Workshop is open for registration


With great pleasure we announce to you the third workshop of the NANO-TEC project.

This event will focus on the SWOT Analysis of the Technology-Design Ecosystem and it will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland on 30 and 31 May.

The context of the workshop: The European Commission ICT theme has funded a proposal for a Coordination Action project entitled "ECOSYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY and DESIGN for NANOELECTRONICS" (NANO-TEC). The project started on 1st September 2010 and its aims are to identify the emerging generation of device concepts and technologies for ICT, as well as to build a joint technology-design community in order to coordinate research efforts in nanoelectronics in the European research area. More details on the project can be found at the project website".

1) The complete tentative program can be found here. As the project aims at an exchange in a joint technology-design community, the attendance is recommended especially to designers and design-related experts who like to bring in their expertise and who like to take new ideas on opportunities by beyond CMOS technologies.

2) Registration and attendance is free of charge! We kindly ask you to register to the event and book your accommodation as soon as possible. The deadline for registration to the workshop is May 15, 2012

3) Hotel recommendations and booking forms: You will find several useful information including a hotel recommendation and the booking procedures online. The booking form for the Moevenpick Hotel Lausanne is liked at the website mentioned above. Deadline to book at this hotel is April 29, 2012.

About NANO-TEC: NANO-TEC is led by the Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology and is funded by the ICT theme of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. There are 11 partners in the NANO-TEC consortium. These other 10 partners are  Valtion Teknillinen Tutkimuskeskus VTT from Finland,  German Edacentrum GmbH and Foschungszentrum Juelich GmbH, Chalmers Technical University of Sweden, the Polish Institute of Electron Technology, Delft University of Technology from the Netherlands, the Greek National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos”, Tyndall National Institute from Ireland, the Ecole Politechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique CNRS. All the partners are experienced in working in large consortia distributed over the European Union and contribute with their organisational and integrative expertise together with visionary research and ambitious goals in nanoelectronics. The scientific and social challenges of NANO-TEC can only be achieved with a constellation such as this, aided by global experts and strong links to industry to  ensure a broad coverage of its topic at European level.
