LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A $3.7 million grant has been awarded to the University of Louisville and University of Kentucky to create a national center of excellence in micro/nanotechnology.

The National Science Foundation grant announced Monday is one of 16 awarded to universities across the U.S. out of more than 100 that competed.

The two Kentucky universities will make university facilities, tools and expertise available to outside users.

U of L interim provost Neville Pinto said in a news release that eight facilities at the universities will become a collaborative center to use the smallest materials to make the next wave of smart products.

Director J. Todd Hastings of UK’s Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering says the universities are working to build miniature solutions for applications such as health care and energy.
