A non-profit organization, IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology. The IEEE name was originally an acronym for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. Today, the organization's scope of interest has expanded into so many related fields, that it is simply referred to by the letters I-E-E-E.
The IEEE Nanotechnology Council is a multi-disciplinary group whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Nanotechnology carried out throughout the IEEE in scientific, literary and educational areas. The Council supports the theory, design, and development of nanotechnology and its scientific, engineering, and industrial applications.
The IMDEA Nanociencia Foundation, created by a joint initiative of the regional Government of Madrid and the Ministry of Science and Education of the Government of Spain, manages the IMDEA Nanociencia Institute. This new interdisciplinary research centre aims at becoming a flexible framework to create new internationally competitive research groups by hybridizing some of the best scientists in Madrid dedicated to the exploration of basic nanoscience with recognized researches recognized elsewhere recruited on an internationally competitive basis.
IMEC (Interuniversity MicroElectronics Centre) is Europe's leading independent research center in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics, nanotechnology, enabling design methods and technologies for ICT systems. Its research focuses on the next generations of chips and systems, and on the enabling technologies for ambient intelligence.
This website had been specifically developed to deliver the findings of two European Nanotechnologies Projects funded by the European Commission' Sixth Framework Programme, under priority 3: Nanotechnology and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional materials and new production processes and devices (NMP). The complimentary activities of these projects has meant they are now co-ordinated as cluster project delivering the findings through a single dissemination channel.
Combining interdisciplinary teaching with cutting edge research, this flagship course will train the next generation of nanotechnologists. The course is associated with the London Centre for Nanotechnology, a joint venture between Imperial College London and UCL, allowing a wider choice of collaborative opportunities.
The main research topics are: Nanomagnetic Logic Devices; Nanoscale Hall-probe Devices; Technology for Preventing Forgery; Smart Nanoparticles for Targeted Cancer Treatment; Fundamental Properties of Nanoscale Magnetism.
Nanomaterials and nanostructures, with main areas of expertise: silicon nanoelectrode arrays, low-frequency noise in nanostructured materials; porous silicon layers; field emission nanostructures; biofunctional nanostructures and interfaces.
The Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) was established in 2010 to pursue interdisciplinary research across several disciplines with a focus on nanoscale systems. Current research topics include, but are not limited to nanoelectronics, MEMS/NEMS, nanomaterials and devices, photonics, nano-biotechnology, solar cells and computational nano-engineering.
The Centre of Excellence in Nanoelectronics (CEN) at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) focuses on research and education in the areas of nano-scale electronics, devices, technologies, materials, micro and nanoelectromechanical systems, bio-electronic interfaces, and integrated small-scale systems. The Center runs a multidisciplinary research program involving more than 40 faculty members from various departments of engineering and basic science.
IIT Bombay has recently consolidated its Nanotechnology research activities through the formation of a Centre for Research in Nanotechnology & Science (CRNTS).This is a joint project between the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to create Centres of Excellence in Nanoelectronics.
The scope of ITRI Nanotechnology covers aspects in electronics, data storage, packaging, energy, display, photonics, biotechnology, platform technology, application in traditional industries, and facilities built-up.
InfoNano is the central federal information platform for nanotechnology in Switzerland. The Federal Offices of Public Health, for the Environment and for Agriculture, the Commission for Technology and Innovation, Swissmedic and the State Secretariats for Economic Affairs as well as for Education and Research are involved in the website.
InForm is a network of institutions funded through FP7 Theme 4: Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies to promote discussions in the field of nanotechnologies and nanoscale in formulations.
The overall aim of the initiative is to establish a key market for the technology of carbon nanotubes in Germany, which will serve as a global leader in the field of innovative carbon nanomaterials. For this purpose, a large group of around 80 expert partners from industry and science have joined forces to form a strong, interdisciplinary innovation alliance known as Inno.CNT.
