At the end of January, nano tech, the world’s largest trade fair for nanotechnology, took place in Tokyo. More than 48,000 international trade visitors caught up on nanotechnological products, applications and processes from all around the world at the international exhibition center.
At the German pavilion, organized by IVAM Microtechnology Network, exhibitors from Germany presented their innovations. Functional nano coatings, plasma coating systems and 3D nanoscale patterning were presented as well as innovative laser technology, high-precision pulsation-free pumps and new types of nanomaterials e.g. for transparent electronics.
Furthermore, numerous nanotechnology clusters and networks like the Bavarian Cluster Nanotechnology, the network NanoCarbon and the network nanoInk presented themselves at the German pavilion.
“The German exhibitors are very satisfied with the trade fair and the quality of initial business contacts”, says Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich, CEO of IVAM. “Besides research topics, a number of specific industrial cooperations have been discussed. Many companies were able to intensify existing contacts and also make new ones. The companies are very confident that in the medium run these contacts will lead to new economic success.”
Nano tech stands out due to its huge internationality. More than one third of the exhibitors do not come from Japan. The trade visitors are not only people from Japan, especially guests from the neighboring countries of Korea and China come to visit the exhibition. “Also because of this internationality nano tech is an important exhibition for German nanotechnology companies”, emphasizes Dr. Dietrich.
For the exhibitors IVAM organized business meetings with Japanese companies prior to the fair trade in order to make the most of the opportunity for establishing new contacts. In the course of the forum a session with the topic “Nanotechnology – Innovations made in Germany” took place where the exhibitors had the opportunity to present new developments in German nanotechnology.
Because of the positive outcome of the fair IVAM plans to organize the German pavilion at nano tech 2017. Information concerning this will be available soon from IVAM Microtechnology Network.
