New window EUMINAfab is launching its 5th call
EUMINAfab: the European Research Infrastructure for multimaterial micro and nano
fabrication and characterization opens the 5th call for no fee access to 37 installations
containing equipment to high end micro and nano technologies.

Researchers from both research and industry based in EU member or associated states may
apply for access to one or more of the 37 installations based at our partner sites across
Europe. Proposals are subject to Peer review; and are intended for publication by the
users. EUMINAfab is funded by European Commission FP7 Capacities programme which
covers the cost of the transnational user access.

Started in March 2009, EUMINAfab has been demonstrated 17 successfully projects by
February 2011. 13% still need to be evaluated at this point of time. With a successful
evaluation rate of about 70% of the proposed applications, the acceptance for user project
is very high. The last EUMINAfab call was followed by 14 proposals.

EUMINAfab offers to users a comprehensive technology profile that is unique even on a
global scale.

It captures technologies of Micronano Patterning, Thin Film Deposition, Replication and
Characterisation. While the Micronano Patterning technologies seem to be the most
attractive ones so far, there are still open resources in the other technologies, especially in
Thin Film Deposition.

We were pleased to see that the new installation Nano Imprint Lithography, launched at
TEKNIKER, could be successfully integrated in the variety of technologies that were asked
for by our users.

Four steps to submit a proposal:
1. Draft your ideas
2. Check our technologies
3. Talk to our experts & varify your ideas
4. Prepare the proposal & submit

Please see our Portal for details of the offered technologies and
download a copy of our user guidelines. Also for questions concerning the application you
will find broad information on the website.

For further information on EUMINAfab please contact: or User office

As there is excellent and close cooperation with the European Technology Platform
“MINAM” we would kindly ask you to take part at the MINAM 2011 Survey.
For all users and manufacturers of micro nano technology a unique opportunity to express
their interest in this still challenging and growing key technology can be provided. Your
feedback will build the cornerstone for MINAM contribution to prepare the “Horizon 2020”
framework 

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
