The Research Association 3-D MID deals with industry-related research topics. The projects are financed by own funds or within the scope of AiF-IGF projects with public funds of the BMWi (Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy).
The AiF – German Federation of Industrial Research Associations – is an industry-based innovation network founded in 1954 to promote research and development in medium-sized companies. It links the interests of industry, science and politics. As an umbrella organisation of around 100 industry-specific research associations, its task is to strengthen the competitiveness of the German economy in the long term. The AiF is a non-profit association and is the responsible body for joint industrial research.
The Industrial Collective Research (IGF) builds a bridge between basic research and economic application. Under the umbrella of the AiF research associations, new technologies are prepared for entire sectors and increasingly across sectors in order to maintain and strengthen the competitiveness of medium-sized companies. The Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) supports the IGF with public funds.
