The Master in Molecular Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is the training period of the PhD in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. In this PhD are involved the universities of Valencia, Alicante, Jaume I, La Laguna and Castilla La Mancha.

This PhD program is awarded with the Mention Towards Excellence (MEE2011-0370) given by the General Secretariat of Universities from the Ministry of Education, in its resolution of October 6th 11 (see resolution).

In recent years, some scientific areas such as supramolecular chemistry, molecular biology, and surface and low temperatures physics have reached a remarkable development in our country. Several research groups in these fields have been formed and have achieved an excellent competitive position in the international area. In addition, the research object of these disciplines has been converging towards a new discipline known as Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The strategic importance in R&D of these areas is shown by the fact that they have been prioritized in all national, European and International Programs.

In these areas physicists, chemists, biologists, physicians and engineers are involved in obtaining, organizing, studying and exploiting the properties of nano-sized objects. However, keeping an international competitive position in some nanoscience areas in the present and in the future requires a competence level only reachable with a thematic focus and adequate training of researchers, in order to give them the necessary multidisciplinary knowledge.

The Master in Molecular Nanoscience and Nanotechnology represents also the training period of the PhD in Chemical Science and Technology at the Universidad Autonóma de Madrid and the PhD in Physics at the Universidad de Valladolid.
