The Microsystems and nanotechnology cluster, shortly MinacNed, is an association aiming to strenghten the Dutch economic activity based on microsystems and nanotechnology in the Netherlands. Our memberfile consists of research institutes, equipement manufacturers, suppliers and users of technological components.

The entire supply chain is represented by the association. MinacNed has about sixty members.

The board of the association consists of eight persons and represents also the scientific research programs MicroNed and NanoNed. Chairman is Ronny van ‘t Oever, technical director of Micronit Microfluidics Enschede.

About three times a year, MinacNed organises membermeetings, with a (prospective) member hosting the meeting. During these meetings, association business and activities are discussed. Each meeting will be dominated by lectures about a current topic. In addition, the meetings are an excellent opportunity to network. New members and members with a new development are given the opportunity to present themselves or their innovations by an elevatorpitch.

Moreover, several other activities take place.
