NFFA•EUROPE sets out a platform to carry out comprehensive projects for multidisciplinary research at the nanoscale extending from synthesis to nanocharacterization to theory and numerical simulation.
Advanced infrastructures specialized on growth, nano-lithography, nano-characterization, theory and simulation and fine-analysis with Synchrotron, FEL and Neutron radiation sources are integrated in a multi-site combination to develop frontier research on methods for reproducible nanoscience research and to enable European and international researchers from diverse disciplines to carry out advanced proposals impacting science and innovation.
NFFA•EUROPE will enable coordinated access to infrastructures on different aspects of nanoscience research that is not currently available at single specialized ones and without duplicating their specific scopes.
Approved user projects will have access to the best suited instruments and support competences for performing the research, including access to analytical large scale facilities, theory and simulation and high-performance computing facilities.
The users access will include several “installations” and will be coordinated through a single entry point portal that will activate an advanced user-infrastructure dialogue to build up a personalized access programme with an increasing return on science and innovation production.
The own research activity of NFFA•EUROPE will address key bottlenecks of nanoscience research: nanostructure traceability, protocol reproducibility, in-operando nano-manipulation and analysis, open data.

for proposals submission
The access management structure ensures optimized service provision to users and guarantees scientific excellence and innovation of the selected proposals as collected via a Single Entry Point (SEP) portal with the assistance of the Technical Liaison Network (TLNet).
The first overarching Information and Data management Repository Platform for nanoscience, defining a metadata standard for data sharing as an open collaborative initiative within the framework of the Research Data Alliance (RDA)
