NanoFabNet - International Hub for sustainable industrial-scale Nanofabrication

Project description

International Hub for sustainable industrial-scale Nanofabrication

The EU-funded NanoFabNet Project will create a strong international network for sustainable nanofabrication, whose structure, business model and detailed strategies and action plans are designed, agreed and carried by its international stakeholders, in order to yield a self-sustaining collaboration platform: the NanoFabNet Hub. The Hub will be based upon an open structure, whose elements will be developed and validated in a stakeholder-driven approach; a secretariat at its centre will provide an accountable executive that secures its economic sustainability. It will be a one-stop-shop for sustainable nanofabrication and its successful incorporation into the high-value industries, by bringing together governmental and academic laboratories with large industries and SMEs, and thereby offering a coordination space for collaborative nanofabrication through both P2Ps and PPP.

Objective

NanoFabNet – International Network for sustainable industrial-scale Nanofabrication

The NanoFabNet Project will create a strong international hub for sustainable nanofabrication, whose structure, business model and detailed strategies and action plans are designed, agreed and carried by its international stakeholders during the Project duration, in order to yield an (economically) self-sustaining collaboration platform: the NanoFabNet hub. The registered NanoFabNet membership organisation will provide an accountable, permanent secretariat to the hub; it will be responsible for the implementation of a long-term business plan, and the provision of validation services, trainings and consultations, while collaborative and cooperative activities between actors of the wider international nanofabrication community will be fostered within the open architecture of the hub, and may be supported by membership organisation, where necessary.
The hub will stand for (a) a well-implemented, guided approach to high levels of safety and sustainability, (b) trusted technical reliability and quality, and (c) compliance with and drive of harmonisation, standardisation, and regulation requirements, amongst all of its members and along their nanofabrication value chains. It is envisaged to have a complex, open structure, whose elements will be developed, agreed and validated in a step-wise approach to meet the high-level objectives outlined below. The achievability of these aims to be a one-stop-shop for all matters and concerns pertaining to sustainable nanofabrication and its successful incorporation into the complex, large-scale high-value industries by bringing together governmental and academic laboratories with large industries and SMEs, and thereby offering a coordination space for past, current and future collaborative nanofabrication projects (incl. both EU-funded projects and initiatives, as well as public-to-public partnerships (P2Ps) and public-private-partnerships (PPPs)).
