The 7th Framework Programme NMP (Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies) 2009

The 7th Framework Programme NMP (Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies,
Materials and New Production Technologies) 2009 call for Collaborative Projects opened this week on November 19th. Most of the calls end in february or march 2009.
There are several topics envolving surface nanoengineering,
nanomaterials and thin films technology. Examples includes these topics besides much more:
NMP-2009-2.2-1 Oxide materials for electronics applications
NMP-2009-2.5-1 Light high-performance composites
NMP-2009-4.0-3 Development of nanotechnology-based systems for molecular diagnostics and imaging
NMP-2009-1.2-1 Nanotechnology for harvesting energy via photovoltaic technologies
NMP-2009-4.0-5 Innovative and knowledge-based tooling industry(FP7-NMP-2009-SME-3)

This specific programme will support a range of research actions involving the active collaboration of research teams from all sectors, including industry, SMEs, universities and other higher education institutions, research institutes and centres, etc.
The participation of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) is of particular importance in this workprogramme. A special emphasis has been placed on the participation of SMEs; indeed the aim will be to enable at least 15% of the funding of the Cooperation programme to go to SME participants. Specific research topics of particular interest for SMEs, or specifically targeted to SMEs are highlighted in each Theme, where relevant.
The workprogramme and more information such as how to apply, which countries benefit from funding,etc can be found at the CORDIS web site:

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
