23 Oct 2017Industrial innovation and knowledge transfer by exploiting the NFFA-Europe facilities are common objectives that the Technical and the Industrial Liaison Networks (TLNet/ILNet) set out jointly to achieve through six primary tasks in the 2017-2018 period. Two of these tasks answer back the actual needs of increasing both the industrial participation in the feasibility studies as well as the success rate in the number of granted access. The strategies enacted by NFFA-Europe in reaching out towards industry are described in the Operational Marketing Plan which is divided into two main sections.
23 Oct 2017This first report on the incentivised knowledge transfer and feasibility work with industry aims at describing the work carried out by the Technical Liaison Network to raise more awareness on the feasibility studies and on the next steps to upgrade the portal to harvest industrial requests. A survey on feasibility studies in the NFFA-Europe offer has highlighted a temporary under-exploitation of this tool by potential industrial users.
18 Oct 2017NFFA-Europe is a Research and Innovation Action committed to providing free access to state-of-the art tools for multidisciplinary, frontier research at the nanoscale: available techniques range from nano-characterisation to theory and numerical simulation. With the aim to enhance the knowledge in the nanoscale area for the European research community, this deliverable explains the action towards obtaining some educational materials freely available through the web-site. This material is based on the edition of a set of short-duration Educational Videos. The videos are being designed by expert scientists in the field and edited by Promoscience. Fifteen videos have been established to cover most of the NFFA-Europe techniques: 6 videos deal with lithography techniques, 2 videos deal with chemical and physical materials growth, 2 videos deal with theory and simulation techniques and finally 5 videos deal with characterization techniques at the nanoscale.
