Hybrid Materials -
Nano goes Macro
Technology platform for
the combination of macro
The initiative Nano goes Macro was founded in 2017 by the Cluster Nanotechnology and is a cross-industry technology platform for the combination of nano and macro materials, focusing on fiber-reinforced systems.
Nanomaterials or nanoobjects are all materials that lie in at least one dimension in the nanoscale range (from 1 nm to 100 nm). Depending on their chemical composition and morphological structure, nanomaterials offer a variety of options for improving the properties of macroscopic components, for example with regard to their mechanical properties or their specific functionalities.
In particular, we consider semi-finished products or components based on fiber-reinforced plastics (glass fiber reinforced plastics (GRP) and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP)) as well as cellulose and shape memory alloys as macro materials.
The combination of the two classes of materials provides significant advantages in particular in the areas of lightweight construction, energy storage, energy conversion, construction and processing. The aim of the platform is to bundle the high innovation potential of both material classes and to develop new functional hybrid materials.
Main topics of the initiative
Take the chance and present your work / projects and activities at the conference. The contribution including a short abstract (max 2.000 characters) can be submitted by Monday, 28 June 2019 via e-mail (info(at)nanoinitiative-bayern.de) or at hybrid.nanogoesmacro.de. The organisation committee will compose an interesting and versatile program from all applications received.
We are looking forward to numerous submissions and your contribution!
