MinacNed is a trade association with the aim of strengthening economic activity based on microsystems and nanotechnology. The members consist of research institutes, the manufacturing industry, suppliers, integrators and end-users of products and services that are made possible by, or make use of, micro and/or nanotechnology.
The core activities of MinacNed contribute to providing a platform for sustainable economic and social value creation and the provision of an ecosystem for researchers, entrepreneurs and policy makers. This platform is created by organizing events and the international MicroNanoConference for our members.
The MinacNed board is comprised of 7 individuals, all representatives of the micro-nanotechnolgoy and working in either industry or science. The board of MinacNed has, together with NanoNextNL, formulated the nanovision 2030 and the program nano4society.
The MinacNed board is represented in the NanoNextNL Foundation, the roadmap nanotechnology, HTSM, and has an active lobby for the industry in The Hague.
