Micro- and nanotechnology has grown in Dortmund. Dortmund is one of the largest and oldest clusters for micro- and nanotechnologies. Since the early 1980s, numerous companies and research facilities have settled around the Technology Center and the Technical University, on the PHOENIX West business location, and in many other areas of the city. These include technology and market leaders and international players as well as hidden champions, niche suppliers and innovative start-ups.
Dortmund is also the birthplace of the NRW Nano Conference, which takes place in the Congress Center on November 21 and 22, 2018 and addresses an international expert audience.
On the eve of the conference, on November 20, 2018, interested visitors will have the unique opportunity to look behind the scenes at the Dortmund-based companies and research institutions that deal with micro- and nanotechnology and get a foretaste of what to expect from the Nano Conference.
The Economic Development Agency Dortmund, the IVAM Microtechnology Network and TechnologieZentrumDortmund will take you on tour and show you what distinguishes the micro- and nanotechnology location. In addition to company visits, guided tours and presentations, there will be a panel discussion and opportunities for networking.
The event is free of charge for participants. Registration is required. places for the company tours are limited and will be allocated in the order of registration (first come, first served).
