The FIT is a research institution of national and international importance for the development of future-oriented, innovative materials and materials systems. Special focus is placed on materials systems that react to changes in the environment and thus, inspired by plants and animals, have life-like functions. Following the model of living nature, these "vital" materials systems are interactive, adaptive, energy-autonomous, self-repairing, self-improving or even learning. These extraordinary properties and functions make them a decisive advance in the sustainable development of technology and society.
