2 Did you know that... What is the Nanotechnology cluster about? The Nanotechnology cluster in the Tampere Region is formed by three microclusters: the advanced materials platform, aerosol technology and photonics clusters, all emerging from innovative research at the Tampere University of Technology (TUT). Long-term and innovative photonics R&D in the TUT/Optoelectronics Research Centre is the backbone of the laser technology microcluster in the Tampere Region. Well-established aerosol technology research at the TUT/Physics has created a bunch of success stories in imaging and measurement technology business. Tampere-based nanoand photonics technologies have strong synergies and present opportunities for the global cleantech industry. As a whole, the Nanotechnology cluster is stimulating co-operation between research and industry by demonstrating world-class nanotech and cleantech products and business innovations. The spearhead of the Tampere Region is in strong component and system delivery development and product creation....nanotechnology is already a part of almost everyone s life? All modern consumer electronics such as computers or mobile phones are enabled by nanotechnology. LED lamps couldn t have been invented without nano-scale management. Dirt-repellent nanocoated tablecloths or suits, slower-darkening silver jewellery and skis also use nanotechnology.... Nanotechnology can revolutionise the way of doing many things? The Nanotechnology cluster in the Tampere Region is a combination of: A WIDE COMPANY BASE Skilled people, capability of renewal, co-operation with universities and innovation platforms UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES High-quality research and education, labour with know-how Nanotechnology, or nanotech for short, is the basic manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular and supramolecular level. With nanotechnology, it is possible to create many new materials and devices with a vast range of applications: for example, medicine, electronics, biomaterials and energy production....finland and Tampere are at the forefront of nanotechnology research?
