Nano Øresund aims at bringing together nanotechnology strengths in innovation, education, research and laboratory infrastructure on the Danish and Swedish sides of Øresund, to bring out the full potential of the region in this field. A primary objective is to provide the base for all aspects of nanotechnological co-operation in the region, where academia and industry participate, and also to communicate Øresund's capacity in these terms internationally.
IVA is running this project for a period of 12 to 18 months to gather Swedish expertise and players interested in developing Swedish nanotechnology. The project's main purpose is to produce informational materials, formulate a long-term strategy and to prepare a plan for an innovation system within the nano field.
SwedNanoTech is Sweden’s first umbrella organization for the Swedish nanotechnology actors. The association was formed in 2010 to profile Sweden as a prominent nanotechnology country in research and products, but also as a land of investment opportunities.
