In order to cope even better with current and future challenges, the ISC is undergoing integration into the PFI. The integration offers many advantages. "We create synergies and strengthen the processes on site," explains PFI Chairman Michael Tackenberg. The name "ISC" and the professional know-how will be retained. The topic of digitalisation will be pushed forward: The proven and diverse training programmes continue as usual on site. Online seminars on specific topics strengthen the offer in the digital field. Institute Director Dr. Kerstin Schulte also welcomes the merging of the two poles: "We are now able to combine all forces under one roof and further expand our research activities. We are fit for the future!"
