science convergence and technological clustering

the dresden way

Dresden is one of the most relevant scientific clusters in Europe in the field of nano and bio sciences and the Dresden University of Technology (DUT) benefits from the fortunate presence of an exceptional number of extra-university research institutes, 10 Fraunhofer Institutes (Applied Research), 3 Max Planck Institutes (Fundamental Research), and 3 research institutes belonging to the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Society. Moreover, Dresden hosts a large cluster of microelectronics industries (AMD, Infineon, and Quimonda to name few of them) plus a large number of related smaller ones as well as biotechnological oriented small spin-off companies creating an ideal environment for applied research stemming from nano-bio sciences. DUT itself was founded in 1828 and is among Germany oldest institutes of engineering sciences. Today more than 30.000 students are enrolled in 14 departments ranging from all fields of natural and engineering sciences to humanities and social sciences.
