We enable innovation. Everywhere.
The NanoMicroMaterialsPhotonic.NRW state cluster is a public service body. Situated in Dusseldorf, it was set up in 2009 as part of the excellence initiative organised by the North Rhine-Westphalia state government aimed at consolidating NRW’s position in the nanotechnology, microtechnology, new materials and optical technology segments.
The cluster operates as an association, i.e. it represents the interests of its members from the fields of new materials, nanotechnology, microsystems engineering and optical technologies. Specifically, this means that the cluster acts as a network for organisations from industry and commerce, science and politics, for example by organising trade congresses, joint trade fair booths in Germany and abroad, or by initiating workshops on selected topic areas. The cluster also specifically supports cooperation ventures between the corporate, research and political environments in North Rhine-Westphalia. The office in Düsseldorf is led by cluster manager Dr.-Ing. Harald Cremer.
