The CIC nanoGUNE is composed of:
- A newly created physical section, the core of the center, with its own staff (management, researchers, technicians, and supporting administration) oriented to open new areas of strategic research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. It strives to achieve the generation of essential knowledge and basic instruments, whilst at the same time participating in the development of applications, along with other agents of the virtual section.
- A virtual section, which brings together research groups that are working in strategic areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology in the Basque Country. The mission of this virtual section is to promote cooperation between agents, including the physical core, so that the system’s abilities can be maximized.
