The NSF-sponsored Materials Research Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin – Madison (UW MRSEC) is focused on the fundamental study of the structure and properties of interfaces at the nanoscale level of atoms and molecules. It is doing so across a wide array of materials platforms, from inorganic semiconducting materials to liquid crystals with engineered defects.
Current research areas include (1) relationship among morphology, size, reactivity and stability of nano-crystals; (2) nanoporous structures and pore surface properties in geological systems; (3) geochemical reactions (with focus on sorption, desorption, precipitation, dissolution, and replacement reactions) in the nanoporous environments; and (4) self-assembled nano-structures in the earth systems.
The National Science Foundation established the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin - Madison to explore the self-assembly of complex materials and building blocks at the nanoscale and develop the means of communicating advances in nanotechnology to the public.
Aiming to explore the science of nanomaterials having an electron or charge transfer functionality; to prepare such nanomaterials, study and develop theories for their behaviour, and exploit these new behaviours in useful applications.
The Bachelor of Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary degree which is jointly offered by the Faculties of Engineering and Science. The degree targets the emerging field of nano-materials, molecular machines and nano-science. The course draws on major research strengths at UOW including: the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials, the BlueScope Steel Metallurgy Centre and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science.
The thrust of the institute's activities to date has been to develop more processable Inherently Conducting Polymers and to integrate these functional materials with other host structures with desirable mechanical properties.
The Modeling in Nanotechnology programs studies is developing the mathematical tools and techniques needed to model nano-scale engineering and design, including nanofluids and nanomedicine. The program seeks to understand the behaviour of nanoparticles, particularly Carbon and Boron Nitride particles, and of nanofluids.
Due to their unique characteristics, nanomaterials are being explored in a variety of fields for their applications. The research group has been developing nanomaterials for a number of applications including sorbents, catalysts, and membranes, which are increasingly used as the tools for clean energy productions.

This official Master from Zaragoza University (Spain) has a duration of 18 months and comprises 75 ECTS credits. The course is suitable for graduates with science, engineering, medicine or related degrees keen to develop careers at the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The course is multidisciplinary and aims to provide students with fundamental knowledge, practical experience, and skills in the fabrication and characterization of nanostructured materials and devices with applications in key areas of nanochemistry, nanophysics, and nanobiomedicine.
The common thread linking the group's research areas is the use of nanoporous interfaces, in a multiplicity of shapes and textures. The group is interested in methods that allow them to develop and control porous structures, and to deploy these structures on a variety of surfaces and environments; they also try to find applications in which nanoporous structures can be employed to modify the performance of different types of devices.
The three objectives of CNST are: 1) To create a center of research excellence in the field of nano science and technology 2) To establish core facilities and common labs to serve researchers in UST and other institutions in Taiwan and 3) To promote Taiwan's nanotechnology through education, research, training courses, and collaborative research with high tech industries.
Nanotechnology has both applications and implications for the environment. EPA is supporting research in this technology while evaluating its regulatory responsibility to protect the environment and human health. This site highlights EPA's research in nanotechnology and provides useful information on related research at EPA and in other organizations.
The US Food and Drug Administration regulates a wide range of products, including foods, cosmetics, drugs, devices, and veterinary products, some of which may utilize nanotechnology or contain nanomaterials.
Strategic Research Areas are: To achieve dramatic, innovative enhancements in the properties and performance of structures, materials, and devices that have controllable features on the nanometer scale.
Nanotechnology Centre (CNT) as a successor of Institute of Materials Chemistry (IMACH) was established 2/1/2007. Establishment of the CNT reflects the changes in research and development activities of the IMACH which became strongly focused on the different fields of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology. Establishment of the CNT reflects also accreditation and start of the new study program Nanotechnology at our University.
The Valencia Nanophotonics Technology Center (NTC) is a research center whose mission is to exert the leadership in Europe in the micro/nanofabrication of structures on silicon, as a key support for the development of nanotechnology and nanoscience, specially towards their applications in photonics: in the areas of optical fiber networks and systems, biophotonics, defence, security, photonic computation, etc.
