CeNTech Science Breakfast

Once again the traditional CeNTech Science Breakfast provided insights into current research activities within the science park and a valuable exchange of the stakeholders. The program included presentations on the production of natural rubber from dandelions, performed by Prof. Dirk Prüfer, innovative approaches in battery electrode research (Cabot Corporation), the application of simulated Raman microscopy in histology (Refined Laser Systems GmbH), the hydrogen cluster Münster and the activities of the SFB 1459 "intelligent matter".

First German-Dutch MedTech networking workshop in Münster

The first German-Dutch cross border MedTech networking event took place at the IHK Nord Westfalen. The workshop was organized by CeNTech and Bioanalytik Münster e.V. with the support of the Wirtschaftsförderung Münster GmbH. Healthcare professionals from the University Medical Center Muenster talked about clinic challenges/needs and upcoming project ideas for obvious existing medical/clinical needs. As the current challenges are similar in both regions - Münster-Land and the Twente region - companies and healthcare professionals discussed how to connect both regions in a better way and how to learn from each other. Furthermore the optimization of the transfer of tech innovation into clinics was addressed.

NATURE Publication: Polymers of ballbot-type carbenes

A team of scientists from the departments of chemistry and physics at the WWU Münster and researchers from Beijing used on-surface synthesis under extremely clean and defined conditions to realize the polymerization of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs). The NHC units of these polymers are each connected to single gold atoms, which drastically increases their mobility on the different substrates (similar to a ballbot, i.e. a robot moving on a sphere). The detailed properties of the polymers were investigated by ultrahigh-resolution atomic force microscopy in the CeNTech labs. The study was recently published in Nature Chemistry (2023).

Special awards for high school researchers in physics and biology

Respect for the outstanding achievements: The CeNTech GmbH and the Gesellschaft für Bioanalytik Münster e.V. awarded special prizes to two outstanding research projects in connection with the´IHK regional competition for young researchers´. The award recognizes the contribution to this years IHK regional competition in the fields of biology and physics. The CeNTech GmbH had the pleasure of presenting Marvin and Robin Partanen from the St. Mauritz Gymnasium with the special prize in physics. The two brothers measured and mathematically calculated the forces of attraction and repulsion of interacting magnets.

A successful CeNTech concept: Interdisciplinarity

Since the beginning in 2003, CeNTech has been committed to interdisciplinarity. One of the initiators of the CeNTech idea and director of the CeNTech, Prof. Harald Fuchs is a pioneer of the interlocking of the departments of physics and chemistry at Münster University. Together with his colleagues PD Dr. Harry Mönig and PD Dr. Saeed Amirjalayer, their research at the boundaries of physics and chemistry is featured by the WWU dossier "Connected & Interdisciplinary" and the WWU newspaper wissen/leben.

MedTech - cross-border initiatives and chances

A Dutch/German workshop was organized by the Münster Economic Development Agency (WFM) on April 25. The Münster as well as the Oost NL region both have significant expertise in the MedTech sector. At the same time the health systems on both sides face major challenges. 17 experts discussed which initiatives or ideas can be taken up or scaled up together, and how big challenges can be tackled together. The high-ranking experts from both countries agreed on one thing: Münster and Twente are growth and innovation drivers for medical Technology. Further projects will follow soon.
