Nearly all branches of German industry profit from developments in nano research. Applica-tions are found in the automotive sector, mechanical engineering, medical technology, chemi-cal, electronic and optical industries. But nanotechnology still has a wealth of innovative po-tential to exploit.
With the “Nano Initiative – Action Plan 2010” the Federal Government has introduced a national funding concept spanning all policy areas. Part of the High-Tech Strategy for Germany, the Nano Initiative contributes to opening up new leading markets and creating optimum conditions for researchers and entrepreneurs. Our target: to expedite the transformation of ideas into new, marketable products, processes and services so that Germany can become the world’s most research- and innovationfriendly nation by 2020.
Today, more than 650 companies in Germany are already developing, using or selling their nano products. Why don’t you profit from this excellent environment and make the most of your opportunities in Germany?
