The CIC nanoGUNE Consolider, a newly established center in permanent pursuit of scientific excellence, with the mission and commitment to contributing to the competitive growth of the Basque Country, through the development of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
NanoGUNE, promoted by the Department of Industry, Trade, and Tourism of the Basque Government, represents a necessary step for the promotion of a solid knowledge community with the vocation of transferring the results of research to an industrial sector that needs to become increasingly more competitive in the current scenario of globalization. A world-class research team, state-of-the-art facilities, close collaboration with other research laboratories and with industry, and a commitment to our society define our way of understanding scientific research.
Being a small center in a small country, we will compete and collaborate with many other research laboratories around he world until we find the space that will allow us to offer something different. Doing so, we will be contributing to the creation of the necessary conditions for the humanity to benefit from a wide range of nanotechnologies. This is the big challenge of the small.
