LEIT – Call for Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials and Production H2020-NMP-CSA-2015 Closed!

Objectives

The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020) is implemented by specific programme and work programmes.

The “Industrial leadership” priority aims to speed up development of the technologies and innovations that will underpin tomorrow's businesses and help innovative European SMEs to grow into world-leading companies. It consists of three specific objectives:

"Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies" provides dedicated support for research, development and demonstration and, where appropriate, for standardisation and certification, on information and communications technology (ICT), nanotechnology, advanced materials, biotechnology, advanced manufacturing and processing and space.

Emphasis is being placed on interactions and convergence across and between the different technologies and their relations to societal challenges. User needs shall be taken into account in all these fields.

1.2 Nanotechnologies
The specific objective of nanotechnologies research and innovation is to secure Union leadership in this high growth global market, by stimulating scientific and technological advancements and investment in nanotechnologies and their uptake in high added value, competitive products and services across a range of applications and sectors.

Actions

Actions foreseen within this call for proposals include the following topics:

  • NMP-32-2015: Societal engagement on responsible nanotechnology. Transparency, knowledge and societal engagement are key factors in addressing societal concerns regarding the use of nanotechnology, including nanomaterials. An essential element of a safe and responsible nanotechnology governance is an effective and informed dialogue with all stakeholders, enhancing public confidence in nanotechnologies.
  • NMP-38-2015: Presidency events. An integral part of the LEIT-NMP part of Horizon 2020 is to organise events of a major strategic nature. Examples are events organised together with successive EU presidencies; and also EuroNanoForum, Manufuture, NMP Conferences and World Manufacturing Forum. The proposed Support Action(s) should contribute to creating better synergy between initiatives launched by the Commission and by the Member States, to the benefit of the coherence of the overall actions within the field of research and innovation within the Industrial Leadership part. Member States which will hold a forthcoming Presidency of the European Union are Latvia and Luxemburg (2015 Presidencies) and they may be particularly interested in this topic.
