NorFab: Norwegian Micro- and Nanofabrication Facility II
NorFab's vision is: NorFab shall be a robust and competent backbone for research and innovation based on MNT in Norway.
About the project
NorFab is the Norwegian national infrastructure for micro- and nanofabrication consisting of 4 partners: MiNaLab (SINTEF and UiO), NTNU NanoLab and MSTLab at HBV. NorFab provides national access to an infrastructure that contains generic and state of the art equipment applicable for micro- and nanotechnology (MNT). By a continuous and systematic build-up of a cleanroom process knowledge base, which is shared between the nodes and made available to the users, the infrastructure is made accessible to users from academia, institutes and industry. The vision is to develop the infrastructure towards a robust and competent backbone for research and innovation based on MNT in Norway. Where the main goals are to improve the quality and volume of the MNT research and enhance innovation in the sector. NorFab aims at supporting all areas of basic knowledge development, innovation and commercialization, and responsible technology development.
NorFab's two main objectives are:
- To build competence and provide access to generic techniques vital to both basic and applied research in micro- and nanotechnology.
- To maintain a suitable infrastructure for process development and pilot fabrication open to an emerging and growing Norwegian nano- and microsystems industry.
