Birth of C2N

Established on June 1st 2016, the Centre de Nanosciences et de Nanotechnologies / Centre for Nanoscience & Nanotechnology (C2N) was launched in the wake of the joint CNRS and Université Paris-Sud decision to merge and gather on the same campus site the Laboratory for Photonics and Nanostructures (LPN) and the Institut d’Electronique Fondamentale (IEF).

Its location on the Paris-Saclay campus is expected in 2018, the new C2N buildings being under construction.
