The Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory at the University of Oslo, MiNaLab UiO, is an advanced research infrastructure and is among the largest single experimental facilities at UiO. MiNaLab-UiO is a partner in the national infrastructure consortium “The Norwegian Micro- and Nanofabrication Facility”, NorFab.

Research and education at MiNaLab UiO combine material science, micro- and nanotechnology for applications in Electronics, Energy and Life Sciences.

As Research Infrastructure Coordinator at MiNaLab UiO, my key function is to broaden the lab’s collaboration with external users (academic and industrial) and participate in the development of new processes in cooperation with the users.
