DRESDEN-concept Science and Innovation Campus continues to grow: Alliance gains three new members
Published on in RTG 2767 NEWS
We are happy to announce that one of our RTG's cooperating institutions has become a member of the DRESDEN-concept research alliance: The Kurt-Schwabe-Institut für Mess- und Sensortechnik Meinsberg e.V. (Kurt Schwabe Institute for Measurement and Sensor Technology Meinsberg - KSI Meinsberg) joined the alliance in the last quarter of 2022.
The DRESDEN-concept research alliance has taken on three new members in one go. In addition to the KSI, NaMLab and the Institute for Saxon History and Folklore (ISGV) became new members. The alliance now boasts 36 partner institutions, which are working together to develop the research hub in Dresden into a DRESDEN-concept Science and Innovation Campus.
Since the establishment of the DRESDEN-concept alliance in 2010, the research alliance of TU Dresden with local, extramural research and cultural institutions has grown immensely. The number of DRESDEN-concept partners has steadily increased over the past few years from 15 to 36. The partners are united by the goal of promoting Dresden as a research hub while creating and utilizing synergies in research, teaching, infrastructure and administration. Through their close cooperation, they are well on their way to developing Dresden as a research location into an internationally visible DRESDEN-concept Science and Innovation Campus.
With the addition of the Kurt Schwabe Institute for Measurement and Sensor Technology Meinsberg (KSI Meinsberg), DRESDEN-concept is welcoming a new partner whose headquarters are outside Dresden. This is made possible due to the particularly close relations between DRESDEN-concept institutions, including the joint appointments of the director as well as the doctoral students, almost all of whom are doing their PhD at TU Dresden. Moreover, KSI Meinsberg is involved in the Research Training Group “Supracolloidal Structures: from materials to optical and electronic devices“ (RTG 2767) of TU Dresden. As a non-profit state institute, KSI Meinsberg is responsible for conducting fundamental and application-oriented research in the fields of physical chemistry and electrochemistry, sensor technology and the associated development of novel sensor materials, scientificinstrumentation, as well as for training early-career researchers in the aforementioned fields. Our Principal Investigators Prof. Michaerl Mertig as well as Dr. Caroline Murawski represent the KSI within the RTG 2767.
DRESDEN-concept is the research alliance of TU Dresden and local extramural research and cultural institutions. A total of 36 partner institutions have joined forces in the association to bundle synergies and develop the science hub Dresden into a DRESDEN-concept Science and Innovation Campus.
The acronym DRESDEN stands for Dresden Research and Education Synergies for the Development of Excellence and Novelty and emphasizes the focus of the collaboration: by networking across the boundaries of institutions and subjects, DRESDEN-concept offers researchers an ideal place for science and innovation.
