The Centre de Compétences Nanosciences Nord Ouest (C’nano Nord Ouest) gathers laboratories from Nord-Pas de Calais, Picardie, Basse-Normandie, Haute-Normandie, Bretagne, Pays de la Loire and Poitou-Charentes regions.
The ongoing research programmes at the CCMB are in three major categories - high quality basic research in the frontier areas of modern biology, research relevant to societal needs, and application-oriented research towards commercialisation.
CKMNT has been set up by the International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials (ARCI), an autonomous grants-in-aid institute of Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, with partial financial assistance from the DSTís Nano Mission. The centre aims to offer comprehensive one-stop nanoscience and technology information services to researchers, industries, policy makers, venture capitalists and funding agencies and would help in fulfilling the objectives of the Nano Mission.
The Centre for NanoBioSafety and Sustainability (CNBSS) was established in 2009 as a joint initiative of the Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology (ICN) and the LEITAT Technological Centre, two well-known institutions in nanoscience and nanotechnology, both located in Catalonia (northeastern Spain). The Centre was created in response to the emerging needs to rationalise and assess the risks of new nanotechnologies.
The specific thematic objectives of the Centre are enhancement of the research potential in the field of advanced structural and functional materials and development of highly specialized techniques of investigation to obtain information on properties of materials and their behavior in service conditions.
CSEM's expertise in nanotechnology focuses on characterization, optics, microscopy, and surface engineering. The combination of these technologies with other ones such as microfluidics, microsystems, photonic optics and micro-optics makes CSEM able to integrate successfully nanotechnology to novel products.
The CNM-IMB has established a new R&D activity focussed on the integration of microelectronics with nanotechnology, which includes nanolithography, combination of nanodevices with CMOS circuits and development of nanoelectromechanical systems.

The research at BioNano Systems Laboratory focuses on nanoscale materials, device structures and components based on silicon materials, circuits and microsystems including molecular and biological elements.
The Master's Programme in Nanotechnology is tailored to students aiming at international careers in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, both regarding the fundamentals of nanoscience and how to design and build components on the nanoscale.
The programme is intended for students aiming at a career in the area of materials science, which is a very broad field both scientifically and technologically. Scientists who work in industry or at universities and engineers who work in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental materials development to application of materials technology to products and processes.
Large efforts, experimental as well as theoretical, are directed at materials, devices and subsystems for future micro/nanoelectronics in the fields of microwave electronics, quantum devices, photonics, micro- and nanosystems, superconducting devices and circuits and molecular electronics just to mention a few.
The Nanofabrication Laboratory is a world-class university cleanroom for research into and fabrication of micro and nano technology. The laboratory is run by the department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers, but is an open user facility for external as well as internal academic and industrial interests.
Charged Particle Nanotech is an Integrated Project in the European Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), research priority NMP ('Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences, knowledge-based Multifunctional Materials, and new Production Processes and Devices'). CHARPAN is driven by industrial needs for new efficient production technologies for the fabrication of complex 2D and 3D surface structures necessary in numerous nanotechnology devices such as templates for nanoimprint applications.
chem2biz is a joint initiative by the TechnologieZentrum Ludwigshafen am Rhein GmbH (TZL) and BASF Aktiengesellschaft. Company founders and companies from the chemistry-based sectors of chemistry, nanotechnology, new materials, bio-technology and process and analytical technology can call on a modularly-structured full-service offering during the start-up and growth phases of their business.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Chemnitz University of Technology offers a new, 4-semester international master's programme in Micro and Nano Systems. The programme provides world-class, future-oriented education in design, manufacturing, characterization and integration of miniaturized components into engineering systems.
The center has been established at the institute of physics of the Chemnitz University of technology to concentrate and coordinate the activities of several research groups in the field of design and analytics of materials, especially organic/inorganic hybrid materials on the nanometer scale.
