  • Research Centre MAIN                Research Centre MAIN

    The task of the Centre for Materials, Architectures and Integration of Nanomembranes (MAIN) as a central scientific institution is the exploratory research of the fundamental physical and chemical properties and the development of the engineering application potential of flexible nanostructured membranes (nanomembranes) as a novel class of materials. The term "nanomembranes" covers very thin (down to an atomic layer) but functional structures extending into the micrometer scale, which are characterised by special electronic, optoelectronic, or electrochemical properties combined with high mechanical flexibility. They form the basis for new types of tiny components that are bendable, ductile, and malleable and thus extremely adaptable.

  • Centre for Knowledge and Technology Transfer Centre for Knowledge and Technology Transfer

    Transfer processes have become increasingly important in recent years. Through successful knowledge and technology transfer, the university of Chemnitz can enhance its visibility in the region and form profitable cooperation between science and industry through active partnerships.

    To support a successful transfer strategy, the Academy for Knowledge Transfer at Chemnitz University of Technology has been developed into a centre for knowledge and technology transfer as the university's central interface to business and society. Transfer processes are designed and supported within the centre. The aim is to record and bundle the offers of the Chemnitz University of Technology in technology and knowledge transfer and to make them more visible both internally and externally. In addition, this support should lead to an overall expansion of the transfer offers and their use in the region and beyond.
