CRANN joins FP7 consortium providing greater access to industry

CRANN has been invited to join the European Infrastructure on Micro and Nano Fabrication  -  (EUMINAfab).  The consortium is a FP7- funded gateway to a vast array of state-of-the-art multimaterial micro and nanotechnologies. The project has been running for 2 years, but they have expanded the partnership to include CRANN’s specialised Nanotechnology facilities.

By combining scientific expertise with technological capabilities, EUMINAfab provides innovative and efficient solutions to challenges in the area of micro and nanofabrication of functional structures and devices. The programme provides open access (no fee) to 37 installations, including CRANN’s Advanced Microscopy Laboratory (AML), Photonics and Clean Room facilities. It is open to industry and research across Europe. Access must be transnational, and will cover cost of access to facility, plus expert operator, plus travel/ subsistence of user.

Partners include:

•    Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
•    Cardiff University
•    CEA-Liten Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique
•    Fiat Centro Ricerche FIAT S.C.p.A.
