Call for Proposals - Theme 4 – Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies – CSAs 2012 FP7-NMP-2012-CSA-6 Closed!


The objective of the Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies (NMP) work programme is to improve the competitiveness of European industry and generate knowledge to ensure its transformation from a resource-intensive to a knowledge-intensive industry, by generating step changes in knowledge 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, knowledge-based traditional industries, with a special focus to the appropriate dissemination of RTD results to SMEs. The NMP Theme in 2012 and 2013 will continue to span the spectrum from enabling research, to applications and demonstration activities.
