Call for Proposals - Theme 4 - NMP - Nanoscience, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New production Technologies - LARGE 2013 FP7-NMP-2013-LARGE-7 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.
