Management and organisation

With the new scientific director Prof. Thomas Schroeder taking office in February 2018 and the institute´s Leibniz evaluation in December 2018, the IKZ Institute Concept 2019 was developed – and fully supported by the evaluation committee - to strengthen IKZ´s future mission & strategy on science & technology as well as service & transfer on crystalline materials. To put this strategy in the best possible way in place, IKZ rearranged its management & organization structure on 1st April, 2019.

Research Programs | 2 x 2 Matrix structure

The four IKZ research programs are provided by the four scientific departments. To promote interdisciplinarity in our research efforts from basic over applied up to pre-industrial developments, the research programs are organized in a 2 x 2 matrix structure. IKZ´s research and development activities thereby follow two innovation pathways, namely innovations in and by crystalline materials.
