Programme: FP7 - NMP.2011.1.3-1 - Contract n°280779

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 ones.

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.
