Objectives and Activities

The Erwin Schrödinger Society for Nanosciences was founded in 1986 with its original name "Erwin Schrödinger Society for Microsciences". It is a unique community of researchers, sponsors and idealists in Austria, who actively contribute to the propagation of knowledge and technology in the field of nanoscience. With the establishment of Erwin Schrödinger Institutes, the society promotes internationally recognised pioneering work in current fields of research.
By exploration of structures in the nanometer scale (10-9 m), nanoscience and nanotechnology are expected to drive the development of new nanostructured materials as well as systems for biotechnology and information technology. This requires the development of new tools and processes that operate on a nanometer scale and pave the way for this new technology in the world of atoms and molecules. The obtained know-how will result in novel products that are optimised by nanotechnology.
