Nanotechnology Initiative

UAlberta/National Research Council collaboration

UAlberta and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) have a long standing nanotechnology research partnership. The collaboration was renewed in 2017 and renamed the NRC/UAlberta Nanotechnology Initiative. The collaboration is a unique nanotech hub of expertise and 50M+ in infrastructure and equipment including a 20,000m2 purpose-built facility located on UAlberta's main campus. 

The new partnership model will enable UAlberta and NRC's Nanotechnology Research Centre to better accelerate and expand Canadian nanotechnology expertise and capacity, while continuing to drive world-class nanotech research, discovery and innovation.
