Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (IPF)

The Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (IPF) conducts application-oriented, fundamental research in the four areas "Functional nanostructured interfaces and polymer systems", "Biology-inspired interface and material design", "Polymer networks: Structure, theory, and application" and "Process-controlled structure formation in polymer materials".  The IPF deals not only with the synthesis of polymeric materials, but also covers modification, characterization, processing and testing. The Leibniz Institute receives the basic financing from the federal government and the federal states of Germany.
