European Nanochallenge 2011 - €600K Funding Opportunity Final Call!

This post comes with a very short notice as the deadline to apply for this call is today at midnight GMT. We are promoting an exciting initiative in the Nanotech and Polymer-materials fields and thought that members of this community might be interested in joining.
Nanochallenge and Poymerchallenge is an international business plan competition organized by Veneto Nanotech (the Italian Cluster of Nanotechnology), IMAST (Technological District on polymeric and composite materials engineering and structures) and Intesa Sanpaolo.

The competition is open to anyone with with an innovative and high-growth nanotech-based or polymer-based materials business idea or startup. The top 12 selected startups will have the opportunity to take part in a unique international investor roadshow and compete for two Grand Prizes in cash and services worth a total of €600,000

As I said the deadline for submission is tonight at midnight GMT, but submission is free and should only take a few minutes. I am attaching the Executive Summary template so you can see what is required and, if interested, you can submit directly from

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
