The ongoing miniaturisation and the increasing demands on the functionalities of microsystems generate an urgent need for innovative approaches to control, for example, mechanics, optics or fluidics on a micrometer scale. The objectives of the interdisciplinary Priority Programme “Cooperative Multilevel Multistable Micro Actuator Systems (KOMMMA)” are to demonstrate new theoretically founded concepts to understand the complex coupling and synergy effects in cooperative microactuator systems as well as novel methods for the design, fabrication and control of cooperative and/or multistage microactuator systems. The programme is designed to run for six years.
- Proposals for the first three-year funding period have to be submitted no later than 14 November 2018.
