The Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm, abbreviated as TH Nürnberg, is a beacon of contemporary education and innovative research. With approximately 13,000 students, 300 professors, and more than 600 lecturers from various practical fields, it ranks as one of the largest universities in Germany. The university is named after its renowned namesake but is better known for its interdisciplinary research, wide range of highly practical study programs, application-oriented teaching, diverse continuing education activities, and international outlook coupled with strong regional ties. As the most research-intensive of all Bavarian universities, TH Nürnberg plays a pivotal role as an innovation driver for the Nürnberg Metropolitan Region and maintains excellent relationships with businesses, other universities, and non-university research institutions. For several years, the university has consistently ranked among the top ten German universities in terms of third-party funding.
To adequately address emerging topics in product development and material research across all facets, from synthesis to recycling, the Kompetenzzentrum 3D-Visualisierungszentrum, the Umweltinstitut Neumarkt (UIN) and the Kompetenzzentrum Analytik, Nano- und Materialtechnik (KAM) merged to form the new Institut für Chemie, Material- und Produktentwicklung (OHM-CMP). This merger enables comprehensive research into all aspects of a product's lifecycle, essentially from cradle to grave, within a single institute.
Within the network, OHM-CMP is recognized as a specialist in new manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing or advanced joining techniques, as well as sustainability in the product lifecycle, including environmentally friendly material design and the use of safe raw materials.
