Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO)

Several research groups are associated with iNANO, which collaborate on interdisciplinary research. Each research group contributes their own special expertise in chemistry, physics, molecular biology, medicine, etc. so as to benefit from each other's knowledge and methods.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation CO2 Research Center (CORC)

Some scientists from the Department of Chemistry is also part of CORC. The centre is working on developing new science within CO2 capture and CO2 conversion for storage or utilisation. The purpose of the centre’s mission driven research is to replace fossil carbon and fossil fuel-intensive processes with sustainable, CO2-based technologies.
