The joint research project of four institutes, entitled 'FUNgraphen' and funded by the German Federal Minister of Education and Research (BMBF), will build an innovation center aiming at the development of unconventional carbon nano materials, novel flat carbon macromolecules, nanocomposites and multilayer systems. Key components are large area ultrathin single layer carbon materials (graphene) with average diameter of around 0.1 nm as new 2D carbon macromolecules produced from natural graphite.
FUNMAT is a newly established national consortium for research within functional materials and nanotechnology and has four senior partners: The University of Oslo; Norwegian University for Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim; SINTEF, Trondheim and Oslo; Institute for Energy Technology (IFE).
GALAXY - GALs interfAce for compleX digital sYstem integration. This EU project proposes to provide an integrated GALS (Globally Asynchronous, Locally Synchronous) design flow, together with novel Network-on-Chip capabilities, that will materially aid embedded system design for a significant class of problems. The project will evaluate the ability of the GALS approach to solve system integration issues and, by implementing a complex wireless communication system on an advanced 45nm CMOS process, explore the low EMI properties, inherent low-power features and robustness to process variability problems in nanoscale geometries.
