EUMINAfab, the first European open access facility for micro- and nanofabrication and characterisation, provides researchers from academy and industry to study and process a variety of functional materials. 7 partner institutions offer no fee access to 36 installations for applicants from EU-member states. The third call for proposals is open from 1st September 2010.

Researchers can apply for free of charge use of more than 75 processes in micro and nano structuring, thin film deposition, replication and characterization, covering a wide range of materials. In order to address complex tasks, several installations even at different partner sites can be combined. Interested parties may consult EUMINAfab’s technology experts to discuss their ideas.

Successful applicants in our past calls have already started work. They are doing research in the micro and nano scale for application in fields as physics, electronics, semiconductor and medicine. The EUMINAfab partners are very much looking forward to another set of challenging proposals in this round.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
