You can find us at NETZ

The NETZ is part of the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CENIDE). Physicists, chemists, and engineers research new materials for energy applications and develop scalable processes for their production and processing.


After a large-scale cyberattack, the digital infrastructure of the UDE is currently being rebuilt. Until all systems are restored, important information as well as contact details for CENIDE including NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum (NETZ) and Interdisciplinary Center for Analytics on the Nanoscale (ICAN) are provided on this temporary website.
