The National Interuniversity Consortium for Nanoelectronics (IU.NET) consists of 14 Italian Universities active in the field of Electronic Technologies and, in particular, physics, modeling, characterization, design and reliability of micro- and nano-electronic components for digital and analog applications, optoelectronic and power devices, sensors and biosensors, renewable energy production facilities, energy harvesting and energy storage. The consortium units are the Politecnici of Milan and Turin and the Universities of Bologna, Calabria, Catania, Ferrara, Modena and Reggio Emilia, Padua, Perugia, Pisa, Rome "La Sapienza", Udine, Bozen and Venice.

The The Consortium was constituted as a legal entity by a formal act on February 21, 2005. Its statutory bodies are the Assembly of Representatives, the Scientific Council and the Director. As of March 2017, the President of the Assembly of IU.NET is Prof. Susanna Reggiani (Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna) and the Director is Prof. Felice Crupi (University of Calabria).

IU.NET has the statutory purpose of promoting research in its various application areas, and acts as a support structure for Associated Universities, coordinating the promotion and implementation of research projects with high innovative content. In conducting European and national projects, IU.NET acts as a unified interface of the Italian Universities, involving from time to time those units with demonstrated competence in the project's themes, and taking care of the scientific and administrative reporting of the activities carried out. The Consortium also organizes every two years courses of advanced training in the Bertinoro conference facility.

The Consortium is a non-profit organization, and does not have its own and autonomous facilities and laboratories. For the implementation of the projects, it uses the structures belonging to the Universities involved, to which it allocates the entire amount of the funding obtained, save a small percentage that the Universities freely devote to support the Consortium. The Director and members of the Assembly do not receive any remuneration for their roles in IU.NET.

The Consortium promotes gender balance within its organizational structure and that of its affiliated Univerisities. It recently approved the first release of its Gender Equality Plan (GEP) following the EC requirements.
