Support teams

As a cross-faculty, multi disciplinary university centre, Sydney Nano is supported by existing faculty structures and the university’s shared service operations units.

Additionally the Sydney Nano executive and academics are supported by a small Administrative Services Unit (ASU), to assist in operations, strategy and delivery of the institute’s research and education programs.
