The Master of Nanoscale Engineering offers you the opportunity to explore this challenging field in a stimulating scientific and cultural environment. The program is dedicated to a multidisciplinary and international approach and it is suited equally well for students planning an academic or an industrial career. The two-year curriculum provides both the theoretical basis and the practical expertise in all fields related to the fabrication, the characterization and the design of nanoscale structures and systems.
Three European universities - Grenoble INP, Politecnico di Torino and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne - have set up a joint 'Master's Degree in Micro and Nanotechnology for Integrated Systems'. This is a versatile degree course, given primarily in English and dedicated to micro and nanotechnology. It relies on the complementary skills of these three leading European universities, in training and research in the sphere of micro and nanotechnology.
A 'competitiveness cluster' that brings together major corporations, small and mid-sized businesses, government agencies, and organizations from the public and private sectors to develop a unique hybrid of micro- and nanotechnologies and embedded software.
A French site (in French) on nanomaterials and risks, maintained by the Ecrin Association, a nonprofit organization that is the offspring of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique (CEA). The letters E.C.R.I.N. stand for 'Exchange and Collaboration Research-Industry'.
Nanostrand's overall goal is to roadmap future European standardisation activities for nanotechnology which relate to pre-normative research work in order to support European organisations to play an active role in worldwide development of nanotechnology standards.
In March 2007, the OECD's Committee on Scientific and Technological Policy (CSTP) established a Working Party on Nanotechnology. The objective of this Working Party is to promote international co-operation that facilitates research, development, and responsible commercialisation of nanotechnology in member countries and in non-member economies.
The scientific goal of the EUROCORES Program SONS is to develop cross-disciplinary research at the interface between Chemistry, Materials Science, Nanoscience, Physics and Electrical Engineering. This research program concerns the utilization of supramolecular interactions for the synthesis and positioning of functional assemblies, macromolecules, dendrimers, liquid crystals, tailor-made polymers and inorganic nanoparticles.
