Nanolito is the Spanish Nanolithography Network ( sponsored by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness aiming to promote transfer of  knowledge between academic and industrial partners in the field of  nanolithography. This Workshop and Summer School is oriented to final-year-degree, masters and doctoral students as well as young postdocs in the field of Nanoscience.

  • Main objectives:

For the students, the main objectives of this course are to get exposed to the different available nanolithography techniques and to learn the required interdisciplinary approaches to solving the technological challenges involved in fabricating a nanodevice, especially in the case of biosensors. It is intended that the student can get to know first-hand international specialists in the field of Nanotechnology and Nanofabrication, as well as other students in this subject, thus promoting and nurturing future collaborations and multidisciplinary bets in this challenging field of study.

Students will be able to present their work both during the powerpoint-slide session, where they will briefly introduce their research project, as well as during coffee breaks where poster sessions will take place.


Registration is twofold, onsite (face-to-face lectures) or online. We do encourage students that are unable to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions to apply if interested. Registration fee is 150€ including coffee breaks and conference dinner (if sanitary restrictions due to COVID-19 are eased)
