Providing a full-service and open-access infrastructure for R&D in nanotechnology
NanoLabNL is a Dutch national facility for nanotechnology research. Since 2004 we have been offering the use of our facilities and expertise to universities, research institutes, start-ups and industry on 4 locations in the Netherlands (Delft, Eindhoven, Groningen and Twente).
Our mission: To provide a full-service and open-access infrastructure for R&D in nanotechnology. We support scientists in their research and businesses in improving or renewing their products and production processes and/or developing new products.
