Nanoscale Science - Impact on Life Sciences, Sustainability, Information and Communication Technologies

The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR), Nanoscale Science - Impact on Life Sciences, Sustainability, Information and Communication Technologies, focuses on an area of research with great significance for the future. Nanosciences deal with the fundamental building blocks of matter and their properties in the smallest spatial dimensions and deliver basic knowledge from the disciplines of biology, chemistry, physics and engineering. Yet life sciences and new approaches in information technology are also based on nanoscale building blocks which is why new approaches, scientific tools, manufacturing methods and understanding of nanosciences are being developed jointly. The NCCR Nanoscale Science provides an interface between research institutions and industry, and established the Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) in Basel.

Home institution: University of Basel
