In addition to publicly funded projects, scientists at the Hohenstein Institute also carry out contract work for companies.
Our clients benefit from the close cooperation between researchers from a diverse range of scientific disciplines. In the context of contract research, you have access to combined expertise from the fields of textiles, medicine, human biology, chemistry or physics for the development and optimisation of existing products or processes as well as researching product innovations - all from a single source.
You can experience an additional extension to this unique expertise as a result of our involvement in various national and international research networks, which gives us up-to-date access to the latest scientific discoveries and state-of-the art technology in a wide range of sectors.
