The main goal of this network is to deal with the potential of miniaturized electronic and photonic THz circuits for communication, localization, material characterization, medical technology and environmental monitoring. The gap between basic research and innovation-driven economic development should be closed.

The following partners are involved in this network, which is funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia: the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR in Wachtberg with the consortium leadership, the University of Bochum with 12 chairs from 4 faculties, the University of Wuppertal, the University of Duisburg-Essen, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems (IMS) in Duisburg.

Project duration: 01.08.2022 - 31.07.2026
