FP7 NMP 2009 Call – Open – Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies

Dear Colleagues,

The 7th Framework Programme NMP (Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies,
Materials and New Production Technologies) 2009 call for Collaborative Projects opened this week on November 19th. Most of the calls end in february or march 2009.
There are several topics envolving nanotechnology devices, surface nanoengineering, nanomaterials  and thin films technology. Examples includes these topics besides much more:
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 molecular diagnostics and imaging
NMP-2009-1.2-1 Nanotechnology for harvesting energy via photovoltaic technologies
NMP-2009-4.0-5 Innovative and knowledge-based tooling industry

This specific programme will support a range of research actions involving the active collaboration of research teams from all sectors, including industry, SMEs, universities and other higher education institutions, research institutes and centres, etc.
The participation of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) is of particular importance in this workprogramme. A special emphasis has been placed on the participation of SMEs; indeed the aim will be to enable at least 15% of the funding of the Cooperation programme to go to SME participants. Specific research topics of particular interest for SMEs, or specifically targeted to SMEs are highlighted in each Theme, where relevant. The full workprogramme and more  information such as how to apply, which countries benefit from  funding,etc can be found at the CORDIS web site:
http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/dc/index.cfm.

For a quick look in some selected nanomaterials, nanotechnology, surfaces and thin fims topics descriptions you can read below. (go to Cordis website for a full descritpion).

Expression of Interest in participatingin FP7 proposals:
Here at University of Minho (GRF-Functional Coatings Group) I have participated in some FP6 projects and now we are starting a new one funded in FP7 first call.
If you are still looking for an academic partner for your consortia (we can also take with us an national or international SME) please feel free to contact me directly.
Below can be found the website where you can see my R&D interests.
