Publicly Funded Research

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the public sponsors and their respective project management agencies for the financial funding of our research projects. This includes in particular the Federal Ministries BMBF and BMWi, AiF, EU, DFG, the NRW state and many other organizations and foundations.

 

The projects at ITA are mostly carried out in close cooperation with the industry. The majority of the projects are designed to be multidisciplinary. For this purpose, we cooperate with other faculties of RWTH Aachen University and with a number of research institutes at other universities and organisations.
