Call for Proposals - FP7-NMP-2011-SMALL-5 - Specific Programme "Cooperation" Programme RTD FP7-NMP-2011-SMALL-5 Closed!


The principal objectives of this Theme are to improve the competitiveness of European industry and to generate knowledge to ensure its transformation from a resource-intensive to a knowledge-intensive base, by creating step changes through research and implementing decisive knowledge for new applications at the crossroads between different technologies and disciplines. This will benefit both new, high-tech industries and higher-value, knowledgebased traditional industries, with a special focus on the appropriate dissemination of RTD results to SMEs.

The specific topics address in the call are:

  • Nanotechnology for benefiting environment, energy and health
  • Ensuring the safety of Nanotechnology
  • Cross-cutting and enabling R&D
  • Enabling research and development
  • Innovative materials for advanced applications
  • Structuring actions
  • Development and validation of new industrial models and strategies

All project funded in this call use the funding scheme of "Small or medium scale focused research projects"
