The GÖDE Group, in collaboration with the TEC Institut für technische Innovationen, the GÖDE-Foundation and the Institute for Gravity Research, is involved in both basic research and applied research.
The TEC-Institut for technical innovations was set up as a facility for fundamental research in physics. Over time TEC turned its focus more and more to applied research and R&D in innovative technologies.
Today, TEC is active in the fields of LED lighting technology, photovoltaics and 3D printing. The institute conducts product tests and long-term studies, is involved in quality management for the product range of ANTARIS and organizes interdisciplinary cooperation with various universities.
The GÖDE-Foundation supports the promotion of science and education. It supports and leads research projects dealing with issues at the limit of classic physics. Its main area of interest lies in the exploration of gravity and its interaction with other physical fundamental forces. With the GÖDE Award for Gravity Research, the GÖDE-Foundation has offered one million Euros for the evidence of a positive influence of gravitation. In the area of educational support, the Foundation has become involved with the initiative “Solar Energy for Education” in international projects, e.g. in Vietnam.
