Germany: Europe’s Leading Player In Nanotechnology

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on September 25th, 2007

The German Government has supported nanotechnology since the 1980s, and Germany is now the leading player in nanotechnology in Europe in terms of funding (approximately €300-330 million per annum), number of companies and dedicated research centres. The Federal Government spent €330m on nanotechnology in 2006.

Nanotechnology funding in Germany is mainly distributed through the country's network of research institutes-Fraunhofer, Max Planck, and Leibniz-and universities. The institutes are an effective interface between basic research and industry, helping to transform basic research into applications. Funding bodies include the BMBF, research foundation DFG, the Fraunhofer Geselschaft and Max Planck institutes, the Volkswagen Foundation, and the German States. Nanotechnology in Germany 2007 describes the latest activity in government bodies, research centres, universities and companies.
