NMP-REG @ 8th NRW Nano Conference

North Rhine-Westphalia’s leading role in the fields of nanotechnology and materials science is clearly demonstrated at the biennially organised NRW Nano Conference, the most important nanotechnology event in Germany. The focus of the last event, which took place in Dortmund from 21-22 November 2018, was extended from nanotechnology to the topic of “Innovations in Materials and Applications” taking into account current developments in industry and science. International keynotes and plenary talks provided insight into cutting edge technologies and future trends. Furthermore, almost fifty institutes and companies presented their innovative services and products at the accompanying exhibition.

Thus, the conference provided an ideal platform for informing experts as well as the interested public about the objectives and activities of the project NMP-REG. The project aims to improve the existing framework conditions for innovation processes based on nanotechnology, advanced materials and production technology. At present, the project partners develop regional Action Plans that will be implemented in the partner regions in the time period from April 2019 to March 2021. As an example, the Action Plan for North Rhine-Westphalia addresses measures for a better entrepreneurial support in the field of Key Enabling Technologies (KET) including actions to better connect KET startups with companies and capital investors as well as to stimulate potential company founders.

For the first time a startup session was organised during the conference, giving selected KET startups from North Rhine-Westphalia the opportunity to inform about their business cases in front of investors, corporates, innovation professionals and young academics. NMP-REG was involved in the preparation of the session and will keep in touch with the selected startups for further support.

The Interreg Europe Project NMP-REG (Delivering Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials and Production to Regional Manufacturing) started in April 2016 and has a duration of five years. Its main objective is to adjust and improve regional support instruments for a more efficient transfer of Key Enabling Technologies to industrial application. The project consortium consists of seven partners from the European regions of Tuscany/Italy, Flanders/Belgium, Norte/Portugal, Bukarest-Ilfov/Romania and North Rhine-Westphalia. NRW is represented by the state cluster NMWP.NRW. NMP-REG is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) (https://www.interregeurope.eu/nmp-reg/)

The state cluster NanoMicroMaterialsPhotonics.NRW (NMWP.NRW) represents and supports the North Rhine-Westphalian industrial companies, SMEs and science institutions in the areas of nanotechnology, microsystems technology, photonics and innovative materials. Its overall goal is to develop NRW to the most competitive and highest dynamic knowledge-based economic area at national and international level.

Improving healthcare, shift to sustainable energy and make our world a safer place. The development of chips drives global innovation. At the same time, ‘digitalisation’ depends on innovative and efficient hardware just as much as on software. Photonics play an important role in crossing the borders of current microsystem- and chiptechnologies. Because of this, photonics is the next big thing in Micro- and Nano electronics and fits perfectly in the
