International cooperation

15 joint publications, one patent application, eight workshops and numerous exchanges of personnel on both sides – this is the current track record of the partnership between CENIDE and the University of Tsukuba (Japan). In 2019, both the cooperation agreement and the funding by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) were extended, and in November 2019 the eighth joint symposium was held. But CENIDE also has a long-standing cooperation with the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) of the University of Waterloo in Canada, which led to joint workshops in Waterloo and Duisburg in 2018 and 2019.

CENIDE scientists regularly organize international conferences, workshops and symposia – for example the Materials Chain International Conference 2018 (a profile focus of the UA Ruhr largely supported by CENIDE) and the 3rd International Symposium on “Gas Phase Synthesis of Functional Nanomaterials” in the NETZ. The research work carried out on a daily basis is always based on international cooperation, as this is the only way in which science really works. Regular visits by internationally renowned scientists at CENIDE, often lasting several months, also testify to the intensive international cooperation.
