New Special Research Field at ILEK

The DFG, Germany’s most important research funding institution, has awarded a multi-million euro grant to a consortium of university departments headed by Prof. Werner Sobek. The new Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 1244) will focus on the further advancement of adaptive structures, a concept developed by ILEK (jointly with the ISYS institute). ILEK (Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design) will take the lead in the research project. Prof. Werner Sobek is director of ILEK.
