The BioNanoNet Forschungsgesellschaft mbH (BNN) is a non-profit research organization owned by the BioNanoNet Association that counts nearly 70 member organizations belonging to various fields such as Health & Safety, Data & Sustainability and Enabling Technologies. BNN’s mission is to support and guide its members and customers towards a sustainable development of connected technologies with the vision to shape the European high-tech ecosystem to secure a sustainable and prosperous society.
