Research and development: Tridelta Campus is a hallmark of excellence

As a material, advanced ceramics have special technical properties and therefore meet the highest requirements in demanding applications. Technical ceramics offer high strength and durability (structural ceramics) on the one hand, and excellent electrical and magnetic properties (functional ceramics) on the other. The exciting thing is that ceramic components can be found in almost all industrial application areas: in the automobile (brake discs, injection nozzles, catalytic converters), in electronics (highly functional microchips), in medicine (long-lasting joint implants, dental ceramics) as well as in energy and environmental technology (efficient batteries, fuel cells, cleaning of combustion gases).

Shaping the energy transition: Efficient circular economy

An important driving force for innovations in these fields is the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS) in Hermsdorf, which is part of the IKTS in Dresden. At the Tridelta Campus, one focus is on applications to shape the energy transition. Here, one is involved in the development of batteries for efficient electromobility and stationary energy storage for wind turbines. Ceramic membranes are another field of application. Here, the researchers deal with questions of the separation of climate-damaging gases such as CO2 from industrial combustion processes. The approach is holistically application-oriented and aims at recycling: the CO2 is to be converted back into valuable chemical materials.

Gaining more potential: Our culture of cooperation

The Tridelta Campus offers research close cooperation with companies. There are countless connecting lines via the common material of technical ceramics: electronic circuit elements (microchips) and components (sensor technology) as well as thermal processes (honeycombs, membranes). Our network of institutes for applied research and development-agile small and medium-sized enterprises offers a wealth of innovation potential. In this network, the diverse experiences can generate the synergies that make technical progress on a large scale possible in the first place.

We work on the big questions of our time

The vision has already been clearly formulated by the actors at the Tridelta Campus: The aim is to double the capacities in know-how, production and personnel in the next few years. To this end, a second industrial area is already being developed at the Hermsdorf site to provide space for expansion and new settlements. The focus is deliberately on topics from the global megatrends that generate major growth and high social benefits: Energy transition and e-mobility, environmental technology and circular economy, digitalisation and automation, health and safety.

Complex technologies: diversity of professions

In order to be able to respond adequately to these global challenges with technological solutions, a wide range of competences in research and development is needed. This is reflected at the Tridelta Campus in the diversity of professions: scientific staff with university or college degrees in the fields of ceramic materials and materials science, chemistry and physics, as well as technical specialists who operate aggregates and equipment in the institutes or carry out analyses in the laboratories.

Tridelta Campus is to become a world-renowned trademark for competence and excellence in research, development and application of advanced technical ceramics. New employees who can identify with our campus claim #HightechMacher are very welcome.
