collage of images that represent parts of CeNano research

The Centre in Nano science and technology (CeNano) is an organisation within Linköping Institute of Technology (LiTH) at Linköping University. CeNano acts for exposure and strengthening of the research in nano science and nano technology at LiTH.

The mission of CeNano is to strengthen and support the competence within nano science and nano technology at LiTH. This is done by gathering researchers with nano activities at LiTH in the centre and by acting for increased collaborations and joint projects in the nano realm. CeNano also acts for development and coordination of the graduate and under graduate education in this scientific area. Included in the mission of CeNano is also exposure of the nano activities at LiTH by seminars, actions for contact establishment, taking initiative to larger projects, etc.
