neoplas GmbH puts its emphasis on utilisation and valorisation of research results for industrial applications. Clients are both public research institutions and high technology companies. Being founded as a spin-off of the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP Greifswald), neoplas acts as a developing and constructing partner, but includes management and marketing know-how to bridge the gap between a first idea in the lab and the successful product launch on the market. neoplas has been involved in several national and international projects and currently employs 16 persons (FTA). The three main competencies of the neoplas are:
- Expedient technology development
