Opening science, releasing and discussing research results as early as possible – this is our institute’s approach. Our aim is to be a relevant source of information and science.

That’s why the HIIG’s researchers and scientists will be happy to offer you their expert evaluations. We’ll set up meetings and find discussion partners for you. Please send an e-mail to or call us at +49(0)30 2007-6082. You can also receive press information by registering for our press distribution list or our regular newsletter.
