Active Involvement in the Leibniz Association

Leibniz-Gemeinschaft 4The INM is a member of the Leibniz Association, which connects 96 research institutions that range in focus on natural, engineering, and environmental sciences to the economics, spatial and social sciences, and the humanities.



Leibniz-Gemeinschaft 5The INM coordinates the Leibniz Science Campus Living Living Therapeutic Materials. Together with Saarland University and the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland, it develops new materials for the personalized administration of biotherapeutics.


Leibniz-Gemeinschaft 6The INM coordinates the Leibniz Research Alliance Nanosafety, which, together with six partners, investigates issues ranging from the uptake of nanoparticles into the human body, its organs and cells to the design of safe nanomaterials.



In 2018, the INM and the Leibniz Association appointed Robert McMeeking, Distinguished Professor of Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA, as Leibniz Chair to recognize his services to the INM. He is one of the world’s leading materials researchers in theoretical modeling and numerical simulation of complex materials.
