(website in Farsi) This network concentrates on providing the researchers and the active industries in nanotechnology in Iran with laboratory services and covers the most of technical fields including engineering, medicine, basic science, agriculture, nano-biotechnology, etc.
ISOTEC (Integrated Organic Sensor and Optoelectronic Technologies) deals with new organic semiconductors and their application in opto-electronic components and sensors. The planning status for the setup of a nanotechnology centre for organic/inorganic opto-electronic and functionalised materials in Weiz (NanoTecCenter Weiz) was recently finished and the next step of actually constructing the research building is underway.
This comprehensive platform is an all inclusive portal, mapping the entire Israeli nanotechnology ecosystem, including over 300 researchers, 80 companies and 40 governmental and nonprofit organizations.
The INNI mission is to make nanotechnology the next wave of successful industry in Israel by creating an engine for global leadership. A primary task for the INNI is to promote fruitful collaboration between Israeli and global nanotechnology stakeholders, particularly for projects that lead to continuing success in academia and industry.
The JONAS Research Network (Joint Research Network on Advanced Materials and Systems) incorporates four European partners: the I.S.I.S. Institute at Strasbourg University, Freiburg University, and ETH Zurich - as academic partners, and BASF SE, as the industry partner. The close cooperation of three leading European universities with BASF enables all partners to extend the scientific basis and their understanding of future materials and systems.
This virtual centre of expertise brings together leading edge academic research and expertise in applied materials chemistry at the universities of Bolton, Liverpool, Manchester and the molecular modelling capabilities of the Science and Technology Facilities Council at Daresbury, all in the UK. KCMC aims to drive industrial growth for the UK chemistry-using industries through the coordination, development and exploitation of leading edge materials chemistry research.
(Spanish/English language website) ReLANS provides a discussion forum and act as a source for information exchange about the issues related to the process of nanotechnology development in Latin America.
The Lehigh Nanotech Network maintains a strong, connected nanotechnology cluster in an opportunity-rich networking environment to: Advance nanotechnology business, partnerships, and workforce development; Connect academic research with business drivers for commercialization; Promote visibility and alignment of the network with government initiatives and policies; Facilitate inclusion of socioeconomics, arts, and education in nanotechnology pursuits; Establish a nanotechnology identity for the membership.
MAFIN aimed at developing a new magnetic recording media at prove-of-concept level for ultrahigh density magnetic storage applications, by using low-cost, environmentally friendly processes and both advanced and new nanotechnologies. The MAFIN project successfully ended in May 2009. Reserach on magnetic storage is continued within the TERAMAGSTOR project.
MAGMANet is an interdisciplinary Network of Excellence that focuses on the magnetic properties of molecular based systems. The consortium comprises 22 leading European players in the field from 8 EU states plus Romania and Switzerland. The entire range of expertise necessary for carrying out research in molecular magnetism is involved, from theoretical and solid state physics, to synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry.
This European Nanotechnologies Project is funded by the European Commission Sixth Framework Programme, under priority 3: Nanotechnology and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional materials and new production processes and devices (NMP). The first level objective of the project is to provide the manufacturing industry with an entirely new platform for manufacturing (i.e. even beyond micromanufacturing), by way of the high productivity, high resolution, direct, one step laser sintering process.
(Site in German) The BMBF supported research project on metal gate electrodes and epitaxial oxides as gate stacks for future CMOS logic and memory generations (MEGA EPOS) refers to the BMBF research program IKT2020 - Elektronik und Mikrosysteme. The consortium is coordinated by Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mikro- und Optoelektronik (AMO) and consists of seven partners acting from basic research to application.
The main scientific objective of the partners of this consortium is to develop new types of artificial materials, referred to below as metamaterials, with electromagnetic properties that cannot be found among natural materials. The results of this development should lead to a conceptually new range of radio, microwave, and optical technologies, based on revolutionary new materials made by large-scale assembly of some basic elements (nanoscopic and microscopic) in unprecedented combinations.
