Welcome on the NanoWal website

The Wallonia Network for Nanotechnologies aims at gathering the academic laboratories, the research centers and the industries active in the fields of nanosciences and nanotechnologies in the Wallonia Region of Belgium and in Brussels, in order to enhance both Belgian competencies and activities in those fields.

Presently, approximately 40 academic research teams from the five major universities of the French Community of Belgium (UCLouvain, ULB, ULg, UMONS and UNamur) are members of the network, as well as several research centers and industries. This represents more than 300 researchers.

On this site, you will find information concerning the objectives, the structure, and the activities in the "Presentation" section. In the "Members" section, you will find information on the activities of the network members. In the "Education" section, the training activites organized by the network are listed.
