iNAPO Workshop 2017


iNAPO for Sensors: Formation, Characterization and Modelling

The LOEWE Research Cluster iNAPO – ion conducting nanopores – is engaged in the construction of nanoscale sensors modeled after nature. The workshop will provide researchers from Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Electrical Engineering the opportunity to interdisciplinary present and discuss the latest research findings and describe emerging technologies and directions in nanopore research.

The workshop will take place on 8 – 9 June 2017 in Darmstadt in the Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Haus.

Getting to Darmstadt

By plane

The Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) is located 25 km (15.5 miles) from Darmstadt. At the airport, regional bus lines depart from arrivals area B at Terminal 1 and arrivals areas D+E at Terminal 2. We recommend the express bus AirLiner (Terminals 1 and 2), which offers a convenient and fast 30-minute connection from the airport to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main station), Luisenplatz and Darmstadtium Kongresszentrum/Convention Center. From the terminal station Darmstadtium Kongresszentrum/Convention Center the Welcome Hotel Darmstadt is only 100m away.

By train

ICE, IC and EC trains stop at Darmstadt Station, which means it is very well connected with the German distance railway network. Public transport from Darmstadt Station to the Welcome Hotel Darmstadt is available.

Getting to the Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Haus


Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Haus

Dieburger Straße 241

64287 Darmstadt

By car

You can reach Darmstadt using the A5 Autobahn (from Frankfurt/Main or Heidelberg/Basel) and the A67 Autobahn (from Cologne/Wiesbaden or Mannheim), which intersect 3 km to the west of the city at the intersection “Autobahnkreuz Darmstadt”. The TUD locations “Stadtmitte” (city center) and “Lichtwiese” are well marked within the entire city.

After leaving the Autobahn in the direction of Darmstadt, drive along the Rheinstrasse towards the city center (Stadtmitte) following the signs for “TU Stadtmitte”. Drive straight on into the Cityring-Tunnel. After bearing right as you enter the tunnel, exit the tunnel to the left on Hügelstrasse.

At the next light, turn left again on to Kirchstraße. Go straight through the next light and you will pass the Darmstadt castle (Schloss) on your left. At the next light, turn right on Alexanderstraße, which turns into Dieburger Straße further up the road. Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Haus is located on the right hand side of Dieburger Straße. The house number is 241.

By train

Darmstadt is an ICE-Station and stop for IC, EC and Interregio trains travelling north-south. Regionally Darmstadt is connected to the Frankfurt/Main-Heidelberg or Mannheim, Wiesbaden/Mainz-Aschaffenburg and Darmstadt-Erbach or Eberbach (Odenwald) lines.

To reach Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Haus, you can take Bus F from the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) to the bus stop “Fasanerie”. The bus stop is directly in front of the house. The Bus F stops also at the “Darmstadt castle (Schloss)” where the Welcome Hotel Darmstadt is located. The Bus F takes 8 minutes from “Darmstadt castle (Schloss)” to the bus stop “Fasanerie”.
