New materials

From materials to innovations

Bavaria is one of the international leaders in the field of "New Materials". With its broad-based research landscape, highly innovative technology and process companies as well as a strong user industry, it has the best prerequisites to play the leading role in the future. The Cluster New Materials is the Bavarian-wide information, communication and cooperation platform. The Cluster New Materials is managed by the Bayern Innovativ GmbH and brings together players from science and industry - interdisciplinary and across technologies and industries. The creation of transparency with regard to material competencies - especially from Bavaria - and marketing of innovations with new materials is one of the Cluster's core competence.
