Institute for educational and health-care research in the health sector

InBVG is a cooperation between research scientists of the Faculty of Health who concentrate on different areas of health-care, therapy, the health sciences and the educational sciences. In various research and development projects, current issues and challenges facing the health sector are explored, and action plans are devised.


Bielefelder Institute for Applied Material Research (BifAM)

BifAM’s activities focus on basic research into the physical properties of innovative materials and also on the intelligent linking, advancement/industrialisation of widely known methods and materials. The research activities are structured by the following three areas of competence "Application and test of new materials in Electrical Engineering and Electronic Engineering", "Characterisation, application and test of new construction materials", and "Modeling and Simulation".


Institute for System Dynamics and Mechatronics (IsyM)

The Institute for System Dynamics and Mechatronics (in short: IsyM) stands for synergetic cooperation between engineers from the fields of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in model-based system development, system dynamics and control technology and mechatronics. Their objectives are to advance methods and procedures, and transfer them directly to industry. The Institute’s research strategy also aims to tap into entirely new application and technological fields such as medical technology and biomechatronics.
