NFFA-Europe Infrastructures reaches the 100 projects mark

The NFFA-Europe open access platform has so far approved 103 projects to grant researchers from Europe and beyond access to European infrastructures specialised in different aspects of research at the nanoscale. The ICN2 is among the list of hosts.

Co-funded under the European Commission's H2020 research and innovation programme, Nanoscience Foundries and Fine Analysis – Europe (NFFA-Europe) is the first open-access research platform supporting multidisciplinary research at the nanoscale. It enables coordinated access to advanced infrastructures specialising in everything from the synthesis to the characterisation to the theory and simulation of nanomaterials. This avoids a duplication of resources at European level, while allowing scientists access to the equipment, methods and expertise that they need to advance their research, regardless of their country or institute of origin.

Today in its fifth iteration, the NFFA Europe Infrastructures call has reached the 100 projects milestone. Of a total of 165 proposals to access the facilities brought together in this network of excellence, 103 have been accepted. Ten of these have seen visiting researchers hosted by five research centres on the UAB Campus, including the ICN2.
