The research in the Biological Materials Laboratory of CSIR-CLRI focuses on exploitation of biological materials in synthesis of novel nanomaterial and their utilization for a range of application; from waste water management to biomedical science. The lab pursues a broad range of research interests that include biomimetics and bioinspired nanomaterial synthesis, understanding the fundamental mechanism of bioinspired nanomaterial synthesis, design of multi functional nanomaterials, utilization of bio and nanomaterials in pollution control management, and application of nanomaterials in catalysis, biosensing and biomedicine.
CMU-RC is a not-for-profit organization established to facilitate innovative research and development opportunities between the university and high technology companies. CMU-RC is dedicated to establishing and operating a national center of excellence in the research fields of business intelligence and nanoscale sciences.
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.
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 Graphene Centre at Chalmers gathers all of our research, education and innovation related to graphene under one common umbrella. Synergies between our multiple graphene projects can be identified, utilised and developed, at same time we create an environment that attracts researchers, students and cooperation partners. The centre is the obvious entry point to the Swedish network of graphene research and development, as well as to the EU?s research initiative on graphene - the Graphene Flagship.
The Linneqs environment is lead by a coordinator, Per Delsing, together with four project coordinators for the four different research areas, Vitaly Shumeiko (Qubits), Dag Winkler (Quantum Transport), Sergey Kubatkin (Graphene) and Eva Olsson (Enabling Technologies).
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.
