Nanotechnology in construction engineering research grants

(Nanowerk News) The German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) has issued a call for research projects that deal with nanotechnology applications in the construction industry - "Nanotechnology in construction engineering - NanoTecture." (in German).
Goal of this research grant program is the development of new or significantly improved building materials, products, and processes through nanotechnologies.
Supported research will focus on the following areas:
– Increased durability of building components and elements (roofs, doiors, windows, etc.)
– Reduced energy use
– Improved indoor climate, comfort and security
– Improved energy efficiency and life time of concrete-based materials
– Improved durability and wear of road pavings.
Deadline for initial applications is November 30, 2007. Applying individuals or institutions have to be based in Germany.
