Our Research Groups

The Institute consists of four departments. Each of them is headed by a director and is scientifically autonomous. In each of the four departments, thematically related research groups are integrated. They have their own scientific priorities and pursue independent research projects.

In our projects, we not only think in departments or disciplines. We focus on communication and cooperation. We draw inspiration from each other’s different perspectives, develop joint projects and thus benefit from the expertise of the other subject areas.
