Having been a Strategic Research Area of Sweden for a full decade now, NanoLund can look back on yet another year of success. 286 scientific publications, directly related to nanoscience, sets a new record. Of the 148 PhD students actively engaged in Sweden’s largest research environment for interdisciplinary nanoscience and nanotechnology, 21 graduated during this year.
NanoLund scientists presented our work in 19 different countries. Just to mention a few new grants, our members have attracted two new European Research Council grants, and were awarded three Swedish Research Council Research Environments, and three Wallenberg Scholar awards. There are now 15 active spin-off companies that have emerged from the NanoLund environment – one of them named Nordic Nanotech Company of the Year at the NanoForum 2019 conference.
“I am very proud of the strong engagement of our members and staff that enables this breadth of high-level activity, and I am also most grateful to all our external partners in academia, industry, institutes, local and national administration”, says Heiner Linke, Director of NanoLund.
