The UND Nanofoundry will launch in 2023.
UND Nanofoundry has been funded by the State of North Dakota as a part of UND’s Space Education and Research Initiative. The main motivation behind the investment is to enhance the University’s capabilities to pursue, secure and execute projects funded by both federal and private funding agencies. This initiative will generate extensive opportunities in research, training, and education for a broad range of colleges, schools, programs, faculty, and undergraduate and graduate students.
Work is underway on site at the Tech Accelerator, future home of the UND Nanofoundry.
