The nano centres of the universities in the Øresund Region — University of Copenhagen, Technical University of Denmark and Lund University — together with MC2 at Chalmers University of Technol-ogy and the Imgeo Institute in Gothenburg join forces to build up a network for co-operation within nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology — the growth industry of the future
Used efficiently, knowledge on nanotechnology will have an immense industrial impact. More than 50 billion SEK are invested globally in research and development each year, and the market for nanotech applications is expected to be about 1,000 billion USD at the year 2015.
Common strategic initiative
The partners will intensify the collaboration across Øresund/Kattegat by a common effort to create a network that boosts the development of nanotech research, education and commercialisation.
”This new collaboration will strengthen our competitiveness and really bring us to the top of the world. Having these strong participants joining forces, we will be able to use the enormous poten-tial of Scandinavia in terms of commercialising nanotechnology” says Daniel Kronmann, Project Manager of Nano Øresund, a partner working for enabling the collaboration.
South West Scandinavia — among the strongest clusters
In an international comparison, this consortium is one of the five strongest nanotech clusters in the EU and among the ten best in the world. This initiative will consolidate and improve South West Scandinavia’s position to be among the best in the world.

Nanotechnology and nanoscience is about studying and manipulating matter at atomic levels, and by that, be able to design required properties and special functionalities. There are many different areas of application for nanotechnology, within completely different industries; examples of innovations are lighter and stronger mate-rials, new medical aids, small electronics and enhanced environmental production.
Nano Øresund brings together and promotes the nano resources in the Øresund region. Nano Øresund is a part of Øresund Science Region.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
