Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology
The Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP Greifswald) is the largest non-university institute in the field of low temperature plasmas, their basics and technical applications in Europe. In addition to application-oriented research, INP promotes the development of plasma-assisted processes and products. The institute carries out research and development from idea to prototype. The topics focus on the needs of the market. At present plasmas for materials and energy as well as for environment and health are the focus of interest. Innovative product ideas of the research of INP are transferred by the spin-offs of the institute. INP promotes actively the training and further education of scientific and technical junior staff in the field of low temperature plasma physics in collaboration with universities, research institutions and industry. The institute is organized as a non-profit organization and is a member of the Leibniz Association (www.leibniz-gemeinschaft.de
) since its foundation.
