TU Ilmenau is a research-strong university - in basic research as well as in applied research. In areas that are important for society, our scientists provide research services at the highest national and international level. Interdisciplinary cooperation makes TU Ilmenau the innovation driver for the region and promotes the transfer of knowledge and technology to society.
"Productive Teaming" is a joint research initiative of the Chemnitz University of Technology, the Technische Universität Ilmenau and the OVGU Magdeburg, which emerged from the Chemnitz-Ilmenau-Magdeburg Research and Innovation Network ("CHIM"). More information
In the new episode of "Forscher im Gespräch", the three representatives of the CHIM research network talk about the innovative concept of human/machine interaction, which is expected to profoundly change the production process: Artificial intelligence, software and sensor technology on the one hand, and humans on the other, working together as a real team.
Clean air, clean water and intact nature are essential for a healthy life. TU Ilmenau conducts interdisciplinary research into how environmental changes affect our health. The focus is on innovative projects on biodiversity research, emission reduction in traffic, radiation exposure and AI in healthcare.
The 2024 Scientific Year offers insights into pioneering research, from hearing aids to surgical robotics. We cordially invite you to join us in discussing the future of the environment, health and technology!
How can the energy supply be made CO2-free in the future? How can the kilogram be measured with high precision after its redefinition? And how can systems for processing digital data be made fail-safe and attack-proof? These are current questions that our scientists are answering. For such forward-looking national and international research projects, we bundle our competencies in interdisciplinary alliances and team up with renowned partners from science, industry and society.
The transfer of our research results to the economy and thus to society as a whole is the third mission of TU Ilmenau alongside research and teaching - research transfer is an important social task for us. We offer our partners in business, politics and culture not only our knowledge, but also highly trained personnel, high-tech equipment and binding property rights.
A research-strong university with a broad range of educational offerings builds on support structures that are capable of conducting research. The Technische Universität Ilmenau has several structural units that provide advice and support for the upcoming research and transfer tasks.
"Well-qualified young scientists are a prerequisite for securing research competence, innovative capacity and academic training in Germany in the long term," states the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. We see it the same way. However, the career paths for young scientists are often difficult to grasp and sometimes rocky. For this reason, the TU Ilmenau supports doctoral candidates, post-docs, post-doctoral candidates, junior and tenure-track professors - in their individual career planning - also financially.
