Faserinstitut Bremen e. V. (FIBRE) is a scientific institute situated on the campus of the University of Bremen with more than 60 years of experience in the fields of characterisation, development and processing of technical fibres and fibre based composites.
Today 58 scientists and technicians with a background of material science, mechanical engineering, aviation and chemistry cooperate with a huge number of industrial partners and research institutes to improve polymers, fibres and textiles and to implement high-end composites into innovative products. In addition, the institute is active in education and training of engineer-students and technology transfer.
The activities of four teams of competence is supported by modern laboratories for fibres, plastics and composites, which enables the characterisation of materials and process developments in-house and for customers. Pilotplants for fibre spinning and several composite processes are available in the technical center for own trials and those of partners. FIBRE is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001, DIN EN ISO 14001 and DIN EN ISO 17025.
Due to the permanent application and participation of challenging research projects FIBRE is well experienced in project work and project management.
