    « An open access distributed facility with the legal status of a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC), made up of 3 to 6 centers characterized by specific scientific embedding and local synergies with nearby Large Scale Facilities (LSFs) but providing a unique access portal so as to be an integrated laboratory environment for the development of advanced nanoscience with atomic precision fabrication and metrology. »close
    « Maximum exploitation of Large Scale Facilities (LSFs) by nano-oriented scientific communities by (a) providing a strategic access for Fine Analysis to a wider community of users and (b) raising the standards in sample preparation, definition and characterization for the most advanced fine analysis tools including nanobeams and ultra short pulses of X-ray and UV as well as neutron pulses. »close
    « A common metrology and a widespread technological platform for advanced nanofabrication, synthesis and characterization of nanostructures, available to all scientific and technological communities so as to (a) provide a push forward in the challenge of atomic precision manufacturing and (b) shift the scientific competition towards ideas and intellectual skills rather than among different technological and financial capabilities of research groups around Europe. »close
    « The first Nanoscience Repository of molecular data for functional and complex materials and protocols for synthesis and metrology of nanostructured systems so as to make the results of nanoscience centers more directly suitable for specific applications developed by technology districts as well as for next generation products manufactured by industries and SMEs. Full exploitation of emerging e-infrastructures to achieve high impact and capillarity in making nanoscience outcome promptly available to society. »close


    INFRAIA-1-2014/2015: Integrating and opening existing national and regional research infrastructures of European interest:
    Call: INFRAIA-1-2014/2015: Integrating and opening existing national and regional research infrastructures of European interest.
    Domain: Engineering, Material Sciences, and Analytical facilities.
    Communities addressed: Advanced Communities.
    Area: Advanced material research based on large-scale facilities. This activity aims at furthering the integration of materials science studies, fabrication and analysis (emerging from nanofoundry and characterisation research) performed at laboratories linked to state-of-the-art large scale facilities such as neutron and synchrotron radiation sources and FELs.


    First NFFA DEMONSTRATOR @ IOM + ELETTRA being implemented.
    The first NFFA DEMONSTRATOR is under implementation in Trieste at IOM and Elettra. It will offer to nanoscience users access to an integrated experimental station for materials growth and synchrotron radiation spectroscopy.
    Brussels, May 7-8 2014 First workshop "Big Data & Open data"
    ERF-AISBL in collaboration with Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste , is planning to address the big data and open data issues by organizing a first workshop focused on the common problems that all data producing large scale research facilities are facing and will face in the years to come, and the ways to elaborate solutions.
