Welcome to our Institute!

Geosciences address urgent topics regarding the future of mankind. These include a healthy environment, the supply of water, the use of sustainable energy and the careful extraction of a wide variety of raw materials for our everyday life. Our Institute in Darmstadt is one of only three locations in Germany with a broad range of Applied Geosciences. We are embedded within the environment of a technical university, which provides optimal connections in research and teaching with engineering and materials sciences, with whom the IAG forms a joint department.
