Project Title: European and Chinese Platform for Nano Handling, Assembly and Manufacturing (ECNANOMAN)
Project No.: 269219
Project Funding: 390.6K Euros
Project Duration: 1 August 2011 to 31 July 2014
Program: FP7-PEOPLE-2010-IRSES
Funding Body: European Commission 


The project ''European and Chinese Platform for Nano Handling, Assembly and Manufacturing (ECNANOMAN)'' focuses on the staff exchange between the partners of EU and China, and on the development of new nano handling, assembly and manufacturing technologies. It meets the objectives and requirements of the Marie Curie Action: International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES), by setting up multiple bridges between European and Chinese institutions. The ultimate goal of ECNANOMAN is to establish a long-term research cooperation platform between Europe and China in an emerging field with promising applications in many areas such as nanomedicine, environmental science, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and manufacturing. The synergistic approach made by ECNANOMAN will keep the consortium's leading position in the world for potential major scientific and technological breakthroughs. The project is divided into five inter-related work packages: (1) Setup of knowledge base and road mapping, (2) Nano handling tools and techniques, (3) Nano assembly and manufacturing, (4) Dissemination and exploitation, and (5) Project management. The workpackages integrate all activities that will lead to the completion of all the project objectives within 36 months.
