The Rhode Island Consortium for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology was established in 2010 by Congress as a joint entity between the University of Rhode Island and Brown University. The Consortium seeks to:

  • Enhance the State of Rhode Island’s competitiveness as a center of excellence in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
  • Promote industry-university collaboration and new technology ventures to catalyze economic growth and job creation in the region.
  • Build research teams that exploit complementary strengths at URI and Brown, as well as industry, to define and solve important problems.
  • Establish critical infrastructure allowing campus and non-campus access to state-of-the-art instrumentation for nanoscale research and development.
