The mission of this EU-funded project is to create a European Observatory on Nanotechnologies to present reliable, complete and responsible science-based and economic expert analysis, across technology sectors, establish dialogue with decision makers and others regarding the benefits and opportunities, balanced against barriers and risks, and allow them to take action to ensure that scientific and technological developments are realized as socio-economic benefits.
The ONE-P ('Organic nano-materials for electronics and photonics: design, synthesis, characterisation, processing, fabrication and applications') project has been allocated EUR 18 million under the 'Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies' (NMP) Theme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project counts 28 partners from 10 EU Member States. The ONE-P project will work in the fast-growing world of organic, carbon-based semiconductors.
PRINS is the Research Infrastructure arm of a broader initiative, the ENIAC European Technology Platform. PRINS will bridge the area between research and market-driven applications and provide Europe with the ability to master the revolutionary transition from Microelectronics to Nanoelectronics, i.e. down to the level of individual atoms.
The PHANTOMS Foundation is a non-profit organisation, whose mission is to provide a platform of services and information for researchers active in Nanotechnology and Emerging Nanoelectronics in particular. This mission is accomplished by establishing a network of researchers that exchange experience and their latest results through several channels such as workshops, newsletters, WEB site, etc
Phonasum is a network of researchers and practitioners working in the field of photocatalysis from all around Europe. The main objective is to increase via a concerted European effort the fundamental knowledge of nanocrystalline photoactive materials and development of new products, which utilize self sterilizing and self cleaning photoactive materials in specific industrially relevant application fields such as self-cleaning and anti-microbial surfaces, water treatment, air purification and general hygienic applications.
PHOREMOST is the result of a decision to establish a Network of Excellence in the area of Nanophotonics and Molecular Photonics to address the near- and long term needs of photonic functional components.
Plasmo-nano-devices is an Information Society Technologies Network of Excellence initiated by the European Union in its sixth Framework Programme. Sixteen Laboratories throughout Europe take part in this Network. The focus of the work is the utilization of surface plasmons to develop new optical interconnects and optical components. Beyond scientific work the Network also experiments with new schemes to allocate funding dynamically
It is the aim of the FP6 program PRONANO that the new massively parallel scanning probe nanotools with VLSI ASNEMS (application specific nanoelectromechanical systems) chips inside should empower nanotechnologists and drive the rapid development of nanoscience, leading to new nanotechnology processes and their industrial exploitation. They will secure the future of nanotechnology with economic throughputs leading to new manufacturing industries.
ProTeM (Probe-based Terabit Memory) is an EU FP6 Integrated Project funded by the IST Micro-and Nanosystems programme. Aim of the project is to develop Probe Storage micro-nano techniques and systems for ultra-high capacity, low power, small form-factor memories, with a particular focus on archival and backup applications.
PULLNANO is a 30-month Integrated Project from the 6th Framework Programme proposal for a powerful project focused on advanced Research and Technological Development activities to push forward the limits of CMOS technologies. PULLNANO focuses on the development of 32 and 22nm CMOS technology nodes opening the way to the long term future of these technologies.
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.
