Nanoscience research is a multidisciplinary knowledge-generating activity that aims at an understanding of the laws that govern the behaviour of nano-scale objects of physical, chemical, or biological interest. It studies the fundamental principles of these objects and the phenomena and laws that are particular to this length-scale, and which are usually not encountered in larger (macroscopic) scales. The progress of nanoscience strongly rely on a converging approach to scientific issues where conventional disciplines venture in a new territory and jointly contribute to the building of nanoscience. Inter-disciplinary collaborations are therefore essential and in order for ideas and competencies to associate freely and efficiently, barriers to transnational collaborations must be lowered.
NanoSci-E+ Transnational Call
Europe | Posted on February 5th, 2008
NanoSci-E+ is a body created specifically for the implementation of a transnational call for collaborative proposals in nanoscience wherein research agencies from 13 countries of the European Research Area (ERA) participate. NanoSci-E+ is affiliated to NanoSci-ERA, a consortium pursuing the broader objectives of promoting the integration of the national research communities in nanoscience throughout the ERA as well as the coordination of programmes supporting research in this domain.
NanoSci-E+ is herewith announcing the opening of a Transnational Call for Collaborative Proposals. A minimum of 16 M€ will be distributed for the funding of high-quality projects, possibly complemented by an additional 8 M€ (subject to contract with the European Commission).
The call is open to applicants from Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and the United Kingdom.
To get general information on the thematic scope of the Call, eligibility criteria, submission procedure and key dates, read the official Announcement.
