Applied Material Flow Management

The Institute for Applied Material Flow Management (IfaS) mainly forms the research focus Applied Material Flow Management. In a Germany-wide comparison, the IfaS is one of the institutes with the most third-party funding at universities of applied sciences. It is located at the Environmental Campus in Birkenfeld, where more than 50 employees of the institute are currently working on the intelligent and resource-efficient management of material and energy flows.

Since its foundation in 2001, the IfaS has continuously built up and expanded the research focus "Applied Material Flow Management". The institute offers systemic concepts for the optimisation of regional material systems on a national and international level and implements applied projects for the efficient use of resources that contribute to regional added value in the long term. With this orientation, the research focus "Applied Material Flow Management" is regionally anchored and internationally excellently connected.

Through the development of innovative research fields, constant internationalisation, the training of young scientists and the launch of strategic research cooperations, the IfaS has been able to continuously expand the research focus "Applied Material Flow Management".
