Construction Research for Practice
The performance and competitiveness of businesses essentially relies on their research and development activities. Technology leadership becomes the key success driver as globalisation progresses. “Made by IAB” is all about identifying trends and pushing developments forward. We are your partner for application-oriented construction research, and our aim is to align our creative approach with the requirements of the underlying economic framework.. Our work is centred around the needs of our clients. Together we design efficient, sustainable solutions both at the detail and systems level.
IAB Weimar draws on its scientific expertise in several divisions, which include Building Materials and Process Engineering, Construction Systems and Components, Civil Engineering and Pipeline Construction as well as Energy and Building Services. The profile of our Institute includes not only an exceedingly wide array of forward-thinking research and development activities, but also a comprehensive range of services.
We build upon the close collaboration between science and industry to strengthen our position as an important partner in the regional and national research community as well as on the international market. Small- and medium-sized enterprises particularly benefit from our strong ability to innovate. It is thus one of our most important tasks to provide them with access to practical solutions and to jointly transfer those into marketready products.
Targeted education and training activities result in knowledge and skills that enable us to mater future challenges. We thus offer a continuing training platform that builds upon thorough scientific expertise whilst responding to specific market needs and demand patterns, such as our annual IAB Science Days. This is where industry and science meet to share experience and expertise and to interlink their activities more effectively. We also organise seminars and workshops on relevant topics and areas.
Being able to think out of the box makes us your dynamic partner. Diversity is firmly rooted in our understanding as a state-of-the-art research institution. The wide range of R&D activities provides ample proof of how we implement this mission in our day-to-day work. We are open to any new research request that we receive. Many years of experience have taught us that a collaborative approach is the best way to shape innovation.
