Provisional Work Programme 2007, Cooperation, Theme 4: Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials And New Production Technologies - NMP (European Commission C(2006) 6839)

Funded under: FP7-NMP

Abstract

The core objective of Theme 4 "Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies - NMP" is to fund research, development, demonstration, and coordination projects that will effectively contribute, either on their own or by enabling further development, to the transformation of European industry from a resource-intensive to a knowledge-intensive industry, thus meeting the challenge imposed by the new industrial revolution and competition at global level. This transformation is essential in order to produce, in a sustainable manner, high added value products, embedding European cultural values through design; and this in turn is essential to not only stop the relocation of European industry, but also create new industries, and hence growth and employment. Furthermore, it should be driven and supported by a competitive knowledge production capacity at the global level.
The NMP Theme pursues the overall objective of enhancing the competitiveness of European industry by generating step changes in a wide range of sectors and implementing decisive knowledge for new applications at the crossroads between different technologies and disciplines. Research will be focused on generating high added-value products and related processes and technologies to meet customer requirements as well as growth, public health, occupational safety, environmental protection prerequisites, and societal values and expectations. The competitiveness of more mature industries is also largely dependent on their capacity to integrate knowledge and new technologies.
