FP7-NMP-2011-SME-5 - Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies
The goal is to create materials and
systems with defined properties and behavior, based on knowledge
and experience, reached at nano level. This will lead to a new
generation of products and services across a wide range of
applications and at the same time minimize the potential negative
impacts on the environment and health.
New materials: The research will
focus on developing new multifunctional surfaces and materials with
tailored properties and predictable performance for new products
and processes as well as for their repair.
New methods of production: The
basis for innovation in this area will be new knowledge and
applications that will be aimed at the search for sustainable
patterns of production and consumption. This involves the creation
of appropriate conditions for continuous innovation (in industrial
activities and production systems, including design, construction,
devices, and services) and the development of shared "assets" of
products (technologies, organization structures and production,
human resources) while respecting safety and environmental
Integration of technologies for
industrial applications: The integration of knowledge and
technologies of the three areas of research above is essential to
accelerate the transformation of the European economy and, at the
same time adopting a safe, socially responsible and sustainable.
Research will focus on new applications and original solutions to
meet the most important challenges and needs of RTD identified by
the different European Technology Platforms mentioned above.
