Major objective is the continuous development of a nanotechnology competence network for an efficient transfer of latest R&D&I-results into marketable products. Close cross-linking of the research, economic and educating sectors is of utmost importance. The focus of the activities is on the further development of a dense network between small and medium-sized enterprises with universities, universities of applied sciences and publicly funded research institutions as well as on the promotion of cooperations aiming at defined projects, such as the network projects NanoCarbon, nanoInk and NanoSilver.
The Cluster Nanotechnology is funded within the Bavarian cluster initiative by the Bavarian government. The Nanoinitiative Bayern is responsible for the cluster management.
The network association Nanonetz Bayern acts as an open platform for the cluster activities and is a competent partner in the nanotechnology field for developers and operators in the economy.
