On 17th September 2013 about 50 scientists and entrepreneurs from the Baltic Sea region attended the Technet_nano workshop in Kaunas, Lithuania. They discussed the state of the art research and technology transfer in the field of micro- and nanotechnology in advanced sensor technologies and also to promote collaboration between SMEs and research institutions.

Participants were from Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. A number of SMEs was represented as Altechna R&D Ltd., JSC “Brolis Semiconductors”, JSC “Elinta”, Teravil Ltd, Solutions and Handling SH GmbH, JSC “Accel Elektronika”, JSC “Energenas” and JSC “Grida”. They all gave presentations on the activities performed and possible cooperation within the Technet_nano network.

Horst-Günter Rubahn, lead partner of Technet_nano, invited the companies to visit the cleanroom facilities of the project partners. He sees common interests and new collaboration activities.

Host, Sigitas Tamulevičius, project partner from Kaunas University of Technology, presented activities of the Institute of Materials Science. He invited companies to generate common ideas for collaboration which could be realised by employing knowledge and technologies in the newly built cleanrooms. The entrepreneurs showed femtosecond laser applications in sensor technologies (Tadas Kildušis, Altechna R&D Ltd), progress in laser diode technologies for sensing, security and medical applications (Augustinas Vizbaras, JSC “Brolis Semiconductors”), etc. Almantas Danilevičius, the representative from Centre of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, drawed future activities of „Santaka“ valley in cooperation between science and business.
