The Institute of NanoSciences of Paris (INSP) is a joint research unit of CNRS and Sorbonne University. Created on January 1, 2005, it brings together teams from four condensed matter physics laboratories on the Jussieu campus.

Its scientific objectives are at the heart of fundamental research in nanosciences, but it also has a wide range of applications: optoelectronics and telecommunications, earth sciences and the environment, catalysis and medical diagnostics.
