PATENTProject reference: 507255
Funded under: FP6-IST
Design for micro and nano manufacture [Print to PDF] [Print to RTF]
Total cost:Not available
EU contribution:EUR 6 199 998
Coordinated in:United Kingdom
Funding scheme:NoE - Network of Excellence
The PATENT Network of Excellence aims to establish a new technical community that will address the underlying engineering science to ensure that problems affecting the manufacture and reliability of products based on micro and nanotechnologies can be addressed before prototype and pre-production. The "theme" of the work will be defined as Design-for-Micro and Nano Manufacture and will involve teams from the fields of packaging, test engineering, reliability engineering, simulation and modelling.
PATENT will provide added value by integrating what are currently isolated and dispersed groups with valuable skills, create mass in the field of Design-for-Micro and Nano Manufacture in Europe and provide researchers with access to state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
Finally, PATENT and its associated technical community will support both industrial teams and new Projects where Micro and Nano technologies needs to be:
- deployed in harsh or demanding environments,
- where reliability or dependability must be fully validated or where
- "right first time" manufacture is critical to meet cost and time-to-market constraints.
