Nanotechnology Research - Initiatives and Networks
Showing results 1 - 5 of 5 of initiatives and networks in Austria:
A public funding programme for nanoscale sciences and nanotechnology. The annual public budget is EURO 15 m.
BioNanoNet Forschungsgesellschaft mbH (BioNanoNet) is an Austrian scientific network that specializes in the Key Enabling Technologies nanotechnology and biotechnology on a national and international basis, with the emphasis on (1) nanotoxicology, (2) sensortechnologies, as well as (3) health, safety, (nano-)medicine and additionally supports projects in coordination, management, dissemination and communication. BioNanoNet is a European key player in the field of nanosafety, specialised in developing nano-safety-by-design strategies together with researchers and industry.
The goal of the MultiPlat project is to develop biomimetic proton conductive membranes with nanometer thickness (nanomembranes) through convergence of the number of fields. The primary application of this multipurpose nanotechnological platform is the next generation of fuel cells where it will replace the prevailing evolutionary modifications of the state of the art solutions.
An ITA (Institute of Technology Assessment) Project - Integrative Analysis of the State of Knowledge Regarding Health and Environmental Risks of Nanotechnology. The heart of the research project is to continually survey, analyse and summarise the state of knowledge regarding potential health and environmental risks of nanotechnology.
Within the NILaustria project cluster the consortium will use Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL) to provide a versatile and cost efficient solution to achieve ultra high quality, large area nanostructures. The consortium brings together all Austrian research institutions using NIL and the two NIL-related companies in Austria, i.e. NIL equipment manufacturer EVG and IMS developing a novel method for NIL template fabrication.
