Call for Proposals FP7-NMP-2011-EU-RUSSIA - Cooperation Programme FP7-NMP-2011-EU-RUSSIA Closed!


This call for proposal is focused in the area of "Cross-cutting and enabling R&D" NMP.2011.1.4-5

Modelling is a crucial element of the design and manufacture of many engineering products – no building, bridge or car is built without extensive use of computational models to test and refine its design. The development of the necessary mathematical approaches that capture the underlying science must be high priorities in any strategy to deliver tangible outcomes using nanotechnology.

While methodological improvements at nanoscale will significantly improve accuracy and applicability, the ability to link these models such that each works in harmony with the other should lead to a new generation of multiscale CAE tools that will integrate nano- and microstructures into the fundamental capabilities for design and manufacturing.

The proposed research should enable future nanoscale system mathematical functions to be identified and transferred or better applied to physical nanosystems for describing radically new phenomena.

The Russian Authorities have announced that 4.5 meuros of funding will come from the Russian Ministry of Education and Science.

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