The BeEM is part of the Collaborative Research Center SFB 986, so-called "Tailor-Made Multi Scale Materials Systems". The Collaborative Research Center was established in 20212 by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The SFB conducts basic research for a new class of materials that combine material properties that have not previously corresponded. Webpage of SFB 986. Zur Webseite des SFB 986.
