€ 150 million for NanoLabNL
On the 9th of April The Netherlands’ National Growth Fund awarded NanoLabNL with € 150 million to invest in sustaining and expanding the Dutch nanotechnological infrastructure. The grant allows NanoLabNL to invest in facilities, high-tech equipment, research and development at the laboratories in Amsterdam, Delft, Eindhoven, Enschede and Groningen in the next 7 years. The investments at TU/e will primarily be used for renewal and upgrading the cleanroom equipment of NanoLabTUe for the Photonics and Quantum research programs.
Maintaining and expanding the technological level of the current infrastructure in nanotechnology is essential in realising the Netherlands’ ambition to achieve a leading position in deep-tech industry and quantum-technology.
The NanoLabNL funding is part of a total € 615 million investment fund, granted to Quantum Delta, a consortium of leading professors, scientists, industry, and organizations in quantum technology. The Netherlands has a long track record of innovation in quantum technology and continues to play a leading role in building a world-class European quantum ecosystem.
