In Saxony-Anhalt, ideas for smart materials are not just copied from nature. They are usually rather inconspicuous and yet they have become indispensable for technological progress and our everyday lives: Smart Materials. Intelligent materials that adapt actively to changed environmental conditions. It is often the wonders of nature, such as the lotus effect, the gecko phenomenon and the fin ray effect, that provide researchers and developers with a model for innovative solutions and lead to the creation of high-tech materials.
Discovering solutions for the material requirements of the future is a further incentive for experts in an extremely wide range of branches of industry and research in the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt.
