Nano@NTNU

Nano@NTNU is an overall, strategic initiative with the objective to coordinate and promote research within nanotechnology, nanoscience and functional materials at NTNU.

Research at the nanolevel is by virtue most often cross disciplinary. Thus, Nano@NTNU seeks to assist the initiation of cross disciplinary projects and proposals by creating relevant meeting arenas for scientists at different departments and faculties at NTNU. You may learn more about the research at NTNU within nanotechnology, nanoscience and functional materials here.

Our cleanroom, NTNU NanoLab, is part of the initiative Nano@NTNU. The facility NanoLab has its own staff and director, Dr. Kay Gastinger. NTNU NanoLab is an open access, hands-on facility for students and researchers. It is also the leader of the national infrastructure "Norwegian Micro- and Nanofabrication Facility", NorFab.  More information about NTNU NanoLab can be found here.

The fourth NorFab Nano-Matchmaking Seminar took place in Trondheim, June 2nd 2015.

In an attempt to promote collaboration, representatives from Norwegian industry and academia were invited to a one-day seminar at Scandic Hotel Lerkendal.

The seminar gathered 53 participants, representing 11 companies, 4 institutes as well as the Research Council of Norway (RCN), UiO, UiB, HBV and NTNU. Aase Marie Hundere(RCN) opened the seminar by presenting the funding opportunities for collaborations between academia and industry. Other participants then followed up with 28 short presentations describing their competence and which expertise they were seeking. In addition, the study program in nanotechnology at NTNU was presented. Most importantly, there was ample time for mingling, discussions and matchmaking.
