Published on in NEWS
On Monday, April 25, 2016 Prof. Xinliang Feng (cfaed Chair for Molecular Functional Materials) welcomed a delegation of 20 people from the Chinese Graphene Industrial Alliance (CGIA) in Dresden. A workshop on graphene and nanoscience was organized including the top scientific and industrial experts from TU Dresden, Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research Dresden (IPF), and Chinese representatives from industry and science. TUD’s vice-rector for research Prof. Gerhard Rödel held the welcoming speech and introduced the university to the guests from China.
During the workshop, Prof. Karl Leo (Chair for Optoelectronics) represented the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) and Institute for Applied Photophysics (IAPP) and Dr. Martin Lohe (Chair for Molecular Functional Materials) informed about the latest developments in graphene production. The delegation of the CGIA informed about their activities in regards to graphene commercialization. Since China has emerged to be a key player not only in terms of industrial aspects but also regarding the outstanding scientific development, the purpose of the workshop was to lay the foundations for the future cooperation between TU Dresden and China.
