The Center for Advanced Nanoscience at UCSD collaborates with other nanoscience research groups at other universities and institutes all over the world. These are just a few of those institutions.
The Madrid Institute of Advanced Studies in Nanoscience was created in 2007 as part of a collaboration agreement between the Madrid Regional Government and the Ministry of Science and Education of Spain. The objective of this agreement was to create and run together a new international research centre of excellence focused on frontier science and technology at the nano scale.
IMDEA Nanociencia is a non profit Foundation and its Board of Trustees includes representatives of the Administration, the Academic Institutions involved (Universidades Complutense, Autónoma, Politécnica de Madrid, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas), industries, members of the Scientific Advisory Council, and experts in technology transfer. IMDEA Nanociencia not only aims to attract scientific talent to Spain, but also help to create a new model of knowledge and technology transfer, incorporating the strategic requirements of the companies to the research that is being carried out.
