The international network for innovative nanocarbon products


The target of the Network NanoCarbon is the safe and responsible further development of nanocarbons and their products. Within the network, more than 20 companies and research institutes from Germany, Europe and overseas work closely to implement innovative products and applications in a sustainable and resource friendly manner.

The technical potential of nanocarbon materials concerns various industries. Therefore, the network combines numerous partners with outstanding expertise in their respective specialist field. The center of the network activities is the open exchange between the network partners and joint R&D projects. The partners are supported by a professional network management. The management takes care of all administrative tasks, organises regular meetings, and provides comprehensible information on recent insights and achievements.

Would you like to know more about the applications and advantages of nanocarbons or do you already have a specific idea for which you are looking for competent partners?

Use the bundled competences within the Network NanoCarbon and / or become a member of the competence network. You can contact us here.

Starting 2015, the Network NanoCarbon and the Cluster Nanotechnology have successfully been organising the Annual Conference NanoCarbon. The two-day event always takes place at the end of February / beginning of March in Würzburg, Germany and has evolved to an established meeting place for international nanocarbon stakeholders from research and industry. Information on this year’s event as well as past Annual Conferences can be found here.

For us, the unbiased examination of opportunities and risks of nanocarbon materials is important in the entire product lifecycle. In order to tap the full potential of nanocarbons and address open questions concerning possible risks, we are particularly committed to the responsible preparation and realisation of R&D projects. Our focus is the rational and reasonable application of the material. The goal is developing nanocarbon based products that offer an additional benefit for the customer while ensuring high product safety.

Information on already-developed insights and their communication to the public are important aspects of the network tasks. Novel results from science and research are part of the network activities. R&D projects to utilise opportunities and minimise risks are initiated and pursued from within the network. Therefore, technical, economical, ecological, and toxicological aspects alike are considered in the network and being completed by the expertise of innovative partners from research and industry.
