About the employer

The Leib­niz In­sti­tu­te for Plas­ma Sci­ence and Tech­no­lo­gy (INP Greifs­wald) is the lar­gest non-uni­ver­si­ty in­sti­tu­te in the field of low tem­pe­ra­tu­re plas­mas, their ba­sics and tech­ni­cal ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons in Eu­ro­pe. In ad­di­ti­on to ap­p­li­ca­ti­on-ori­en­ted re­se­arch, INP pro­mo­tes the de­ve­lop­ment of plas­ma-as­sis­ted pro­ces­ses and pro­ducts. The in­sti­tu­te car­ri­es out re­se­arch and de­ve­lop­ment from idea to pro­to­ty­pe. The to­pics fo­cus on the nee­ds of the mar­ket. At pre­sent plas­mas for ma­te­ri­als and en­er­gy as well as for en­vi­ron­ment and health are the fo­cus of in­te­rest. In­no­va­ti­ve pro­duct ide­as of the re­se­arch of INP are trans­fer­red by the spin-offs of the in­sti­tu­te. INP pro­mo­tes ac­tive­ly the trai­ning and fur­ther edu­ca­ti­on of sci­en­ti­fic and tech­ni­cal ju­ni­or staff in the field of low tem­pe­ra­tu­re plas­ma phy­sics in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with uni­ver­si­ties, re­se­arch in­sti­tu­ti­ons and in­dus­try. The in­sti­tu­te is or­ga­ni­zed as a non-pro­fit or­ga­niza­t­i­on and is a mem­ber of the Leib­niz As­so­cia­ti­on (www.​leib­niz-ge­mein­schaft.​de) sin­ce its foun­da­ti­on.

Or­ga­niza­t­i­on

The Leib­niz In­sti­tu­te for Plas­ma Sci­ence and Tech­no­lo­gy (INP) is a re­se­arch in­sti­tu­ti­on of the Leib­niz As­so­cia­ti­on and has the le­gal form of a re­gis­te­red as­so­cia­ti­on. INP is an or­ga­niza­t­io­nal­ly and le­gal­ly in­de­pen­dent re­se­arch in­sti­tu­te with the fol­lo­wing con­sti­tu­ent bo­dies:

  • ge­ne­ral as­sem­bly,
  • board of trus­tees and
  • sci­en­ti­fic ad­vi­so­ry coun­cil.

On the ba­sis of pa­ri­ty, it is joint­ly fi­nan­ced by its host sta­te - Meck­len­burg-Wes­tern Po­me­ra­nia - and the Ger­man fe­deral go­vern­ment. The func­tio­nal re­s­pon­si­bi­li­ty lies with the Mi­nis­try for Edu­ca­ti­on, Sci­ence and Cul­tu­re at host-sta­te le­vel and with the Fe­deral Mi­nis­try for Edu­ca­ti­on and Re­se­arch at fe­deral le­vel. The ma­nage­ment of the in­sti­tu­te, the board, con­sists of three peop­le with one di­rec­tor. Sin­ce 2003 INP is led by Prof. Dr. Klaus-Die­ter Welt­mann.

Facts and Fi­gu­res
Buil­ding

Sin­ce 1999 INP Greifs­wald is lo­ca­ted in Fe­lix-Haus­dorff-Str. 2 in Greifs­wald. It is in the midst of the sci­en­ti­fic and me­di­cal cam­pus of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Greifs­wald. The main buil­ding has a floor space of about 3.700 squa­re metres. It is equip­ped with 130 work­sta­tions and 41 la­bo­ra­to­ries. The ex­ten­si­on buil­ding clo­sing the gap bet­ween INP and Bio­tech­ni­kum Greifs­wald was opened in 2010. The­re, main­ly the la­bo­ra­to­ries and of­fices of the cent­re for in­no­va­ti­on com­pe­tence (ZIK) plas­ma­tis are hou­sed. 30 work­sta­tions and eight la­bo­ra­to­ries are lo­ca­ted on 540 squa­re metres.

Staff

INP has about 195 em­ployees at pre­sent. The sci­en­ti­fic di­sci­pli­nes in­clu­de phy­sics, che­mis­try, phar­ma­cy and bio­lo­gy.

Bud­get

INP had a to­tal bud­get of about 20.2 mil­li­on eu­ro in 2013. 10.3 mil­li­on eu­ro of that are com­pe­ti­ti­ve third-par­ty funds rai­sed from fe­deral and sta­te mi­nis­tries, the Ger­man Re­se­arch Foun­da­ti­on (DFG), the Eu­ropean Uni­on and in­dus­try.
