Established Functional Nano-Materials Cooperation
After having identified a variety of core competences of the attendees of the 1st Sino-German Symposium Functional Nano-Materials Sciences in Hangzhou (FNMS-2018), the recently forged and similarly-named Sino-German Cooperation Group aims at the establishment of a platform for fruitful collaborations in the field of functional nano-materials sciences research. The initiators and the members of the Cooperation Group wished to make efficient use of the experience obtained through joint research endeavors prior to the formation of this FNMS-COOP Group in order to expand cooperative work in the field of nanophysics and materials sciences. In this newly set frame, the partnering groups envisioned to build on the friendship and mutual trust formed between the project-supported group leaders and institutes in both countries for the establishment of a strong team in the domains of, both, fundamental and applied research on functionalized nano-materials and optoelectronic devices thereof – with the aim of exploring 2D-system photodetectors and sensors among others. The groups involved are characterized by their complementary expertise and methodology. The two co-chairs of the FNMS-COOP Sino-German Cooperation Group also acted and continue to act as program chairs for the Sino-German Symposia series on Functional Nano-Materials Sciences, the first of which (FNMS-2018) was successfully carried out in Hangzhou 2018.
