There are different production facilities for external organizations available, is some cases also combined with office space.
High Tech Factory is a unique production facility on the campus of the University of Twente. The building has a total surface of 5,000 m2. This is where companies can rent cleanrooms, high-tech laboratories and office space. High Tech Factory is there for high-tech companies that are up for the next step: scaling-up towards high-volume production.
Because high-quality production equipment is expensive and often difficult to fund, the High Tech Factory has an equipment fund: High Tech Fund. This fund enables companies to hire this equipment so that they do not have to make the large investment themselves at once.
Contacts and telephone numbers can be found on the website of the High Tech Factory.
The MESA+ Nano Lab has in total 2,500 m2 surface area of research space with state-of-the-art technology and equipment. This is where users can develop an almost limitless number of applications in the field of material sciences, lab-on-a-chip technology, nanophotonics, nano-electronics and nanofluidics. Industrial parties are already using these facilities, filling in about 40% of the capacity.
The BioNano Lab, located in the Zuidhorst building, has extremely advanced equipment for applications in (bio-) nano-technology, biology, (bio-) physics, (bio-) chemistry and medicine. This ranges from deposition equipment and dispensing systems to advanced equipment for microscopy/nanoscopy and analyses on a micro- and nano-scale. In addition, there is a so-called ML-II laboratory with a cell analysis system.
