The aim of this European research project is to investigate electrical transport in (single) elaborate molecular systems, which are interfaced to the macroscopic world by electric leads.
As a EU FP7 "flagship" project, NanoValid has mobilized the necessary expertise and resources to adequately respond to the growing production and use of engineered nanomaterials in a multitude of technical applications and consumer products. The project will in particular address the question, if and how these new materials will increase exposure on humans and ecosystems.
The European FP7-financed Nanoyou will engage with more than 25,000 students and 4,000 young adults about nanotechnologies through programs in schools, science centres and museums around Europe, and with a much wider audience through this portal.
The Research and Training Network NESPA will focus on the research topic of the development of high temperature superconductor (HTS) materials for power applications.
The project focuses on the research and development of a new bioactive non-resorbable fibre-reinforced composite (FRC) material for load-bearing bone and joint implants in skeletal reconstruction of orthopaedic and trauma patients. A special emphasis will be placed on the development of bioactive and antibacterial surface treatments of the implants. Another objective is to produce novel composite-based bioactive resorbable fixation devices for ligament repairs of the knee and shoulder.
This EU FP6 project aims at developing a nonviral vector for gene delivery, able of a) gene transfection in vivo and on a large amount of cells, b) local and non invasive therapy, c) frequent and easy medication. This nano-device will be based on a carbon nanotube.
This EU FP6 project focuses on an innovative bottom-up approach to fabrication and integration of nanoelectronic devices, based on self-assembling semiconductor nanowires. The primary target is to deliver replacement and add-on technologies to silicon CMOS, such as FET devices for logics and III-V bipolar transistors for RF applications.
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.
