Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials & New Product Technologies

Funding the NMP research theme will benefit new, high tech industries and higher-value, knowledge-based traditional industries, with a special focus to the appropriate dissemination of research results to SMEs.

Emphasis will be given to the following activities:

  • Nanosciences and nanotechnologies - studying phenomena and manipulation of matter at the nanoscale and developing nanotechnologies leading to the manufacturing of new products and services.
  • Materials - using the knowledge of nanotechnologies and biotechnologies for new products and processes.
  • New production - creating conditions for continuous innovation and for developing generic production 'assets' (technologies, organisation and production facilities as well as human resources), while meeting safety and environmental requirements.
  • Integration of technologies for industrial applications- focusing on new technologies, materials and applications to address the needs identified by the different European Technology Platforms.
