Lead partner: NTNU-IMA
Partners: NGU; SINTEF; NTNU-IGP

NTNU-IMA will take the responsibility to 

  1. employ and develop internal competence, knowledge and experience in doing research on and running a 3D APT setup by using available labs abroad,
  2. purchase and install the 3D APT, and build up the necessary competence to operate and maintain the instrument, 
  3. establish user-friendly support system also for external users and
  4. further develop scientific competence and carry out cutting edge research on the instrument.

The experimental node will be opened for public use, including the partners, as soon as it is operational.
