Enhanced cooperation within nanotechnology and nanoscience is one of the priorities for the French-Norwegian scientific cooperation. A French-Norwegian seminar taking place in Paris on June 9th and 10th, 2011 will focus on the possibilities for common projects within NMP in the two last calls from FP7. Participants from industry, universities and research institutions in both countries will be invited to attend the seminar. The seminar includes visits of laboratories at Ecole Polytechnique, Syncrotron SOLEIL, and CEA Energies Alternatives at Saclay (20 km outside Paris). The meeting takes place at the French Ministry of Research and Higher Education.
