Nanotechnology Research - Initiatives and Networks
Showing results 1 - 6 of 6 of initiatives and networks in Norway:
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 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.
