Our engagement in national and international research networks
Active engagement in national and international research networks is of central importance for each research institution. In particular with regard to more complex social, economic and ecological challenges in future, strengths have to be pooled, synergies generated and interdisciplinary alliances forged. An important element is the close incorporation of companies from industry and economy. It is also our institute which is engaged in different technical and strategic networks, in order to advance main research areas or to achieve improved perception of industrial research institutions such as ours in the public sphere.
Forschungsinstitut für Leder und Kunststoffbahnen (FILK) gGmbH (Research Institute of Leather and Plastic Sheeting) comprises more than 150 employees who feel committed to the more than one hundred years of institutional history and who, every day anew through their dedicated, imaginative and technically experienced work enhance the unique material competence of the institute and the comprehensive capacities of the accredited test lab belonging to the institute.
