Welcome to the NanoManufacturing Institute

The leading European centre for research into the nanomanufacturing of high volume consumer products, the NMi is an interdisciplinary research institute that draws upon the University of Leeds' substantial science base in nanotechnology.

Our objective is to undertake fundamental and applied research focusing on the problems of scale-up and high throughput manufacturing of nano-enabled consumer products.

Working across traditional academic discipline boundaries, the NMi's goal is to stimulate and accelerate the discovery of functional nanoscaler materials and investigate their use in consumer products primarily in the pharmaceutical, chemical, energy, food packaging, textiles, personal and household goods and related sectors.

All of this is summed up in the NMi's core aim of enabling science for nanomanufacturing.
