Abstract:
Pre-announcement within Nordic Top-level Research Initiative: Call for proposals within the sub-programme "Energy Efficiency with Nanotechnology"

Call for proposals in energy-efficiency with nanotechnology

Helsinki, Finland | Posted on December 4th, 2009

The Top-level Research Initiative is launching a call for user-driven research projects within the sub-programme "Energy Efficiency with Nanotechnology" in beginning of 2010.

The Top-level Research Initiative is the largest joint Nordic research and innovation initiative to date. In addition to being a Nordic contribution towards solving the global climate crisis, the initiative intends to promote research and innovation within the Nordic countries.

The overall scope of the sub-programme "Energy Efficiency with Nanotechnology" is: "Improvement of the efficiency of future sustainable energy system by applying nanotechnology to the transport sector, energy conversion and use".

Significant added value is expected from this Nordic co-operation by:

* Facilitating user-driven development of sustainable energy solutions enabled by nanotechnology approaches for commercialization
* Enhancing Nordic cooperation and augmenting society-industry-academia interaction and international involvement

The following three research and development themes are within the scope of this call:

1. Nano-based surface-treatment concepts for energy-efficient transport and energy conversion including coatings for sustaining extreme and aggressive environments
2. Nanomaterials for efficient energy conversion and storage devices
3. Nanostructured materials for efficient light emission / light harvesting

Industry involvement as active participant is required. The budget for the sub-programme is 50 million NOK available over three (3) years. The financed projects may each receive a maximum support of 15 million NOK from the sub-programme, and should in addition present a minimum of 50% self-financing and/or programme external funding.

Key activities shall contribute to consolidating and developing the Nordic knowledge base and energy efficient solutions applying nanotechnology. Activities may comprise combinations of:

* User-driven researcc
* Ph.D. and Post-Doc grants
* Mobility grants (between Nordic countries, and between academia and industry)
* Workshops and seminars
* Creation of a common voice in relevant international fora
* Dissemination of results (participation in international scientific conferences)
* Network building on both the Nordic and international level

The expected deadline for pre-proposals is 1st of March 2010. For further information, please visit the Top-level Research Initiative webpage.
