About

AMIBM is a cross-border cooperation between Maastricht University, RWTH Aachen and Fraunhofer IME. AMIBM’s vision is to provide the missing link between fundamental and applied research and the market in the field of biobased materials. It aims to do this by changing the relationship between the production of biobased materials and the value chain.

The goal is to achieve this by developing an integrated, interdisciplinary research program. The program focusses on new strategies to produce advanced biobased materials in a sustainable and economical way. It also emphasizes the development of these novel materials into innovative products with high added value for technical and medical applications.

AMIBM was officially opened on the 9th of December 2016

AMIBM offers a unique approach covering the entire biobased materials value chain, including raw materials (feedstock), polymers (materials) and the end products derived from them (applications). Applications include biobased materials for medicine, environmental protection and industry applications.
