The Norwegian Centre for Transmission Electron Microscopy (NORTEM) is a large scale infrastructure project supported by the The Research Council of Norway and the three partners, NTNU, SINTEF and UiO, for investing in and running TEM infrastructure in Norway. The project has two nodes. The Trondheim node will have three TEMs from JEOL and the Oslo node two TEMs from FEI and JEOL. All instruments will be operative by the end of 2013. The official opening of NORTEM will take place in Oslo early 2014.
