The INDEX institute focuses on cutting-edge research in the field of nanotechnology, including the development of nanomaterials, fabrication technologies, nanochip designs and architectural integration schemes for realizing the computer nanochip designs of the future.
A European Union-funded infrastructure for nanomaterial safety testing. This four year project which begins in February 2011 comprises 27 top European analytical & experimental facilities in nanotechnology, medicine and natural sciences. It aims to create an integrated hub to support Europe’s nanosafety research community.
The RADSAS project aims at developing efficient strategies for parallel, two-dimensional molecular self-assembly on surfaces, which we consider an indispensable prerequisite for the technical realization of supra-molecular design and engineering.
RECEPTRONICS is a research project funded by the European Commission within the VIth Work Program under the Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences priority. The goal of this project is to develop low-cost, label-free biomolecular detectors/sentinels by integrating concepts and methods from bionanotechnology and micro-/nanoelectronics. More specifically, the project aims to design, fabricate, test and validate a biomorphic hybrid technology by which biological self-assembling structures are interfaced with advanced electronic circuits for signal detection, amplification and conditioning.
The project 'Materiales y dispositivos de nanoescala para conversión y almacenamiento de energía" ('Nanoscale materials and devices for energy conversion and storage') has the main objective of promoting cooperation among countries in Latin America through the development of basic and applied research in various areas of nanotechnology in order to achieve clean energies such as photovoltaics, batteries, LED and a system to get fuel with sunlight.
The specific targeted research project RIMANA (Radical Innovation Maskless Nanolithography) aims to research and develop a key maskless nanolithography technology for low to medium volume production, essential for the semiconductor industry and emerging nanotechnology industry.
IVA is running this project for a period of 12 to 18 months to gather Swedish expertise and players interested in developing Swedish nanotechnology. The project's main purpose is to produce informational materials, formulate a long-term strategy and to prepare a plan for an innovation system within the nano field.
The Russian Corporation of Nanotechnology (RCNT) was established to address the growing challenge that arises with the rapid development of new technologies in the nanoscale. The key directions of RCNT's activity are: 1) provide assistance to the state policies in the sphere of nanotechnology; 2) development of the innovative infrastructure for nanotechnologies; 3) achievement of projects aimed at creating innovative nanotechnologies and nanoindustries.
Sabio is a European multidisciplinary project involving the emerging fields of micro-nano technology, photonics, fluidics and bio-chemistry, targeting to contribute to the development of intelligent diagnosis equipments for the healthcare of the future. Sabio will address this objective through the demonstration of a compact polymer-based and silicon-based CMOS-compatible micro-nano system.
The SIINN ERA-NET promotes the safe and rapid transfer of European research results in nanoscience and nanotechnology (N&N) into industrial applications. National and regional resources will be virtually pooled to create a transnational programme of research. SIINN will bring together today’s fragmented research activities on the potential risks of engineered nanomaterials for environment, human health, and safety.
SnIRC is based on existing collaborations between the Institute of Occupational Medicine in Edinburgh, Napier University, Aberdeen University, Edinburgh University and the US National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
The project is based on the observation that diatoms, which are small unicellular algae, possess internal silica skeletons that are laid down due to the silica precipitating activity of specialised proteins called silaffins. These proteins have a highly repeating structure in which the repeated sequences are decorated with additional amine and phosphate groups. Whilst silaffins themselves are potent silica precipitants, synthetic peptides corresponding to these repeats will also act as silicating agents and will allow silica nanoparticles to be generated, provided phosphate is also supplied.
