New associated partners! BAM and TH Nürnberg join GERRI

In early 2018 the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) and the Nuremberg Institute of Technology (or Nuremberg Tech) joined GERRI as associated partners. BAM is a scientific and technical institute with responsibility to the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). As an interface between economy, science and politics, BAM will be an important partner in the GERRI network. The federal authority has state-of-the-art testing facilities and strengthens our service divisions with its expertise in materials testing and development. 

Furthermore, Nuremberg Tech joins the network, represented by the Institute of Mechanical Process Engineering under the direction of Prof. U. Teipel. With a research focus on particle technologies and raw material innovations and efficiency, they are expanding our team very well. GERRI is looking forward to the upcoming cooperation with both institutions.
