H2020 project NEREID has been launched to map the future of European Nanoelectronics

ICN2 is one of the members of this H2020 Cooperation and Support action coordinated by the Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble (INP). Its main objective is to develop a roadmap for the European Nanoelectronics industry, starting from the needs of applications and leveraging the strengths of the European eco-system.

 

The NEREID project (“NanoElectronics Roadmap for Europe: Identification and Dissemination”) is a Cooperation and Support action that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Its objective is to develop a roadmap for the European Nanoelectronics industry, starting from the needs of applications and leveraging the strengths of the European eco-system. In addition, it will aim to an early benchmark/identification of promising novel nanoelectronic technologies, and identify bottlenecks all along the innovation (value) chain. The ICN2 Phononic and Photonic nanostructures (P2N) group, led by ICREA Research Prof Dr Clivia Sotomayor-Torres, is one of the partners of this project coordinated by the Institut Polytechnique De Grenoble (INP).

Highlights of the NEREID project, which has a duration of three years, will be three general workshops aiming at gathering the needs of the application sectors, with experts from the fields of Energy, Automotive, Medical/Life science, Security, IoT/Smart connected objects, Mobile convergence, Digital Manufacturing. Specific workshops will define the roadmaps of the different technology sectors in the areas of More Moore, More than Moore, Beyond-CMOS, Heterogeneous Integration and System Design, Equipment and Manufacturing Science, with a broad involvement of leading experts from industry and academia.

The first General Workshop will be organized by Grenoble INP and SINANO Institute on April 12-13, 2016 in Minatec, Grenoble, France, with the purpose to establish the dialogue between application and technology experts. Read more about the project on www.nereid-h2020.eu.
