About us

The University of Kassel, in conjunction with B.Braun Melsungen, brought the Polymer Application Center, UNIpace, to life. The objective of the center is to forge a stronger bond between scientific research in polymer processing and practically applied manufacturing of medical technology. This includes, for example, up scaling laboratory trials and the optimization of currently existing manufacturing processes.

The UNIpace Polymer Application Center is located on the primary University of Kassel campus. The center is under the leadership of the Department Head for Polymer Technology (Professor Dr.-Eng.  Hans-Peter Heim) and from a business head. A strong bond between the department and the Application Center allows for synergetic cooperation with university research (knowledge transfer, equipment, etc.).  

An industrial advisory board functions as a strategic and controlling body. This board contains representatives from the University of Kassel and B.Braun Melsungen. Additionally, a board of trustees consisting of further industrial representatives will play the part of an advisory committee.

The center is always seeking to expand its cooperation with further business entities.
