Lund University invites external actors to collaborate and co-finance the establishment of Nanolab Science Village.

Lund University works tirelessly to make the world a better place. With the mission to understand, explain, and improve our world and the human condition through research and education, we invite you to collaborate with Lund University in establishing NanoLund’s new laboratory Nanolab Science Village.

NanoLund at Lund University is a strong, internationally leading, interdisciplinary research environment. Our world-renowned researchers in technology, natural science, the social sciences, and medicine collaborate in studies of the absolutely smallest units found in nature. Through a deep understanding of how nature is structured, researchers seek knowledge to contribute to improved conditions for humankind and the planet. The Swedish government has given NanoLund the status of a Strategic Research Area and provides long-term support. Lund University is inviting external stakeholders to collaborate and co-finance the establishment of NanoLund’s new cleanroom laboratory for nanoscience in Science Village.

Our funders

To finance the equipment for the new lab, an extensive funding program is underway. The largest contribution is planned from the Olle Engkvist Foundation, which intends to donate a total of SEK 100 million. Other major contributions come from the LMK Foundation, the Crafoord Foundation, Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn, the Swedish Research Council through Myfab, and Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation through the Wallenberg Initiative for Sustainable Materials – WISE.

“Our funders are invaluable to us, as they make it possible for us to conduct cutting-edge research with state-of-the-art equipment,” says Anders Mikkelsen, director of NanoLund.
