CEN Foundation

European Centre for Nanomedicine

The CEN Foundation was created in 2009 by a group of institutions based in Lombardy, with the aim of developping innovative solutions for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, establishing an internationally recognised centre of excellence in nanomedical research and building a truly interdisciplinary and synergic network among its partners.


Some history

Italy, and particularly the Lombardy region, is very well-equipped in terms of expertise and excellence centres in the fields involved in nanomedicine, at all crucial levels: scientific research, technologies and industry. In July 2009, a group of 10 founders gave birth to the CEN Foundation - European Centre for Nanomedicine, created to join forces and share knowledge in a cooperative project, aiming to develop novel technologies and approaches to improve man’s health. 

The Lombardy Region Administration (Regione Lombardia), strongly believing in the Foundation potential and mission, provided significant support to its development and co-funded its first project: “Start-up packages and PhD programme”.
