Networking of competences, resources and potentials for industrial and scientific joint research in the fields of research and application- and product-oriented development in the profile lines of the FG Kunststofftechnik


Strengthening of the basis for the acquisition of third-party funds and the ability of the FG Kunststofftechnik to handle regional, supra-regional and international projects

At the same time, the practical relevance of teaching is increased and the personnel transfer between university and companies that want to employ qualified graduates or student employees for internships or are interested in carrying out student work is strengthened.
