State-of-the-art research instruments allow completely new insights. They help to expand the boundaries of knowledge, which translates into cutting-edge international research. KiNSIS combines instruments and methods from more than 130 researchers at Kiel University and external partners on material design, experimental analytic, theory and modelling. This unique interdisciplinary range of laboratories and research platforms forms the basis for innovative research projects, the joint use of high-performance equipment and the strategic and sustainable further development of the infrastructure at Kiel University and in Schleswig-Holstein as a base for research.
The KiNSIS research focus promotes top-class equipment in the nano and surface sciences at Kiel University. It supports its members in accessing major research institutions from its partner network. Under certain conditions, methods and equipment are also available to research institutions and companies outside Kiel University, e.g. in cooperation with CAU Innovation GmbH.
