Swiss Nanoscience Institute


The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) at the University of Basel is a center of excellence for nanosciences and nanotechnology. It emerged from the National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) Nanoscale Science and was founded in 2006 by the University of Basel and the Swiss Canton Aargau in order to support research, education, and technology transfer in the nanosciences and in nanotechnology in Northwestern Switzerland. Through the high-tech strategy of the Canton of Aargau, in which nanotechnology is a key component in driving innovation support, the role of the SNI is even more important in connecting industry with cutting-edge research.
