Fraunhofer Campus

Two institutes from the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft have settled in the Potsdam Science Park: The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Sciences (IAP) and the Bioanalytics and Bioprocesses (IZI-BB) division of the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology. In cooperation with industry leaders, both institutes are developing innovative solutions on the cutting edge between medicine and bio- and material-sciences, from bio-based packaging to lightweight construction materials.

Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP

We make polymers fit for the future - efficient, intelligent and sustainable! We develop bio-based packaging, materials for lightweight construction, fluorescent materials for displays, artificial corneas and much more.

  Main research topics:  
  • Bioeconomy and sustainability: With biopolymers made from renewable raw materials, we enable sustainable products and a circular economy.
  • Energy transition and mobility: By integrating innovative materials into process materials and products, we are driving forward the energy transition and new mobility concepts.
  • Health and quality of life: We offer individual solutions for new active substances, products and processes for medicine, medical technology and cosmetics.
  • Industry and technology: We develop innovative materials, processes and technologies on an industrial scale – from synthesis to prototype.
