Updates regarding Stage 1: Nanolab Science Village

Earlier this spring, Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn granted 8 million SEK for new equipment for Nanolab Science Village. This instrument provides Nanolab with the ability to deposit materials with better control and represents another important step towards a well-equipped laboratory that can contribute to both cutting-edge research and solutions to the significant challenges in climate, environment, and medicine.

What’s happening next for Stage 2?

The project group is working with two sharp deadlines this semester – delivering a scope proposal in October and a premises programme for Stage 2 in December. Learn more about the project group’s planned activities for this autumn:
