It is possible to adjust measurements, forms and surface geometries of components highly stressed in industrial production in a targeted manner. To date, this has hardly been possible for material properties close to the surface, so-called fringe properties, such as residual stresses and rigidity. However, it is precisely these properties that are of decisive importance for the life span and the operating behaviour of the components, because stresses in the form of operating loads impact the component from the surface. It is therefore important to obtain a better understanding of the procedures involved in the manufacturing process that result in a change in material properties. This is the planned research area of the CRC/Transregio "Function-Oriented Manufacturing Based on Characteristic Process Signatures".

The Collaborative Research Centre "Supramolecular Chemistry on Proteins" intends to develop new molecules that, in contrast to, for example, most of the familiar active substance molecules with proteins, do not interact through bonding with small, well-defined so-called binding pockets, but rather through bonding with a non-specifically formed surface. Such large-scale interactions have to date not been adequately understood. With the help of the new molecules to be developed, the mech
