The Norwegian PhD Network on Nanotechnology for Microsystems has been established to coordinate, integrate, and strengthen PhD programmes in the field of nanotechnology and microsystems in Norway. Drawing on the strengths of the participating institutions, the objective is to facilitate an expansion in scope and depth of the research training in this field nationwide.
- PhD courses are offered in a compact format to allow participation by PhD candidates from all the partner institutions.
- Annual workshops gather PhD candidates, supervisors and industry partners to exchange ideas, nurture collaboration and communicate new results.
- Travel support is offered PhD candidates who wish to attend lab courses at participating institutions.
- Financial support for international conferences, research activities and laboratory expenses is also available for network participants.
The Norwegian PhD Network on Nanotechnology for Microsystems is funded by the Research Council of Norway’s program for national graduate-level researcher schools (FORSKERSKOLER), Contract no 221860/F40.
