The work of the Transregional CRC 136 is thematically divided into three project areas:

M for Mechanisms, Modeling and Simulation

F for Manufacturing Processes

C for Characterization

A continuous internal exchange of information beyond the CRC locations is assured as part of the two working groups and close cooperation between individual subprojects and project areas. Besides the scientific aims for the development of the process signatures the Transregional CRC 136 is going to develop and realize sustainable measures and concepts in the areas of gender equality & diversity, promotion of young talents, support of graduate students (subproject Z) and science communication (subproject Ö). Thus it makes a contribution to central socially relevant topics in the research system.
