The interaction between the design and the technology research communities working in nanoelectronics, and especially in the Beyond CMOS area, is characterised by a diversity of terminologies, modi operandi and the absence of a consensus on main priorities. We present the findings of the EU project NANO-TEC to date, in the quest to bring together these communities for the benefit of a stronger European Research Area. Through this, we present a summary of technology trends and a preliminary benchmarking analysis for a subset of these as an example of the project work. We summarise relevant design issues concerning these technologies and conclude with recommendations to bridge this design-technology gap.
