The main purpose of OHM-CMP can be broadly summarized as follows:

To provide support to predominantly regional firms in connection with the issues they face and their ideas for research

 OHM-CMP can support the business sector in a number of different ways:

  • Provision of services in the fields of analytics, material testing, engineering, and additive manufacturing
  • Commissioned research in the working areas of the participating professors
  • Issuing of advice for specific remits
  • Conducting long-term research projects

The performance of these tasks by the institute is largely funded by means of commissioned research or public research contracts.
