Project details

Total cost:

EUR 3 528 006

EU contribution:

EUR 2 800 000

Coordinated in:

France

Call for proposal:

FP7-ICT-2009-5

Funding scheme:

NOE

NANOFUNCTION addresses the merging of advanced More than Moore (MtM) devices with Beyond-CMOS. Topics: Si nanowires for sensing, on-chip energy harvesting, nano-cooling and porous Si for RF passives.

The NANOFUNCTION project aims to integrate at the European level the excellent European research laboratories in order to strengthen scientific and technological excellence in the field of novel nanoelectronic materials, devices and circuits in order to develop new integrated functions and to disseminate the results in a wide scientific and industrial community. This project will focus on the convergence of Advanced More than Moore devices (Analog-RF-sensors-actuators-biochips-energy harvesters, etc.) for adding functionalities to integrated circuits and Beyond-CMOS nanostructures (nanowires, nanostructured materials, etc.) which could be integrated on CMOS platforms. In particular, the possibilities of these nanodevices for the development of innovative applications with increased performance in the field of nanosensing, energy harvesting, nanocooling and radio frequency will be thoroughly investigated. This work will be carried out through a network of joint processing, characterisation and modelling platforms. The consortium will work closely with European industry and will feed back data and know-how on devices that deliver the required performance. This interaction will strengthen European integration in nanoelectronics, help in decision-making and ensure that Europe remains at the forefront of nanoelectronics for the next decades.
