Nanotech In Europe: Integration Of Science Becomes Priority

The Centre for NanoTechnology (CeNTech) in Muenster was very much under the European banner, as, from 23rd to 25th of January 2005, it hosted a management committee meeting of the EU-funded nanotechnology-oriented “FRONTIERS” ‘Network of Excellence’, launched last August.

Partners from the network, organised into subject-based working parties, met to take stock of progress and to discuss future targets. “The central aim of FRONTIERS is the overall European integration in research, education and scientific infrastructure,” stresses the FRONTIERS network coordinator, Jan-Willem Weener of the MESA+ Institute in the Netherlands. “Through this approach, we support the motion to overcome a fragmentation of nanotechnology in Europe and strengthen the European economy landscape.”
