Laboratories and infrastructure

NTNU Nanolab

NTNU has many large and small laboratories, and infrastructure. Most of the laboratories and infrastructure are used in teaching as well as research. Many laboratories and infrastructure are national resources. NTNU and SINTEF have a formal agreement to jointly operate several of the laboratories.

Business and others can buy laboratory services. You are welcome to contact the individual laboratory, or the faculty.
