Keen-Regions aims to accelerate and foster the nanotechnology development in three European regions - Veneto (Italy), Rhone Alps (France) and Basque Country (Spain)- through the establishment of consistent and cooperative networks of research centres, boosting the synergies among the research and business communities and valorising the complementarities among these regions.

KEEN-Regions is one of the Regions of Knowledge projects and it is supported by the European Commission through its Seventh Framework Programme.



Nanofab is the Venetian laboratory for research on nanotechnologies applied to materials, mainly focused on surface treatments, nanostructured polymers, powder metallurgy, sensors and biosensors.


NanoGUNE is a Basque center with the mission of performing world-class nanoscience and nanotechnology research for the competitive growth of the region.
