Welcome

Welcome to EUMINAfab Workshop , which will be held on 14th September 2010 in Warsaw, as a satellite event to the 2010 E-MRS Fall meeting. It will be carried out jointly with the Conference Nanotechnologia PL, gathering polish Nanotechnology industry.

The event starts at 17.00, after the Nanotechnologia PL lectures. 

Venue is: Central Campus of the Warsaw University of Technology, Plac Politechniki 1, 00-661, Warsaw, Poland. Participation for registered persons is free. Please register either at this web page or at the web page  Nanotechnologia PL

The event is followed by the E-MRS Fall Meting (see  web page). 

The aim of the workshop is to present the services members of the EUMINAfab network can offer to SMEs and researchers in the area of nanotechnology and nano-characterisation.

Innovative ideas based on solutions using micro and nano fabrication technologies require access not only to high end equipment but also the essential highly skilled personnel. It is not possible for SME’s or even most research departments to justify investment in a comprehensive range of technologies and trained personnel, especially when the need is to try out the feasibility of a new idea or develop a one off tool.

EUMINAfab is a European Research Infrastructure which seeks to address these challenges with the principles of open innovation. The consortium of 10 partners offers no fee access, to 36 installations representing over 70 technologies based at leading micro and nano fabrication facilities across Europe. Accompanying the availability of equipment with an investment value of over 200M€ are 40 technology experts ready to advise from the first concept of a project idea.

Users from European member and associated states may gain access to one or several of the installations by completing a simple application form which is subject to peer review. Costs of access are covered by the project which is funded under the FP7 programme Capacities.

Further details can be found on-line under www.euminafab.eu or by email susan.anson@kit.edu .

The series of talks will give an across introduction to the technologies available, describe the workings of the infrastructure and offer the opportunity for consultation with some of our technology experts.
