"The aim of the MIMOMEMS project is to bring the research activity in RF and Optical-MEMS at IMT-Bucharest to the highest European level and create a European Centre of Excellence in Microwave, Millimetre Wave and Optical Devices, based on Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) for Advanced Communication Systems and Sensors The main objectives of the project support high level research activities in RF and Optical MEMS, through the following objectives: i. Know-How and Experience Exchange: Twinning actions with two research centres: a) LAAS-CNRS Toulouse with a strong expertise in silicon based millimetre wave microsystems and photonic devices, and b) FORTH-IESL-MRG Heraklion with excellent knowledge of IIIV’s ii. Recruitment by IMT:. Post-Docs. with expertise in nanophotonics and microwaves, will be hired for increasing IMT s human potential iii. Development and Upgrade of Research Equipment: About 50% of project founds will be used for the upgrading and purchasing new equipments (on wafer characterization up to 110GHz, new nano-characterization equipment –SNOM, etc) iv. Workshop, Conference Organisation and Policy Development. Organize of scientific events, thematic sessions and seminars supporting knowledge transfer and research policy development v. Dissemination and Promotional Activities: Promotion of activities and results through a project website; publication in reviewed journals and conferences; organization of workshops, FP7 proposals. The MIMOMEMS project will directly address research objectives from FP7 Work Programmes: 1.Capacities - Part 4 - Research Potential. Activity: 4.1.Unlocking and developing the research potential in the EU´s convergence regions and outermost regions 2.Cooperation – Theme 3 - ICT. Challenge 3: Components, systems, engineering:3.1; 3.5; 3.6 Objective.3.1: Next-Generation Nanoelectronics Components and Electronics Integration Objective.3.5: Photonic components and subsystems Objective 3.6: Micro/nanosystem"
