Tiny technology - big progress A summing up of 10 years of activity - Nanotechnology and New Materials (NANOMAT)
The NANOMAT programme has boosted national knowledge development in the national priority area of nanotechnology and new materials by providing funding for basic and long-term research and technology development. The programme has also encouraged research and technology development activities in trade and industry by allocating funding to industry-oriented projects, thereby laying the foundation for tomorrow’s knowledge-based industry. The Large-scale Programme Nanotechnology and New Materials (NANOMAT) was conducted to fulfil national research needs. In the course of its 10 years of existence, the programme has given a significant boost to the quality and capacity of research in a field that was relatively new in Norway.
