Today the Federal Research Minister Annette Schavan visited the Center for Nanotechnology (CeNTech) in Münster. For the minister the stopover at the CeNTech was of a particular importance as it had been her ministry that gave the starting signal for the foundation of CeNTech in the year 2000.The Center was opened in 2003 and employs about 100 people who contribute to the optimization of the transfer and exchange between nanotechnological science and industry. Until today the CeNTech has developed into a research center of excellence that is known beyond the federal borders.
