IESL/FORTH in the renewed European Research Infrastructure in Nanotechnology
Funding, Nanoscience/Nanotechnology, Research Infrastructures

The European Commission has recently decided the continuation of the European Nanotechnology Research Infrastructure NFFA-Europe (2015-2021) by the NFFA-Europe Pilot (NEP, 2021-2025), with a budget of 15M€. NEP constitutes an expanded network of European Nanotechnology research facilities from 10 countries, which have a high impact on the way Nanoscience is promoted in Europe. The Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of FORTH is a founding member of NFFA and acts as the leader of the joint research activities of the consortium.
