TU Dresden is Number 1 in Nanotechnology in Germany

TU Dresden has received another excellence award. in the university ranking of the German Nanotechnology Association (DV Nano) TU Dresden occupies the first place together with TU Munich. The objective ranking criteria considered the number and impact of the publications related to nanotechnology and the amount of EU and federal funding received. In addition, the study curricula with a major focus on nanotechnology were considered. Moreover, an evaluation based on reputation was also included in the overall contest, where 20 internationally recognized top German researchers were asked for their assessment of the quality of research establishment and teaching facilities in Germany with the question: "At which German university would you let your child study?" Altogether 50 German universities were examined.
"The fact that TU Dresden takes the undisputed first place in the field of nanotechnology in the objective criteria, outnumbering TU Munich, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the RWTH Aachen, is a special honor for the international reputation and excellent work of the researchers active here", says Prof. Gianaurelio Cuniberti, head of the Chair Materials Science and Nanotechnology at TU Dresden. He received for TU Dresden the prize on the 10th of October in Saarbrücken from the hands of representatives of Saarland and the president of DV Nano. "If one also looks at the concentration of the research facilities linked in the DRESDEN-concept and the innovative discipline-covering international master courses in nanoscience, such as Nanobiophysics, Nanoelectronic Systems or Organic and Molecular Electronics, TU Dresden offers unique opportunities for scientists and students in Germany", added Prof. Cuniberti.

Dr. Ralph Nonninger, president of DV Nano, explains why the association has carried out this assessment of the university landscape: "We have looked at the universities so thoroughly because they are the places where new ideas in basic and applied research originate, and where the people are trained who will help to maintain and increase the competitiveness of Germany in the future." Nanotechnology is a decisive driver of innovation in nearly all bran
