Cluster Nanotechnology

We connect nano, we connect people

The cluster´s expertise is to connect nanotechnology competencies from different sectors, in particular from economy, science, politics and education. With a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises, we primarily support networking among SMEs, but also include universities, colleges and research institutes.

The cluster and its networks support the efficient transfer of R&D results into marketable products and promote cooperation between the different stakeholders. The topics include the design and synthesis of nano and hybrid materials, the development of processing technologies, the establishment of analytics & quality control as well as the successful communication of nano products (including opportunity and risk assessment).
The Cluster Nanotechnology is managed by the Nanoinitiative Bayern GmbH.

The Cluster Nanotechnology is managed by Nanoinitiative Bayern GmbH and supported by the Free State of Bavaria as part of the Bavarian Cluster Initiative.
