Welcome to the NMP website
With a budget of EUR 1 429 million for 2002-2006, the NMP priority
under FP6 is conceived to promote the transition towards knowledge-based
products and services through breakthroughs in new applicable knowledge
and long-term RTD. The NMP priority supports research projects in
the area of "Nanotechnology and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional
materials and new production processes and devices".
The thematic area and instruments covered
under NMP are described in the
Work Programme. Further information on the
instruments is available.
Industrial research needs appropriate critical
mass and benefits dramatically from an international dimension.
International Cooperation represents an important dimension
of FP6. This involves the opening of the seven thematic areas,
among which NMP, to participation by researchers, teams and
SMEs (Small & Medium sized Enterprises) participation
remains a priority for FP6 and new opportunities within the
NMP priority are open for SMEs.
