Founded in 2004, the LNN is managed by Lehigh University's Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology (CAMN), which since the 1960s has enabled businesses to benefit from Lehigh's expertise and unique laboratory facilities.
The LNN is guided by an Executive Board served by Sustaining Members. LNN meetings focus on key technical and commercial nanotechnology topics. Opportunities exist for workshops, discussion and focus groups, symposia, and tours, with emphasis on exchange of ideas and knowledge and collaboration between members.
Centered on the resources of its members, the LNN aims to broaden access to regional nanotechnology expertise and facilities. The LNN also presents opportunities for education and training (web-based, on campus, and at company locations), and student employment opportunities.
The LNN has become an interactive, visible, growing organization with continuous generation of ideas and links to other related organizations.
