DRESDEN-concept: Dresden Research and Education Synergies for the Development of Excellence and Novelty
DRESDEN-concept is an association of the TU Dresden and non-university partners from science and culture with the objective of making the excellence of Dresden-based research more visible. The partners develop and utilize synergies in the sectors research, education and training, infrastructure as well as administration. They coordinate their scientific strategy and identify fields in which Dresden is a global leader. The principal feasibility of magnetocaloric refrigeration is evident. However, the requirement of a large magnetic field hampers wide industrial and commercial applications. Interdisciplinary materials research whithin ths Ferroic Cooling Network shall overcome this obstacle.
MFD: Materialforschungsverbund Dresden e. V.
The MFD network initiates cooperations and demonstrates the additional value of scientific developments for economy and society since 1993. The members cover almost the entire range of material classes from metals, polymers, ceramics, natural and composite materials to coatings and alloys.
dresden|exists would like to set impulses for Dresden's founding culture. The aim is to encourage scientists to transfer their research results into economic practice in order to create new professional opportunities for themselves.
SAWLab Saxony combines the research activities and expertise of the IFW Dresden in the field of acoustoelectronics with competences and skills of local research institutes, universities and high-tech companies.
ENERGY SAXONY is a business-oriented energy technology network aiming to promote the sustainable development and commercialization of future cutting-edge technologies in the Energy, Mobility and ICT sector. The association has set itself the goal to leverage the innovation potential of Saxon companies and research institutes resulting in cooperative projects and practical applications for the benefit of society and to strengthen the State of Saxony as a pioneering and competitive business location for the energy industry.
Technologieförderverein Bautzen e. V.
In addition to the aim of the association to support science, research and development, the awareness and interest of young people in science, technology and innovation is also in the focus. The association supports activities and projects in the region.
UKRATOP is a Ukrainian-German Excellence Center funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research since 2018. The full name is "Topological order of electrons in solids: New materials, Phenomena & application Concepts". The aim is to design new high-quality materials with exceptional surface and edge conditions resulting from their topological nature. The topological stability of the exotic physical properties of these materials can be of tremendous interest to the next generation of information technology.
BIOREMIA: BIOfilm-REsistant Materials for hard tissue Implant Applications
BIOREMIA is a European Training Network funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions and coordinated by IFW Dresden. It will provide top-level multidisciplinary skills to 15 Early-Stage Researchers through an ambitious research and training programme in the area of biofilm-resistant materials for hard tissue implant applications.
TIPS stands for thermally-enabled, integrated smart photonics systems. The main objective of this EU network is the development of thermal management strategies for photonics. These strategies will facilitate future high-bandwidth optical communication. The proposed TIPS concept will involve the integration of photonics and optoelectronic designs with thermal management solutions to remove high heat fluxes.
Dresden - City of Science
"Dresden - City of Science" is a network of city, science and economy in Dresden. After initiating the cooperation, the City of Dresden founded the network in 2004. One of the network's projects is the »Long Night of the Sciences« during which colleges, research institutions, scientific enterprises, laboratories, lecture theatres and archives keep their doors open to the public.
