'Surface Plasmon Early Detection of Circulation Heat Shock Proteins' (SPEDOC) is a multidisciplinary European FP7 research project for early diagnosis, treatment monitoring and follow-up of cancer at the level of oncology research institutes. The goal of this three year project is the early detection of cancer by combining the latest advances of nano-optics, optical manipulation and microfluidics with the ultimate findings on the heat shock protein HSP70-recently shown to increase its expression in cancer cells. Ultrasensitive tracking of HSP70 proteins may yield to future devices enabling point of care diagnosis and eventually lead to individualized therapy.
The aim of this European research project is to study nanoscale self-assembly in two systems. Both use surfactant micelles as a template structure to hierarchically order polyelectrolytes on several length scales.

Part of the EU 'New Emerging Science and Technology' Programme, SIBMAR aims at high resolution structural information of individual biological molecules by employing coherent low energy electron waves.
The EU funded STREP project SUBTLE is associated with nanoelectronic devices in which quantum-confined electron channels are so closely spaced to each other that tailored feedback action exists. The approach of SUBTLE is based on the application of two effects in miniaturized electronics, which one usually tries to avoid in device design: back-action of the channel on the gate and noise induced switching.
The Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO) is a non-profit, worldwide professional society comprised of individuals and institutions that are engaged in: Research and development of sustainable nanotechnology; Implications of nanotechnology for Environment, Health, and Safety; Advances in nanoscience, methods, protocols and metrology; Education and understanding of sustainable nanotechnology; Applications of nanotechnology for sustainability. SNO's purpose is to provide a professional society forum to advance knowledge in all aspects of sustainable nanotechnology, including both applications and implications.
SustainComp is a large scale collaborative project financed by the European Commission. The project aims at developing new types of sustainable composite materials for a wide range of applications and has the ambition to integrate today's large enterprises on the raw material and end-use sides. (e.g. pulp mills and packaging manufacturers) and small and medium sized enterprises on the composite processing side (e.g. compounders and composite manufacturers).
SustainPack is the biggest and most important packaging research project ever undertaken. The purpose of SustainPack is to establish fibre-based packaging as the dominant player in the packaging area within a decade. It will achieve this by applying nanotechnology solutions to deliver lean and added value fibre-based packaging options for users and consumers.
