NANO2021 aims at enhancing the national knowledgebase within nanotechnology and advanced materials to meet high international standards. The programmes main objectives are to develop sustainable technological solutions as basis for innovation and to adress central societal challenges
The programme board of the Programme on Nanotechnology, Nanoscience, Microtechnology and Advanced Materials (NANO2021) has awarded funding to nine of the grant proposals received in connection with the 15 February 2012 submission deadline.
Funding is available for Norwegian- and bilateral French-Norwegian projects within the priority areas “renewable energy” and “improved health”.
The Research Council of Norway’s Programme on Nanotechnology and New Materials (NANOMAT) is drawing to a close at the end of 2011. The Council has decided to launch a new research programme within the same field – the Programme on Nanotechnology, Nanoscience, Microtechnology and Advanced Materials (NANO2021) – which will be a 10-year, large-scale programme. The initial funding announcement is planned issued for the 15 February 2012 application deadline.
The Programme NANO2021 aims at enhancing the national knowledgebase within nano-technology and advanced materials, including nano-science and micro-technology, to meet high international standards. New sustainable technologies shall lay the foundation for business development and solutions for key societal challenges.
