Leading the way in Nanotechnology
Our Centre for Nanohealth is one of the UK’s pioneering centres for nanoscience teaching and research.
This 1600m2 purpose build open access facility provides a technology and innovation base for industry and academia in Wales, UK and beyond. To date CNH has initiated many collaborative projects with industry and other HEIs realising more than £20 Million further investment.
The CNH started life as growing activity between Swansea’s Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre in the College of Engineering, and the Medical School before being developed into a major project. The £21.6M project started in 2009, funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Swansea University, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, Welsh Government Department for Health and Social Services and the Private Sector.
