Following long time partnerships (research collaborations and joint supervision of postgraduate students) amongst materials science and engineering researchers at the four ISNNAM pioneering partnering institutions, namely the University of Johannesburg South Africa, Tshwane University of Science and Technology Pretoria, South Africa, Federal University of Technology Akure, Nigeria and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi Ghana, and the successful hosting of the 2020 International Symposium on Nanostructured and Advanced Materials (ISNNAM 2020) in August 2020, the International Scientific Network on Nanostructured and Advanced Materials was established. Our Network promotes international research visit amongst collaborating members, bench work opportunities for research students and encourages joint supervision of postgraduate students. During research visits, researchers share research experience through lectures, workshops and seminars. We periodically facilitate virtual seminars.
ISNNAM’s administrative office is located at that Centre for Nanomechanics and Tribocorrosion at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.
