Because of the dristribution of the research groups over various buildings on the campus of the University of Paderborn, it is particularly important to maintain a dynamic communication between the different areas.
Therefore, the "ILH Team", consisting of scientific representatives of the groups, meet every six weeks. They inform about current activities, new projects, new equipment and other themes of the ILH.
In the spring of 2019, three ILH groups (Automotive Lightweight Design, Materials Science and Coatings, Materials & Polymers) will move into a newly built research building on the Mersinweg on the campus of the Paderborn University. A technical hall with a highly modern machinery park, as well as latest technologies in the laboratories closed to a modern office section with open and light architecture create optimal conditions for interdisziplinäre research.
