With Europe

C’Nano centres of competence play the role of intermediary for european initiatives and programmes on nanotechnologies as well as for a set of additionnal programmes such as NanoSci-Era, Nano-Safe, Nano-to-life, Time for Nano, etc.

With the French National Research Agency

- The French national meeting on nanosciences & nanotechnolgies (J3N) are yearly and jointly organized with the French national research agency (ANR) since 2007. They took place in Paris (2007), Grenoble (2008), Toulouse (2009), Lille (2010) and Strasbourg (2011). In 2012, they will be organized in Bordeaux.

- Nano-Innov programme managed by ANR:

— Ensuring support to national and proximity technology centres

— Directly or indirectly supporting C’Nano in particular for educative programmes (schools) and the Nano & Society programme

With CNRS

For our main administrative authority, we ensure:
- Evaluation of proximity technology facilities and their projects
- Educative programmes on nano for researchers and technical staff

With French regional councils

Some regional council delegated their duties concerning the administration of support programmes in nanosciences and nanotechnologies to C’Nano centres of competence (Ile-de-France, South-Western).

With the French national laboratory for metrology and trials

GIF - 19.8 kb Development of Nanosciences represents one of the major scientific challenges of the next decades. Technological and industrial activities related to these fields have raised new questions, especially concerning measurements and traceability to the International System, which are linked to metrology (standards, reference materials, calibration methods, etc.). In order to meet needs coming from French industrials and academic actors, C’Nano created in partnership with the French national Laboratory for metrology and trials (LNE) a national club in nanometrology called Club nanoMétrologie, which has been launched October 6th 2011 during the MesurExpoVision Exhibition (Paris, Porte de Versailles).
