 Competencies

 Central aim of organisation
From Smart Sensors to Systems Integration

 Briefly describe your organisation
A non-academic and application-oriented research centre, CTR sees itself as a link between science and industry. The research centre for SMART SENSORS AND SYSTEMS INTEGRATION thus conducts research for industrial enterprises in a wide range of sectors.

MISSION - From Smart Sensors to Systems Integration
CTR’s task and objective is to develop innovative sensor technologies (primarily photonic, sensor, micro and nano systems) for industry and to integrate them in concrete applications. This will make products and processes more accurate, safer and more efficient. CTR research will therefore play a role in meeting society’s great challenges, such as energy, mobility, health, climate and security.
