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
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.
