Free use of NanoLabNL facilities for industrial parties

As of today a voucher for free use of the NanoLabNL facilities can be applied for directly.  After several successful application rounds for free vouchers, the vouchers can now be applied for throughout the year. Parties interested in free use of the NanoLabNL facilities can directly apply for a voucher. A NanoLabNL voucher has a value of 7500 euros and gives the user the right to 50 to 75 hours of independent use of the facilities of the nanotechnology labs (including training) and/or advice about this.

For industrial parties only
The vouchers are intended for industrial parties who have not previously made use of NanoLabNL's facilities. For example, starting and young companies who are busy building up a business around research results.

With the vouchers these companies can easily become acquainted with our research facilities and we stimulate the entrepreneurial activity. Over the past few years, dozens of vouchers have been awarded to companies. In this continuous call, NanoLabNL is making 10 vouchers per year available each of which is worth 7500 euros.
