Principal investigators

Principal investigators (PIs) from all three research institutions which collaborate in IMPRS-CPQM are actively involved in our program, and most of them offer research projects for PhD students. We also include further research partners in order to widen our scientific scope. If you would like to work with a specific PI who currently doesn't offer a project in IMPRS-CPQM, please contact the PI directly to enquire about project opportunities.
