AMIBM is a cross-border cooperation between Maastricht University, RWTH Aachen and Fraunhofer IME. The Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM) is located at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, The Netherlands.
RWTH Aachen University
The work of the research centers of RWTH Aachen is closely oriented towards the current needs of industry. This leads to numerous developments that are patented and utilized. The competence centers of RWTH Aachen achieve very effective cross-subject, inter-faculty collaboration in interdisciplinary networks while maintaining a high level of specialization and differentiation into distinct subject areas.
The Institut für Textiltechnik belongs to the Faculty for Mechanical Engineering of RWTH Aachen University. The focus of our research is therefore on the development of new textile machines and new textile processes.
The defining feature of our institute is the pursuit of a future-oriented biomedical engineering research profile, combining conventional medical engineering with natural sciences, and especially with biosciences. To this end RWTH Aachen offers an exceptional opportunity with its combined expertise in the technical faculties, the natural sciences faculty and the medical faculty within the University Hospital.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME conducts research in the field of applied life sciences from a molecular level to entire ecosystems. Our interdisciplinary organization and laboratories with most recent equipment including GMP facilities and complex facilities for environmental simulations allow a wide spectrum of research and development services in the division Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology.
