Molecular Machines - Design and Nano-Scale Handling of Biological Antetypes and Artificial Mimics (BIOMACH) - Publishable Final Activity Report

Project ID: 505487
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

The second reporting period M01-M39 of the BIOMACH STREP was steered by the accomplishment of the substantial RTD activities, in particular the remaining Deliverables. In detail, the following actions were taken during the second funding period M01-M39:
(i) Organisation of the BIOMACH Kick-off Meeting the 15th March 2004 at the Institute of Nanotechnology in Karlsruhe/Germany
(ii) Installation of the BIOMACH- Project Office at the INT/FZ Karlsruhe
(iii) successful recruitment of the scientific personal and start of the scientific work within the different groups of the partners
(iv) preliminary on-line action of the BIOMACH website
(v) organisation of the BIOMACH-Midterm Assessment Meeting in Ascona/Switzerland at 19th September 2005
(vi) organisation of the international conference "From Molecular Switches to Molecular Motors" from 20th- 24th September 2005 gathering the leading scientific players on the field of molecular motors within the framework of BIOMACH.
(vii) dissemination of the generated knowledge by the publication of 44 scientific reports in peer-reviewed journals, by releasing five press releases, through three emissions in the German and Dutch broadcast and a multitude of secondary scientific presentations of different levels of dissipation, in particular by secondary reports in non-scientific journals.
(viii) supervision and controlling of the progress of the BIOMACH-Project by four BIOMACH-Project Steering Committee Meetings.
(ix) Cost-neutral prolongation of BIOMACH by three months in order to accomplish several ongoing research projects, in particular in WP 2, 3 and 5.
(x) the BIOMACH-Final Meeting took place under participation of the EC and of industrial partners the 24th April 2007 in Baden-Baden/Germany
(xi) scheduled preparation of all scientific 13 delivrables, two management deliverables, five BIOMACH Activity and Management Reports and two audits.
