Cambridge, Nokia Forge Nano-Tech Research Pact

The University of Cambridge in the U.K. and Nokia Research announced a long-term agreement to work together on nanotechnology projects. As part of the deal, the telecom giant will build a research facility at the University's West Cambridge site to collaborate with its nanoscience and electrical engineering departments.

Nokia said it will initially base 10 people at Cambridge but that the number of Nokia researchers at the University will rise over time.

Cambridge considers itself a leader in nanotechnology research with interests across the university in nano-electronics, nano-materials, and biological nanostructures. "Cambridge and Nokia share a common belief in the ability of nanotechnology to deliver products and applications of tangible value to people," said Prof. Mark Welland, director of Cambridge’s Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration in nanotechnology.
