The main building of IFW Dresden is located in direct neighborhood to the Dresden University of technology, which always turns out to be of great advantage. In addition the IFW operates two further research sites in Chemnitz and Dresden-Niedersedlitz.
The scientific work of IFW is supported by the two departments Research Technology and Administration as well as by the staff positions Research funding and Technology transfer.
The scientific library of the Institute mainly provides the members and guests of IFW with literature, but is also available for external use. In addition the library is responsible for the maintenance of the IFW’s publication database.
