Our Centre has core capabilities in microtechnology, nanotechnology and micro/nanosystems

Working collaboratively with our researchers and international industry partners, we aim to satisfy four objectives:

  • advance a world-class nanotechnology research and development program
  • foster the transfer of new technologies into products for commercial and public benefit
  • develop and sustain educational resources, a skilled workforce, a dynamic infrastructure and toolset to advance nanotechnology
  • support responsible development of nanotechnology.
