European and Indian nanoexperts want collaborations on training and with industry

Posted on November 3, 2006

The EuroIndiaNet workshop proceedings summarise the discussions that took place at the European project workshop held in Porto, Portugal and can be accessed online at

This workshop aimed to initiate an important step in stimulating EU-India nanotechnology collaborations. The ultimate goal is to set up an EU-India Nanotechnology Collaboration Platform. The project is laying the basis for this platform in the project deliverables.

The workshop provided an opportunity to discuss the ways in which Europe and India may collaborate in nanotechnology and initiated the development of the Platform strategy including its mission, Partnership, focus areas of collaboration, activities, funding and future development. Interested parties are invited to send comments and expressions of interest in joining the platform.


About EuroIndiaNet:
This FP6-funded project aims to promote innovation in nanotechnology through stronger collaboration between EU and Indian scientists and industrialists in the areas of nanosciences and nanotechnologies. It will do so by providing:

  • a comprehensive description of current policies, funding strategies, training programmes and support structures for nanotechnology R&D in India and the EU;
  • a report and online database describing key infrastructure and organizations in nanotechnology R&D;
  • a message forum for establishing and developing collaborations;
  • a workshop where key stakeholders will determine routes to establishing stronger collaboration between EU and Indian scientists;
  • a strategy for the development of a cross-border Technology Platform encompassing research, industry and government.
