NoE Research and facilities directed at instrumentation for manufacturing and analysis of single molecules and individual nanoclusters, targeted at life sciences (FRONTIERS) - Publishable Executive Summary

Project ID: 500328
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

FRONTIERS is a European Commission Network of Excellence focused on the crossover between Life Sciences and Nanotechnology supported by the Sixth Framework Program (FP6). FP6 supports research cooperation and integration of research efforts, promotes mobility and coordination and invests in mobilizing research in support of other EU policies. FRONTIERS aims at establishing leadership in research and innovation in life science related nanotechnology by creating structures that build on the existing strengths and facilities of the network partners. The FRONTIERS program is one vehicle created by the European Commission to strengthen the EU position in Nanotechnology.
Specifically the FRONTIERS initiative focuses on creating a critical mass in life science related nanotechnology. The FRONTIERS Program does this by leveraging and focusing existing strengths, expertise, and investments within Europe. One goal of the program is to focus the development of this Nanoscience cluster around industrial problems whose solutions will lead to marketable new technologies, processes, tools and devices that will in turn have great effects on science, industry, and society. The FRONTIERS program has an impressive list of partners (see Table below) located throughout North and Western Europe (see figure on the left) and are represented through approximately two hundred researchers with varying backgrounds that bring together a considerable knowledge of nanotechnology-related life science research.
