NanoNetwork continues to 2020

The mid-term evaluation of ten National Research Schools that are part of the Research Council of
Norway¬īs scheme for national research schools (FORSKERSKOLER) is completed, and NanoNetwork has been approved for funding throughout the entire project period.

 

The general conclusion about the NanoNetwork starts as follows:

Overall, the school appears to have succeeded in its basic mission, which is to develop a national and international network, ensure access to laboratory facilities, improve the quality of researcher training in the field, provide general courses not available at the individual institutions, and bring together a sizeable population of PhD students in the field from across Norway.

The report ends with a recommendation from the evaluation committee that a plan is made for continuation of the school after funding from the Research Council has ended.
