7th FP call open NMP (Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies Materials and New Produc
- Dear Colleagues,
The 7th Framework Programme NMP (Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies,
Materials and New Production Technologies) 2009 call for
opened this week on November 19th. Most of the calls end in february
There are several topics envolving surface nanoengineering,
nanomaterials and thin films technology. Examples includes these
NMP-2009-2.2-1 Oxide materials for electronics applications
NMP-2009-2.5-1 Light high-performance composites
NMP-2009-4.0-3 Development of nanotechnology-based systems for
diagnostics and imaging
NMP-2009-1.2-1 Nanotechnology for harvesting energy via photovoltaic
NMP-2009-4.0-5 Innovative and knowledge-based tooling
This specific programme will support a range of research actions
active collaboration of research teams from all sectors, including
SMEs, universities and other higher education institutions, research
and centres, etc.
The participation of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) is of
importance in this workprogramme. A special emphasis has been placed
participation of SMEs; indeed the aim will be to enable at least 15%
funding of the Cooperation programme to go to SME participants.
research topics of particular interest for SMEs, or specifically
SMEs are highlighted in each Theme, where relevant.
The workprogramme and more information such as how to apply, which
benefit from funding,etc can be found at the CORDIS web site:
