Nanotechnology in Hessen

Nanotechnology and the materials-based technologies are considered to be the key technologies of the twenty-first century. They incorporate innovative knowledge of the functionalities and properties of materials and processes depending substantially on the novel effects of structures at the micro and nano-scales. Nanotechnology, with its countless potential uses, will give considerable impulses to many important branches in Hessen, and will also become a genuine challenge within the international competition. This applies particularly to the motor industry, the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, producers of optical equipment and tech - no logical pro ducts in the spheres of medicine, environment and energy, also in information and communications technologies.  In these sectors, many small- and mediumsized companies are working as developers, manufacturers or suppliers of high-tech pro ducts, particularly in Hessen. To secure their international market position and competitiveness over the long term, it is vitally important to ensure that nanotechnological know-how and procedures are translated as soon as possible into competitive products and business strategies.

Hessen is an excellent location for major advanced technologies and at the same time, with Frankfurt, an international finance centre situated in the heart of Europe. With around 150 companies providing or using nanotechno logy and over 400 firms engaged in the adjoining fields of materials and surface technology, microsystems technology and optical technology, Hessen is already in an excellent position on both the domestic and international scale. Research in these areas is also being performed at top international level at all of the region’s universities, where about 80 working groups have been organised in the NanoNetwork of Hessen’s universities. To focus and coordinate the technology and location marketing for nanotechnology and materials-based technologies in Hessen, the Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport, Urban and Regional Development in Hessen initiated the Aktionslinie Hessen- Nanotech as one of a series of measures taken by the regional government to promote nanotechnology in Hessen. The Aktionslinie Hessen-Nanotech is managed by the Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH, an agency set up by the regional government of Hessen.
