Did you know that…...Nanotechnology is already a part of almost everyone's life? All the modern consumer electronics, such as computers or mobile phones, are enabled by nanotechnology. Dirt-repellent nano- coating tablecloth or suit, slower-darkening silver jewelery and skis also use nanotechnology – for example! Nanotechnology is manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular and supramolecular scale. 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. It is one of the world’s fastest growing areas of scientific research. Tampere is the second largest nanotechnology research hub in Finland after Helsinki.
What is the Nanotechnology cluster about? NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION IN NANOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT 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 MODERN INNOVATION PLATFORMS New Factory, Demola, Protomo, Konela, Suuntaamo NEW INNOVATION AND APPLICATION ENABLERS, OTHER CLUSTERS IN THE TAMPERE REGION Nanotechnology cluster in the Tampere Region is formed by three microclusters: advanced materials platform, aerosol technology and photonics clusters, all emerging from innovative research in Tampere University of Technology (TUT).

How do we operate? The New Factory is an environment for open innovation where ideas can be processed into prototypes, pilot projects, products and services, new business and new jobs. Demola is an open innovation environment where university students from different fields develop products and services in teams together with companies and public-sector organizations. Protomo is a developing community for starting businesses where idea developers, seasoned professionals and young talents spar each other when creating new products and service development. Suuntaamo connects ordinary people in the development of new and innovative products and services and at the same time improve their own living environment. Konela is a new center of innovation for mechanical engineering and energy technology. Konela is coordinated by the innovation company Hermia.
Nanotechnology is driven by TUT TAMPERE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY Supporting education, research & development: Aerosol Instrumentation and Emissions Group Aerosol Synthesis Group Biological Physics Group BME Biomaterials research group Electronic Structure Theory Materials and Molecule Modeling Micro- and Nanosystems / Automation science and engineering Nanophotonics and application Optics Laboratory Plastics and elastomer technology / Materials Science Semiconductor Technology Surface Engineering Research Group / Materials Research Projects: TREAM – Trends in real-world particle emissions of diesel and gasoline vehicles BRIGHTLASE – New laser technology platform EU FP7 NEWLED – Nanostructured Efficient White LEDs EU FP7: RAMPLAS – 100 Gb/s Optical RAM on-chip Nanotechnology cluster in Tampere is strongly based on innovative research of Tampere University of Technology and its active cooperation with the companies.
