About Us

CENAMPS is an international Centre of Excellence for Nanotechnology, Micro and Photonic Systems. Headquartered in the North East of England and with partners in major trading blocks worldwide, we actively work with industry, academia and governments to create sustained technological capability via exploitation of nanotechnology, microsystems and photonics opportunities. Example activities include:

Our market-driven approach to research, training and business excellence offers a number of benefits to our customers and partners worldwide. These include reduced-risk access to processing and manufacturing know-how, accelerated cooperation with distributed R&D and users, facilitation of spin-off generation, international technology exploitation and the sharing of facilities and costs.

The North East of England has notable academic and commercial strengths in Nanotechnology, Microsystems and Photonics. The region is home to a large number of established and growing advanced manufacturing companies in chemicals, semiconductors, photonics and materials. The region also hosts the UK’s Department of Trade and Industry University Innovation Centre (UIC) for nanotechnology, which builds on the nanotechnology research strengths of Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Sunderland and Teesside Universities.

The Science and Industry Council for the North East of England and the Regional Development Agency, One NorthEast, established CENAMPS as part of the Region’s Strategy for Success.
