Call for European transnational research proposals in nanoscience
5 February 2008
Nanoscience Europe (NanoSci-E+) has announced a call
for proposals for nanoscience research funding in Europe.
include organisations from at least three qualifying European countries
(Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Republic of Ireland, Italy,
Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and the United Kingdom).
A minimum of €16m will be distributed for the funding of high-quality
projects, possibly complemented by an additional €8m (subject to contract

from 1 January 2009.
Letters of Intent must be submitted online at
by 27 March 2008, and full proposals by 23 July 2008.
limited to ground-breaking nanotechnology research projects that address the
issue of interfacing functional nano-objects or nano-materials.
The aim of this Call is to enable scientists working in nanoscience in
different countries in the ERA to build an effective collaboration on a
common research project based on ambitious and original ideas at the
frontier of knowledge.
