High-tech from Korea and Germany at Innovations Forum at Hannover Messe
(Nanowerk News) Technology in miniature format is the answer to many
challenges in industry, research and everyday life.
MicroTechnology/HANNOVER MESSE shows solutions with
micro- and nanotechnology for production, automotive and
medical technology as well as numerous other industry
sectors from April 20 to 24, 2009, in Hanover, Germany.
IVAM Microtechnology Network organizes the forum
“Innovations for Industry”, where Korea, the partner country
of this year’s HANNOVER MESSE, will be present within the
scope of a Korean-German symposium. Here for example
Samsung will report on printed electromechanical systems,
and the Yeon-Sei University will speak about injection
The Korea Institute of Machinery &
Materials KIMM will focus on microfactory technology, nano
imprint technology and applications of carbon nanotubes.
Also German companies are going to show high-tech on a
small scale within the Korean-German symposium.
NanoFocus AG will explain how “a little nanometer” can
effect energy efficiency, while LIMO Lissotschenko
Mikrooptik GmbH introduces advanced laser technologies for
surface modification. The Fraunhofer Institute for
Manufacturing Technology and Applied Materials Research
IFAM presents micro manufacturing for biomaterials
Besides a micro and a nano forum the Korean-
German symposium also includes a workshop on
miniaturized systems and its fabrication for
commercialization, organized by the Korea Institute of
Industrial Technology KITECH.
In addition to the forum “Innovations for Industry”, IVAM
organizes the Product Market “Micro, Nano & Materials”. The
exhibitors of this joint pavilion show new trends and
applications from various high-tech fields, among them laser
technology for micro materials processing and
microproduction, surface technologies and energy
harvesting. The forum also picks up these subjects. More
information can be found at www.ivam.eu.
IVAM is an international association of companies and institutes in the
fields of microtechnology, nanotechnology and advanced materials. At
present about 300 companies, institutes and partners from all over the
world are IVAM members. As the communicative bridge between
suppliers and users, IVAM brings innovations to market and creates
competitive advantages via technology marketing. Furthermore, IVAM
offers lobbying services for small and medium-sized enterprises,
