Network of research laboratories in nanotechnology

Financed (2001- 2004) by the national RTDI programme MATNANTECH (New materials, micro- and nanotechnologies)
Contact person: Dr. Marius Bazu(; Prof. Dan Dascalu (

NANOTECHNET is a national (Romanian) network, set-up in October 2001, as a more focused structure (on nanotechnologies), as a development of the existing network MICRONANOTECH. The network NANOTECHNET has a truly multidisciplinary character, grouping scientists specialised in physics, microelectronics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, etc. Also, multiple forms of organising the research are involved: the participants are national research institutes, research institutes of the Romanian Academy, university centres and small companies involved in research activities. The representatives of all participants form a virtual steering committee. The activity of NANOTECHNET is mainly supported by a project (2001-2004) from the national program MATNANTECH.
