On May 23 and 24, 2023, the NRW Nano Conference took place in Dortmund as the largest German conference with international appeal in the field of nanotechnology, innovative materials and related application fields and markets.
The high economic, scientific as well as political relevance is also reflected by the excellent program with highly topical plenary lectures by Dr. Heike Riel (IBM Fellow), Professor Constantin Häfner (Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT), Professor Leonid V. Zhigilei (University of Virginia) and Dr. Lutz Aschke (Photonics21), a panel discussion with top-class representatives from science and industry as well as the technical sessions "Quantum Technologies", "Energy", "Health", "Advanced Materials", "Electronics", "NRW Innovation Projects" and "Photonics". A large poster exhibition with around 100 scientific posters offered young scientists from NRW the opportunity to network with industry and science, as well as with students from other universities and institutes. Nanotechnologies and innovative materials provide important impulses and technologies in North Rhine-Westphalia for solving global challenges, for example in modern lidar sensors for the autonomous mobility of the future, neuromorphic chips with high energy efficiency and performance, intelligent management of energy storage and the quantum technologies - from sensor technology to quantum computing.
NRW Minister of Economic Affairs Mona Neubaur visited the NMWP booth and informed herself about the activities.
