FUNMAT is a newly established national consortium for research within functional materials and nanotechnology and has four senior partners: The University of Oslo; Norwegian University for Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim; SINTEF, Trondheim and Oslo; Institute for Energy Technology (IFE).
The Norwegian PhD Network on Nanotechnology for Microsystems has been established to coordinate, integrate, and strengthen PhD programmes in the field of nanotechnology and microsystems in Norway. Drawing on the strengths of the participating institutions, the objective is to facilitate an expansion in scope and depth of the research training in this field nationwide.
This multi-disciplinary research program develops novel material solutions for use in advanced wound healing based on nanofibrillated cellulose structures.
The aim of this Research Council of Norway initiative within nanotechnology and materials technology is to enforce basic knowledge in order to pave the way for new knowledge-based and research-intensive industry, and provide a sustainable revitalisation of established Norwegian industry.
NanoTEST is a collaborative research project which is funded under the EU Seventh Framework Programme for Health 2007. The project brings together a team of lead scientists in Europe, and the overall aim is to develop alternative testing strategies and high-throughput toxicity testing protocols using in vitro and in silico methods essential for the risk assessment of nanoparticles used in medical diagnostics.
The Norwegian NanoMedicine Network is an initiative aiming to gather the main Norwegian players in research, industry and public administration within the nanomedicine field.
The 5-year programme is supported on a solid foundation of courses within physics, chemistry and mathematics. These are combined with courses in electronics and materials science that are oriented towards technology to give a good grounding for further studies in nanotechnology. The programme provides the theoretical basis and knowledge of experimental methods and technological applications of nanotechnology. The social implications of nanotechnology pertaining to ethical and environmental issues are also addressed. The first two years are common for all students in the programme. In the last three years, students choose their main profile from key areas relating to research, business and industry.
The aim of NTNU NanoLab is to establish a cross-disciplinary research environment for researchers within the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering, materials technology and medical research.
The aim of SafeNano Norway is to create a self-sustaining national network for industry and scientists to develop safe nanotechnology and increase public confidence in nanoproducts.
NMNL (Norwegian Micro and Nano Laboratories) is the research infrastructure in Norway hosted by SINTEF, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Oslo (UiO).
