Press release from: German Center for Research and Innovation

The German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI), in cooperation with the Consortium of the Ruhr Universities (ConRuhr) and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, will host a discussion on nanotechnology and its applications in the fields of energy, electronics, medicine, and science. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., at the German House New York (871 United Nations Plaza, First Avenue, btw. 48th & 49th Streets).

Small particles, big business: Nanotechnology and its innovative applications are having an increasingly significant impact on our daily lives, from better-performing batteries to touchscreens and sunscreens. But nanotech, the manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale, is also utilized to alleviate global problems, with advances such as cutting-edge cancer treatments, water purification, and increased efficiency in energy technology. On April 13, German and U.S. experts will discuss nanotech’s everyday impact in the fields of energy, electronics, medicine, and science, as well as address its application in the business sphere, bridging the gap between research and development. Moderated by Prof. Dr. Rolf Kinne, Director Emeritus of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund, Germany, the panel will include: Vincent Caprio, Founder and Executive Director of the New York NanoBusiness Alliance, New York, USA; Axel Lorke, Pro­­fessor for Experimental Physics, Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany; Cherie Kagan, Associate Professor, Departments of Electrical and Systems Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Chemistry, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA; and Stefan Strauf, Assistant Professor of Physics and Engineering Physics, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, USA.

The event will conclude with the exhibition opening of “NanoArt”, a series that features nano images from laboratories at the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CeNIDE), the Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM), the Center for NanoScience (CeNS) Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, the University Alliance Metropolis Ruhr, the Leibniz Institute for Analytical Sciences (ISAS e.V.) and the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.

The German Center for Research and Innovation, www.GermanInnovation.org, provides information and support for the realization of cooperative and collaborative projects between North America and Germany. With the goal of enhancing communication on the critical challenges of the 21st century, the GCRI hosts a wide range of events from lectures and exhibitions to workshops and science dinners. Opened in February 2010, the GCRI was created as a cornerstone of the German government’s initiative to internationalize science and research and is one of five centers worldwide.
