Annual Report for 2018
Just in time for the summer break, we are happy to present our Annual Report for the year 2018. Some highlights include:
  • The quantity and quality of our scientific publications remains high, with this year more than 160 publications specifically in nanoscience, in high-quality journals with an average Journal Impact Factor as high as 6.2, and a continued good balance between high-impact papers and in-depth archival papers.
  • The number of PhD students working on nanoscience in NanoLund research groups has now increased to 138, and as many as 28 PhD students graduated in 2018.
  • Our new section on Innovation highlights that as many as 27 companies have resulted from the NanoLund environment since its start in 1990.
We would like to express a big thanks to all our staff and partners for all the hard work, engagement and enthusiasm that makes such a strong performance possible.

We wish you all a relaxing and well-deserved summer break.
Heiner Linke, Director

New scientific coordinators in NanoLund
After a full 10 years of serving as the coordinator of NanoLund’s research area Quantum Physics, Stephanie Reimann (Mathematical Physics)  has decided to step down from her role to be able to focus on her new Wallenberg Scholar project. We thank Steffi for all her contributions, not the least to bringing collaborations between theory and experiment in NanoLund to a high level. Tönu Pullerits (Chemical Physics, top left) will now take over as the coordinator of Quantum Physics, and we welcome Rainer Timm (Synchrotron Radiation Physics, top right) as a new member of the coordinator group, helping to coordinate Lund Nano Characterization Labs (LNCL).
In another recent change, Christina Isaxon (Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology, bottom left) and Mikael Ekvall (Aquatic Ecology, bottom right) have taken over the coordination of Nanosafety from Tommy Cedervall and Anders Gudmundsson who stepped down in January to focus on other tasks.
Industry representative on the NanoLund Board
We are very happy to welcome Thomas H. Callisen as a new member of our Board. Thomas is Senior Manager at the Danish company Novozymes and has a long track record of leading technology projects and of fostering partnership between industry and academia. We are much looking forward to working with you, Thomas!
We would also like to thank Lars Palm for his strong engagement as the prior industry representative on our Board. Lars has recently switched from Tetra Pak to a position as the Head of Lund University Commissioned Education, and we look forward to working together in this new role. 
IVC-21
As we write this, the IVC-21 in organized by NanoLund in Malmö is in full swing. Two Nobel laureates, 8 plenary speakers and 700 oral contributions and posters make for an exciting meeting with lots of interactions. Thanks to all helpers from NanoLund who make this possible!
