The EU-RU.NET Project targets strengthened cooperation between leading European and Russian scientists in research and industry in the important field of Nanoelectronics Technology.

For the purpose of strengthening the EU-Russia cooperation in nanoelectronics technology a large number of leading European and Russian scientists have come together in this project including the Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Nobel Laureate, Professor Zhores Alferov, credited "for basic work on information and communication technology" and the invention of heterotransistor and the first double heterostructure laser diode to achieve continuous wave operation. This is in line with the EU strategy of deepening and broadening the international aspect of its science and technology policy. Cooperation with Russia is an important part of it, and now a great leap forward has taken place by proposing a linkage between EU and Russian strategies for the development of nanoelectronics technology, that is an essential element for keeping European industry competitive at global level. To reach the objective of the EU-RU.NET Project, the consortium of five EU and five Russian organisations identifies the most urgent and promising fields for cooperation, sets up several working groups of experts, and supports participation of European and Russian scientists at different events with presentations and the organisation of round tables and brokerage events that bring scientists together to allow discussions and setting of new collaborations. Over ten Pilot Trial Projects carried out in the frame of EU-RU.NET Project help participants to identify the bottlenecks of cooperation and propose improvements. A Foresight study for the future of EU-Russia cooperation in nanoelectronics technology has also been be carried out. The Strategy Experts Group has analysed the results and achievements of the project, developed roadmaps and proposed new actions. Recommendations on linking strategies and strengthening cooperation have been prepared for the EU and Russian officials responsible for the development of nanoelectronics technology.

Objective

A large number of leading European and Russian scientists led by the Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Nobel Laureate Professor Zhores Alferov, credited "for basic work on information and communication technology" – the invention of heterotransistor and the first double heterostructure laser diode to achieve continuous wave operation, have come together in this project with the sole purpose of strengthening the EU-Russia cooperation in Nanoelectronics Technology. This is in line with the EU strategy of deepening and broadening the international aspect of its science and technology policy. Cooperation with Russia is an important part of it, and today a great leap forward has taken place by proposing a linkage between EU and Russian strategies for the development of Nanoelectronics Technology – an essential element for keeping European industry competitive at global level.\nTo reach the objective of the EU‐RU.NET Project, the consortium of five EU and five Russian organisations will identify the most urgent and promising fields for cooperation, will set up several working groups of experts, and will support participation of EU and Russia scientists at different events with presentations and organisation of round tables and brokerage events that will bring scientists together to allow discussions and setting of new collaborations. Over ten Pilot Trial Projects carried out in the frame of EU‐RU.NET Project will help Participants identify the bottlenecks of cooperation and propose improvements. A Foresight study for the future of EU-Russia cooperation in Nanoelectronics Technology will be carried out. The Strategy Experts Group will analyse the results and achievements of the Project and will develop roadmaps and propose new actions. Recommendations on linking strategies and strengthening cooperation will be prepared for the EU and Russian officials responsible for the development of Nanoelectronics Technology. Project deliverables will demonstrate to the public the advantages of cooperation between EU and Russia.
