An organization dedicated to the promotion of Nanotribology
ISO Committee TC 229 addresses standardization in the field of nanotechnologies. Specific tasks include developing standards for: terminology and nomenclature; metrology and instrumentation, including specifications for reference materials; test methodologies; modelling and simulations; and science-based health, safety, and environmental practices.
Nano Cluster Bodensee is a nanotechnology interest group in the economic area around Lake Constance.
Nano-Tera is a Swiss federal program funding scientific projects. The Nano-Tera initiative aims to bring Switzerland to the forefront of a new technological revolution, using engineering and information technology to improve the health and security of humans and the environment in the 21st century.
The main objectives of the NanoMesh project are to understand the self-assembly processes leading to this highly interesting and non-trivial nanostructure, to find routes for controlling the mesh parameters and for mass production, and to demonstrate its prospects for future applications as a oxygen- and carbon-free template for the production of nanocatalysts, nanomagnets and for functionalized surfaces.
This interdisciplinary center has been striving to become an internationally recognized hub for paradigm-shifting research, innovation, and education in the domain of 'smart' materials whose function and design are inspired by nature. Transcending traditional disciplines, the center integrates the research activities of 15 research groups from the University of Fribourg?s Adolphe Merkle Institute, its departments of chemistry, medicine, and physics, and partners at the University of Geneva and the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) and Lausanne (EPFL).
The aim of the ESF program 'Nanotribology (NATRIBO)' is to improve the collaborations between experimentalists and theoreticians in the field of tribology on the nanometer scale.
A Swiss-based laboratory for micro and nanotechnology.
The RADSAS project aims at developing efficient strategies for parallel, two-dimensional molecular self-assembly on surfaces, which we consider an indispensable prerequisite for the technical realization of supra-molecular design and engineering.
As the materials research institute in the ETH-domain, Empa is most certainly active in nanotechnology and is generating new knowledge, new materials and new applications and is transferring this knowhow to potential users.
