CeMOS research center links device and application development

The members of the centre can be found here.

The internet presence of the Center is still under construction.

The aim of CeMOS is to generate synergies between mass spectrometry and optical instrument development (measuring instruments as well as image and signal analysis) in order to create new starting points for application-oriented projects with cooperation partners from industry and academia.

Mass spectrometry and optical metrology have become indispensable tools in industrial research, development and production as well as in academic application-oriented basic research.

CeMOS bundles the activities of the two research groups with the most third party funding at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences, which together with around 50 people are mainly active in the research areas of "Medical Biotechnology/Medical Technology" and "Intelligent Sensor Technology".

With this interdisciplinary approach, the university is reacting to the rapid technological development and increasing digitalisation in these industrial fields and research areas.

CeMOS already conducts intensive research with academic and industrial partners (BMWi, BMBF, EU, MWK; average annual third party funding over the last five years was approx. 2.5 million euros) and actively transfers technology to industry.

The intensive networking with around one hundred industrial partners, the University Hospital Mannheim and the associations such as the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region, the Mannheim City Economic Development Agency, the "Smart Production" network, the Life Science Cluster Rhine-Main-Neckar (BioRN) and the Rhine-Neckar Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) helps to achieve this.

In currently >20 cooperative doctorates with the University of Heidelberg, TU Braunschweig, KU Leuven (Belgium), TU Berlin and the KIT, CeMOS trains industry-oriented young scientists and potential managers.
