Nanotechnology Research - Initiatives and Networks in Germany
Showing results 21 - 30 of 33 for networks and initiatives in Germany:
A German initiative to promote the entrepreneurial autonomy of young scientists in nanotechnologies.
The focus is on basic research in the three areas of metal-, semiconductor-, and molecular/atomic-based spintronics with the visionary goal of developing nanoscale spintronic devices based on a detailed knowledge of the underlying atomistic spin-dependent interactions and processes.
A career network for young female scientists involved in the fields of nanotechnologies.
(Site in German) NanoCare is a joint project of German industry, universities and research institutes to gain scientific knowledge about potential health risks of engineered nanoparticles.
This European project's goal is to establish new methodologies (high-resolution ion microscopy, radiotracer) on skin cross sections to study the quality of skin as a barrier against formulations containing nanoparticles.
Within NanoMat three research centers of the Hermann von Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft Deutscher Forschungszentren, ten universities with natural and engineering science departments, one Max Planck Institute, an Institute of the Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, three Fraunhofer Institutes, an Institute of the Polish Academy of Science, the DECHEMA and four major companies coordinate their research programmes. The theme of the research is 'Synthesis and investigation of nanostructured metals and ceramics, and investigation of the materials and applications which result from their nanoscale nature.'
In the cluster of excellence Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM), scientists from various research facilities in the Munich area in the fields of physics, biophysics, physical chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, biology, electronics and medicine work together with the goal of designing, producing and controlling a series of artificial and multifunctional nanosystems.
(Site in German) A competence center that combines research institutions and industrial companies in the area of ultra-precision surface processing.
(In German) Im Verbraucherportal des Ministeriums für Ländlichen Raum und Verbraucherschutz Baden-Württemberg finden Interessierte Informationen zu Verbraucheraspekten im Umgang mit Nanotechnologien.
This German center of competence is coordinated by Fraunhofer-Institute IWS Dresden. It joins 51 enterprises, 10 university institutes, 22 research institutes, and 5 corporations into a common network.
