Project Details


NFFA-EUROPE will implement the first open-access research infrastructure as a platform supporting comprehensive
projects for multidisciplinary research at the nanoscale extending form synthesis to nanocharacterization to theory
and numerical simulation. The integration and the extension of scope of existing specialized infrastructures within an
excellence network of knowledge and know-how will enable a large number of researchers from diverse disciplines to
carry out advanced proposals impacting science and innovation. The full suite of key infrastructures for nanoscience
will become, through the NFFA-EUROPE project, accessible to a broader community extended to research actors
operating at different levels of the value chain, including SMEs and applied research, that are currently missing the
benefits of these enabling technologies. NFFA-EUROPE sets out to offer an integrated, distributed infrastructure
to perform comprehensive nanoscience and nanotechnology projects from synthesis and nanolithography (with
nanofoundry installations) to advanced characterization and theoretical modellization/numerical simulation (with
experimental installations including analytical large scale facilities and a distributed theoretical installation including
high-performance computing). Coordinated access will be given to complementary facilities co-located in nine well
distributed main sites in Europe, ensuring the optimal match between user proposal and technical offer.
