INTEGRATED EU STRATEGY, SERVICES AND INTERNATIONAL COORDINATION ACTIVITIES FOR THE PROMOTION OF COMPETITIVE AND SUSTAINABLE NANOFABRICATION INDUSTRY
Nanofabrication has the potential to make a significant impact in a multitude of diverse areas and to tackle major socio-economic challenges for an ever-improving yet affordable health care, higher standards of living and quality consumer goods, cleaner energy and transport.
Given the above-mentioned potential of nanofabrication, the present project SUSNANOFAB tackles all nanofabrication technological and non-technological issues of the nanofabrication value chain, facilitating interactions among stakeholders. The global target of SUSNANOFAB project is to put in place an integrated concerted action on nanofabrication sustainable in the long term.
At a strategic level, the project will find a common strategy to enable all pre-competitive conditions for the successful market uptake of nanofabricated products and solutions. This will be reached using a structured roadmapping methodology and involving external experts in Coordination Groups. At operational and end-users’ level, the project will provide affordable services and easy access point to infrastructures and knowledge to EU stakeholders, and in particular to SMEs. This will be reached using different integrated methodologies such as the organisation of a large set of training and brokerage workshops and services and the development of a Digital Platform, which will perform in an interoperable manner with ongoing platforms and initiatives (e.g. the European Network for Pilot Production Facilities and Innovation Hubs, the European Material Modelling Council etc.).
To promote international cooperation SUSNANOFAB Consortium includes 3 US partners not requesting EU funding. To involve a high number of key actors, the project has already achieved the support of several companies, research and education establishments, European Technology Platforms, clusters and industrial associations, national, regional and international nanofabrication related entities.
