The management team is responsible for a large number of activities at IKEM and, together with the IKEM director Prof. Dr. Michael Rodi and the board of directors, advances the administrative and economic development of the institute. IKEM’s management is supported by a finance and a communication department.


We must ensure that innovative mobility concepts contribute to solving existing problems instead of exacerbating them. That is why the IKEM conducts research on autonomous systems, artificial intelligence and digitalisation.

Climate and Innovation

IKEM examines innovative ways of system transformation and develops communication formats for knowledge transfer. This is how we create acceptance for sustainability topics and apply our research in practice.

Energy Law

Transforming our energy system and increasing the use of renewables is a major undertaking. The IKEM meets this challenge with analyses, expert opinions as well as concepts for the optimization of the legal framework.
