NANOSTRUCTURED AND FUNCTIONAL POLYMER-BASED MATERIALS AND NANOCOMPOSITES

Objective

The main objective of NANOFUN-POLY is to generate a Network of Excellence designed to become the European reference point on Multifunctional Nanostructured Polymers and Nanocomposite Materials. This objective will be reached through a trans-disciplinary partnership of 150 scientists combining excellence in different scientific areas, where the synergy of international excellence and multidisciplinary approaches will lead to develop and spread knowledge in innovative functional and structural polymer-based nanomaterials and their sustainable technologies. Applications that will benefit from NANOFUN-POLY concern strategic industrial sectors which can be competitive only by using advanced technologies: optoelectronics and telecommunications, packaging, agriculture, building construction, automotive and aerospace, etc. Europe can now develop an integrated approach from macromolecular and supramolecular chemistry to tailored design and advanced processing methods for polymer-based nanostructured polymers and nanocomposites. The integration of a critical mass of resources and expertise to provide European leadership, will be realized by different integrated networking activities; the main one being a joint programme of activities, by creating a progressive and enduring integration of the research capacities of the network while at the same time developing advanced knowledge. The network will include partners outside Europe to help in spreading excellence and at the same time obtain access to knowledge not necessary available in our region. Training, communication, dissemination and transfer of knowledge and technologies developed inside the Network will also be essential components of the joint programme of activities. The final objective is to create a lasting integrated community of researchers at a European level, well connected with the rest of the world and able to lead research, education and technology transfer in nanostructured
