The researchers in CENIDE form an interdisciplinary network of creative minds that fosters collaboration across disciplines, bridging the gap between fundamental academic research and industrial implementation.

CENIDE coordinates and promotes the advancement of science in chemistry, physics, engineering, biology, and medicine with focus on:

  • Catalysis
  • Dynamic processes in solids
  • Gas-phase synthesis of nanomaterials
  • Magnetic materials
  • Nanomaterials for health
  • Functional materials for energy applications

CENIDE provides access to state-of-the-art infrastructure such as the unique research building NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum (NETZ) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Analytics on the Nanoscale (ICAN). CENIDE supports the creation and management of collaborative research activities for its members and partners from academia and industry. The stimulating research environment attracts high potentials and provides students and junior scientists with an ideal basis for further development.


The Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CENIDE) is internationally recognized for its cutting-edge materials research and development: Integrating the fundamental understanding on the nanoscale to create new sustainable solutions for major societal challenges in the fields of energy, information technology, and health.​
