The cluster CU West aims to make a decisive contribution to strengthening regional competencies in the field of high-performance fibre composite technology. With the Leibnitz Institute for Composites (IVW), future technologies are being worked on in the working groups: “Thermoplastics – from material to automated production”, “Smart Structures – multifunctional composites” and “Bio Composites”. The Institute of Textile Technology (ITA) contributes its expertise in the working group “Yarns and Textiles”.
