Involved in R&D from the start
Indutherm has been involved in national and international research projects together with research institutions and universities for more than 25 years.
ZIM, BMBF and IGF projects
ZIM-ZIM projects are cooperative R&D projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection especially for small and medium-sized companies. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research, on the other hand, supports BMBF projects. In the IGF (industrial community research), which is also funded, companies can solve common problems through joint research activities carried out by university institutes and other research bodies.
As part of these various research initiatives, we are developing new processes, alloys and systems in cooperation with research partners such as the University of Bremen, the Bergakademie Freiberg, various other research institutes and partners from industry.
Our customers benefit from the experience and skills we gain during these projects and from the technological developments that result.
