Institute of Materials Science and Technology (IMST), Technische Universität Wien (TUW) was founded in 1815, the Technische Universität Wien (TUW) is renowned for its long tradition. It finds high international and domestic recognition in teaching as well as in research and as partner of innovation-oriented enterprises.
Research at the TUW involves many different areas: from multiple basic science disciplines to the development of modern production technologies, information and communication technologies as well as financial mathematics. TUW is Austria’s largest engineering university with more than 20.000 students and 3.500 employees.
The IMST is part of the mechanical engineering department of TUW, it currently has 90 employees, and is involved in research projects covering the full range of engineering materials, from metals over polymers and composites to ceramic materials. In the recent years IMST has gained substantial expertise in the development of innovative systems lithography-based additive manufacturing technologies (AMT). Our AMT team consists of laser scientists, materials scientists, bioengineers and chemists.
Main Expertise in respect to INCITE:
Coordination of EU-projects: IMST has participated in a number of EU-projects. Besides support from IMST-employees, TUW has established a central facility (EU project management unit), which supports the individual departments in the management of European projects.
Systems and processes for AMT: IMST is part of the mechanical engineering department of TUW and has gained excellent expertise in the development of innovative systems for materials testing and lithography-based AMT, with a particular attention to high resolution biomaterials processing and regenerative medicine.
