Micro-NanOSystems EUROpean NETwork pursuing the integration of NMS and ACC in ERA

Micro-NanOSystems EUROpean NETwork pursuing the integration of NMS and ACC in ERA

Objective

MINO-EURONET is devoted to stimulating, encouraging and facilitating the participation of New Member States (NMS) and the Associated Candidate Countries (ACC) in the activities of IST. The project has a pan-European focus on one strategic objective in IST, namely micro- and nanosystems.

The project will address the following objectives:
(1) Revealing and promoting the research competences from NMS and ACC which are relevant for the development of the field of micro-nanosystems at the European scale;
(2) Facilitating the participation of NMS and ACC organisations to EU programmes and other activities in the field of micro-nanosystems;
(3) Performing extensive networking at the pan-European scale in the field of micro-nanosystems
(4) Facilitating future research policy in micro-nanosystems in NMS/ACC

The project is put forward by 18 partners, including 8 Western research organisations, which are coordinators of 8 other big projects in FP6. This cluster of 8 consortia is totalling 159 different organisations, which provides sufficient critical mass for pan European networking. This cluster covers also a broad spectrum of technologies and applications, requiring broad multidisciplinary science and engineering and is displaying an exciting potential of cooperation for NMS and ACC.

Activities are organized in four work packages devoted, respectively, to:
(i) extensive networking, using an integrated communication platform;
(ii) creation, maintenance and promotion of databases of researchers, research and industrial organisations, enhancing the visibility of potential partners from NMS and ACC and promoting participation to EU programmes;
(iii) the organisation, with the same purpose of brokerage events and seminars, primarily in NMS and ACC, and also of Forums for policy makers in NMS/ACC;
(iv) organisation of three annual editions of a new European research conference devoted to "Microsystems as a platform for integrating technologies".
