Providing a full-service and open-access infrastructure for R&D in nanotechnology

NanoLabNL is the Dutch national facility for nanotechnological research. It has open access and can be used by scientists and businesses. It has 5 locations in the Netherlands: Twente, Delft, Eindhoven, Groningen and Amsterdam. It supports scientists at their research and supports businesses at improving or renewing their products/production process and/or developing new products. Finally, it wants to contribute to reinforcing the Netherlands as a knowledge based economy.

Since 2004, NanoLabNL is a valued and valuable national nanotechnology infrastructure. The decision to make use of only a limited number of research laboratories and to make them accessible to all researchers, both public as well as private, has proven extremely effective. NanoLabNL creates, maintains and provides access to a coherent, high-level, state-of-the-art infrastructure for nanotechnology research and innovation in the Netherlands. NanoLabNL brings about coherence in national infrastructure, access, and tariff structure. Alongside the various open innovation initiatives, the Netherlands offers a unique infrastructure which needs to be kept up-to-date.

The NanoLabNL partners and their labs are:

*Philips Innovation Services is an associate partner, participating in NanoLabNL with regards to content but not in financial terms.

Together, the eight partners on 5 locations (Twente, Delft, Eindhoven, Groningen and Amsterdam) cover most of the country and offer the widest possible spectrum of nanotechnology facilities for researchers in The Netherlands.

The NanoLabNL organisation consists of the board/foundation, the steering committee, the program office and a communication officer. 

NanoLabNL board/foundation
The board of the foundation consists of at least five members: five representatives of the NanoLabNL locations, and a seat for a representative from industry. The foundation's goals are:

  • Realizing the micro and nano research facility ambitions.
  • Facilitating and stimulating of current and future nano-related research.
  • Stimulating the open-access character of the high tech NanoLabs.
  • Connecting with national and international research programs.
  • Increasing external use by companies.

The board of the NanoLabNL-foundation consists of 6 members:

Chairman:
