No matter what your field of study, you will have access to cutting-edge equipment to perform research at an internationally competitive level.


ISTA’s interconnected facilities encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, in accordance with the institute’s founding principles.

Our key facilities include:

New Lab Buildings

A new Chemistry Lab Building has opened in Fall 2021 and hosts the research groups in chemistry. A sixth lab building (Lab Building North) including a seminar center will follow soon after, along with a visitor center to serve as a central location for on-campus outreach and science education activities. Both the visitor center and the Lab Building North are in the planning stage and scheduled to open in 2022 and 2023, respectively.

Technology and Research center

To bridge the gap between research and industry, the new technology and research center IST Park across the road from ISTA opened on September 30, 2019.

IST Park provides state-of-the-art lab and office infrastructure, customizable to the needs of university spin-offs, deep tech startups, and R&D companies to support the translation of research findings into innovative products. The exchange within the IST Park community as well as interaction with the researchers of ISTA is highly encouraged. The current community comprises companies active in software as well as in the life sciences and physical sciences, and organizations supporting innovative projects.
