The NanoNetzwerkHessen (NNH) was established by five universities and five universities of applied sciences of Hessen to start a highly oriented interworking in the field of nanotechnology. The aim of NNH is the consolidation of Hessen as a location for nanotechnology by concentrating the existing competencies and cooperation of nanotechnology at Hessens universities.
Researcher of physics, chemistry, biology, pharmacy, medical science, material science and other engineering technologies are working on the field of nanotechnology at the universities in Hessen. Even researchers from the humanities are dealing with the challenge of this science. Especially the penetration of classical disciplines enforces this science’s innovation potential. Furthermore, it presents excellent conditions for extensive cooperation in Hessen. The technologies at the universities in Hessen cover a wide range of activities. They start from nanostructured materials, nanosystem technologies, nanomedical science, nanobiotechnology and nanoanalytics.
The NNH offers its partners an infrastructure to start development with researchers, engineers and users in the field of nanotechnology. The network connects science and economics in such a strong way that a faster realization of nanotechnical knowledge concerning products, production processes and services can be easily achieved.
