Areas of Expertise and Services

Focus on progress
The Cluster Nanotechnology in Bavaria

In order to benefit from the huge potential of nanotechnology for Bavaria, the Cluster Nanotechnology was founded from an initiative of the Bavarian State government in 2006. The Nanoinitiative Bayern GmbH is responsible for management of the cluster. We create connections between companies, research and teaching institutions, associations and other actors.

Effective networking

We facilitate cooperations by linking universities, colleges and public research facilities to industry users. In addition to this, we get decision-makers from politics to talk to core actors from the economy and research.

Communication of new insights

Our workshops, seminars and information events help you stay well informed. Visit us at our trade fair stalls or present your results at trade fairs together with us. We perform active research marketing nationally and internationally. On demand, we collect know-how on a concrete issue in the area of technology and prepare it for you.

Balanced discussion of the opportunities and risks

As in any new technology, lots of research work remains to be done. In addition to technical challenges, some questions on work safety, toxicity and disposal of nano materials are still unanswered. We take a position, since our objective is responsible further development of nanotechnology.

From research to development

Targeted support leads to R&D projects for creation of innovative products that are born of cooperations. We support you in your search for suitable promotional funds and in filing applications. We also coordinate your project down to complete project management on request.

From development to the product

We support start-ups and SMEs by integrating them into network projects. We use synergies with the objective of creating products and solutions that are mature for the market. We support the partners by consulting of public funding, publicity, project management, feasibility studies and market analyses.

Taking the product to the global market

In addition to the US and Japan, Germany holds a global top position in the area of nanotechnology where technology leadership is concerned. We help to secure and develop this peak position in the long term by cooperation with national and international institutions, networks and companies.
