Life Cycle Status
Construction since 2010
Mission and objective
The Center of Excellence in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology - Nanocenter (CENN Nanocenter) is organised as a consortium of 15 partners of which 4 are academic and 11 are industry partners, whose common goal is to set up a technological infrastructure platform for the competitive development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (N&N) in Slovenia. Members of the consortium include majority of N&N researchers in Slovenia. One of its main goals is to bridge the gap between what academia can offer and what industry can absorb in order to achieve a higher level of technological development in industry and increase the added value of its products. The project focuses on synthesis, nanofabrication, characterisation and modeling facilities on an internationally competitive level. The CENN Nanocenter is a continuation of the highly succesful, but much smaller Center of Excellence (CoE)in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology funded in the period 2004-2008 from European restructuring funds. The CENN Nanocenter builds on experience and good working practices developed in the previous fiunding period, and now includes the equipment infrastructure of the original CoE. CENN Nanocenter offers infrastructure with open access to academic, research, industry and civil subjects to the facility.
