Nanomanufacturing Center


The Nanomanufacturing Center focuses on basic Nanomanufacturing research, collaborative research with industry, and education of the future workforce that enables advanced manufacturing and commercialization of nanotechnology products.


Building on our existing expertise in polymer manufacturing and worker health and safety, we have expanded our research with the award of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN). This NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), one of only four in nanomanufacturing nationally, is a collaboration of the University of Massachusetts Lowell, Northeastern University, and the University of New Hampshire. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has designated UMass Lowell as a Nanomanufacturing Center of Excellence (NCOE), with funding through the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (John Adams Innovation Institute).
