To develop the Excellence Initiative Nano, we have allocated funding to a number of activities. Our challenge is to bring together the historically separate, strong research activities in nanoscience and nanotechnology that are housed in different departments at Chalmers, and see it that we build a community that is even stronger than its constituent parts.

EI Nano Community Building 2022

We are very much looking forward to a Community Building Activity 2022, which as seems for now will
take place in person in some nice location along the Swedish West coast! The planned date is August
22-24 (in week 34) and you will receive more information via the Nano mailing list soon.

Poster small talkSmallTalks [about Nanoscience]

Our seminar series SmallTalks [about Nanoscience], takes place every second Monday afternoon. The announcements will be posted as usual via the EI Nano mailing list!​

You will find all information about the SmallTalks seminars in the EI Nano calendar​

EI Nano “Lunches” with PIs and EI Directors

We have had a number of remote lunches with the EI Nano PIs in the first half of 2021. We enjoyed very
much meeting all of you and are happy about all the valuable feedback that we got from you! We would
therefore like to pick up our regular lunches again! We think that this is a nice, informal possibility to
share your/our views on the EI Nano. It seems that we will be able to have these lunches live this year!
Up to 5 PIs can register for each lunch. So please just register for one of them. It is not visible to
everyone else, who has registered but the taken times will simply disappear from the list. We will send
out a reminder to the registered persons on the same day of the lunch. Note however that the lunch is
not going to be reimbursed by EI Nano! We are looking forward to meeting you! /Janine and Christoph

Initiative Seminar

We will have an Initiative seminar again (which was paused for two years because of the pandemic)
and it will take place in the beginning of December 2022. The theme of the Initiative seminar Quantum
Materials will be related to the last granted Initiative Postdoc project.​
