The IHRS NanoNet was funded by the Initiative and Networking Fund of the Helmholtz Association (VH-KO-606) until Dec 2020.


The International Helmholtz Research School (IHRS) NanoNet is an international, interdisciplinary, and thematically focused doctoral program hosted by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and supported by the German Helmholtz Association. The project is a joint collaboration with partner institutions in Dresden: the Technische Universität Dresden, the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (IPF), the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS), and the Nanoelectronics Materials Laboratory gGmbH (NaMLab).

The IHRS NanoNet aims at attracting and promoting excellence in the field of molecular and nanometer-scale electronics by educating selected doctoral candidates with backgrounds in physics, chemistry, materials science, and electrical engineering. During a period of 3 years PhD candidates benefit from well-structured, comprehensive training curricula and multiple mentorship, while performing cutting edge research projects within one of the 16 NanoNet research groups. Under the supervision of highly experienced and interdisciplinary outstanding scientists leading the field of nanoelectronics, the doctoral candidates have the unique opportunity to contribute to the advancement of molecular electronics by developing strategies for the real integration of single nanosized building blocks into large interconnected networks.

The IHRS NanoNet fosters not only professional qualification but also personal development by equipping young graduates with competencies for successful careers in a wide variety of positions in science and industry. The training program of the research school invests on professional competencies, such as the capability to work across disciplines and cultures by promoting networking and the exchange of ideas and knowledge with fellows, mentors and collaboration partners in Dresden, Germany and abroad. The cooperation with international scientific and industrial partners complements and broadens the expertise of the IHRS NanoNet by establishing a unique research and training network for the doctoral candidates.
