Organisation

The IfL is organized in a matrix structure of departments and research areas:

  • The departments are permanent units. They guarantee compliance with the continuous tasks in research, transfer, service and administration, which are enshrined in the institute´s statute.

  • The research areas at IfL form temporally flexible and variable units. They are based on the latest research issues and policies of the institute and are in an intense mutual exchange.
