The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is providing around 2.5 million euros in funding for the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment. The grant is part of BMBF funding in the "Change through Innovation in the Region - WIR!" program, which also includes the Alliance Vogtlandpioniere.
10 years ak-adp
The second anniversary of the year. User Forum Atmospheric Pressure Plasma was founded 10 years ago. Since then, there have been more than 30 workshops at which technology developers, users and plant engineers have been able to exchange ideas about atmospheric plasmas in an animated manner. Even though the ak-adp has been around for a long time, the interest in the events and the technology remains high. That is why a technology special on atmospheric plasmas was published for the 10th anniversary.
Inauguration of new synthesis laboratory
In order to carry out sophisticated syntheses up to the kilogram range INNOVENT has established a new synthesis laboratory. Mr. Christian Hirte, Commissioner for Eastern Germany of the Federal Government (CDU), was invited to the inauguration as guest of honor.
Project "KulturLebensraum Vogtland" is launched
INNOVENT launches the WIR! (Change through Innovation in the Region) program "KulturLebensraum Vogtland". The aim is to develop innovative technologies, processes and methods for the preservation and revitalization of buildings worthy of protection. The focus of this regional network is on the Vogtland region.
Founding of the Zuse - Gemeinschaft
INNOVENT is a founding member of the German Industrial Research Association Konrad Zuse (short Zuse - Gemeinschaft). The aim of the Zuse - Gemeinschaft is the promotion of non-profit industrial research.
The ThGOT are going on tour
In September, the Thuringian Interfacial Engineering and Surface Days will be held outside Thuringia for the first time. The destination of the 8th ThGOT is Leipzig. In the course of this change also the name will be renewed. The Thuringian Interfacial Engineering and Surface Technology Days will become the Theme Days on Interfacial Engineering and Surface Technology.
New event format
In 2008, during the Thuringian Interface Engineering and Surface Days, there was a request for an exchange platform on the topic of atmospheric pressure plasma. This was the initial spark for the foundation of the "User Forum Atmospheric Pressure Plasma" (ak-adp). The founding workshop took place on March 12 in Jena.
Spin-off number four
Foundation of the Matesy GmbH. The company focuses mainly on the visualization, characterization and generation of magnetic fields.
The SURA Instruments GmbH is founded. Its main task is the production of machines and materials for surface pretreatment and activation.
