Nanotechnology in Twente


Twente is the place to be for nanotechnology. The University of Twente is the only university in the Netherlands to offer a master’s degree in Nanotechnology, for example. Twente is also home to the MESA+ institute, one of the world’s largest and leading research institutes in the field of nanotechnology!


More than 500 scientists work together at the MESA+ institute on the latest innovations in the field of materials science, ‘lab-on-a-chip’ technology, nanophotonics, nanoelectronics and nanofluids. The MESA+ Institute gives students and entrepreneurs the opportunity to use this unique NanoLab for research, testing, development and production of nanotechnology.




University of Twente’s Fraunhofer Project Center focuses on applying current research in the field of advanced manufacturing technologies in the industry. Examples are the development of technological solutions in the field of production processes, production equipment, digital production and the organisation of the production chain. Fraunhofer Project Center builds synergies together with the industry, so that high-tech can excel in the fourth industrial revolution and to train the technical talents of the future.
