Final Report - NENNET (High Quality Research Network on Nanosciences, Material and Energy research in Lithuania)

Project ID: 510366
Funded under: FP6-NMP


Funded by the European Commission (EC) under the Sixth Framework Program (FP6), NENNET's ultimate goal was the development of a sustainable, application driven high-level research network bundling competences in materials sciences, nano-applications and self formation in Lithuania and contributing effectively to European Research Area (ERA) activities.

This final activity report describes the strategic objectives of the project, the overall actions undertaken and expected results. The strategic objectives of the project were:
- integration through networking Research and development (R&D) resources on national level to achieve critical mass for generation of new knowledge and participate in ERA activities;
- achieving synergy of R&D and industry by focusing on application driven approach for R&D efforts and contributing to 3 % Gross domestic product (GDP) target.

Project results were evaluated in terms of achieved main objectives of the project:
- integration of the R&D human and material resources on national level;
- contribution to European Union (EU) research activities;
- involvement of SMEs and industry partners to R&D intensive activities;
- impact on social environment.

The following results and activities should be stressed as having strongest impact on overall success of the project: establishment of three National Technology Platforms (NTPs), preparation of the foresight study on 'Future perspectives of Lithuanian research in sustainable energy and nanotechnologies', establishment of web platform for information dissemination and key players integration, knowledge and personnel exchange and dissemination activities.
