03.12.2018 A special kind of event took place in Dortmund on November 20, 2018: twelve companies and research institutions opened their gates and doors and allowed visitors a glance at production facilities and research laboratories. A total of 40 visitors, divided into three groups, took the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of Dortmund’s micro- and nanotechnology community for an afternoon.

In a roundtable discussion following the guided tours and presentations, some of the local players revealed what drives them to work with micro- and nanotechnologies and how they envision the future. The subsequent obligatory networking event was used by hosts and guests to commence or continue individual discussions.
 
The event "Micro & Nanotechnology made in Dortmund" took place on the eve of the 8th NRW Nano-Conference at the invitation of the Economic Development Agency Dortmund, the IVAM Microtechnology Network and the TechnologieZentrumDortmund.
