Innovating with micro and nanotechnology
NanoNextNL is a consortium of more than one hundred companies, universities, knowledge institutes and university medical centres, which is aimed at research into micro and nanotechnology. The total sum involved for NanoNextNL is 250 million euros, half of which is contributed by the collaboration of more than one hundred businesses, universities, knowledge institutes and university medical centres and the other half by the Government of the Netherlands.
The objectives of NanoNextNL are to have achieved the following in 2016:
- to maintain and reinforce the current qualitative and innovative power (at a global level) in academic and industrial research in the area of micro and nanotechnology.
- to be a leader in innovative and competitive micro and nanotechnology products.
- to be a leader in high-tech solutions for societal needs, with a broad basis of support in society.
- to be a leader in sustainable knowledge in the area of micro and nanotechnology
- NanoNextNL projects are clustered in programmes, which are clustered in ten themes. The programmes within NanoNextNL are led by programme directors. They are responsible for the scientific content and the cohesion of the programmes. The programme directors are actively involved in the achievement of the valorisation objectives of NanoNextNL. The programme directors, together with the programme office, are the point of contact for the project leaders.
NanoNextNL projects are clustered in programmes, which are clustered in ten themes. All NanoNextNL projects fall within one of 28 programmes, which in turn fall within one of 10 themes. There are three different types of themes:
- Risk Analysis and Technology Assessment (RATA) (1)
- Application Themes (2-5)
- General Themes (6-10)
The ten themes are:
- Risk Analysis and Technology Assessment (RATA)
- Clean Water
- Beyond Moore
- Nano materials
- Nano fabrication
- Sensors and actuators
