An applied research institute for companies in the life sciences, biomedical technology and material sciences
Over 100 employees work at the NMI on highly innovative projects. The NMI is rather unusual in that it is a non-hierarchical organization – there is only one level amongst thirteen working groups and just a small administration, ensuring that scientists are free to work as they see fit – without the constraints of bureaucracy. This, together with excellent quality management and first class services in research and development, has impressed partners from industry and research alike. Across Europe, the NMI works together with more than 100 partners.
The NMI is also an incubator for new companies. The NMI has already seen the successful development of ten new companies thanks to partnerships with the NMI. The NMI offers an ideal setting for fledgling companies which need the support of top scientists and excellent business brains.
The NMI is a business-minded research institute affiliated with the University of Tübingen
– the NMI is economically, legally and administratively independent,
allowing it to operate how it feels best suits the Institute and its
– the close cooperation with the University of Tübingen is supported by
a partnership contract. This contract allows for excellent mutual
support between the University and the NMI.
