EuroNanoLab, is a collaborative network formed by the research infrastructures for micro- and nanofabrication of France (RENATECH), the Netherlands (NanoLab NL), Norway (NorFab), Sweden (Myfab), Czech Republic (CEITEC), Portugal and Spain (International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory). We have also close cooperation with the nanofabrication infrastructures of Denmark (DTU Danhip), Germany (KNMF/KIT and MacroNano/TU Ilmenau), Finland (Micronova/Aalto University) and Switzerland (CMI/EPFL) that are potential associated partners for EuroNanoLab. The research infrastructures within EuroNanoLab apply user-fee based open-access to tools, processes and services for users from academy and industry.

EuroNanoLab at a glance

EuroNanoLab Glance

EuroNanoLab is an initiative to establish a large scale distributed nanofabrication research infrastructure.

  • Enhance excellence by building superior processing competence.
  • Accelerate Research by process exchange and single-access point to nanofabrication RI and expertise.
  • Share competences by defining European standards in cleanroom procedures.
  • Strengthening cooperation by building an alliance between scientist and nanofabrication experts.

EuroNanoLab's Vision

EuroNanoLab provides world-class nanofabrication research infrastructure and expertise to increase the quality, efficiency and relevance of European basic research within nanotechnology.
