Solar Technologies Go Hybrid

SolTech is an interdisciplinary project initiated by the Government of Bavaria to explore innovative concepts for converting solar energy into electricity and non-fossil fuels. SolTech complements research by chemists and physicists at five different Bavarian Universities and is funded with 50 million Euro.


Bavarian Polymer Institute

The Key Laboratory of Supramolecular Polymers of the Bavarian Polymer Institute (BPI), initiated in 2016 as a joint research institute of the Universities of Bayreuth, Erlangen-Nürnberg and Würzburg. Within this strategic collaboration, the three North Bavarian Universities combine their expertise in the fields of polymer science and polymer engineering. The Bavarian Polymer Institute fosters cutting-edge interdisciplinary research by enabling strategic and infrastructural collaborations with joint research projects and the establishment of common know-how-chains.
