The P2N programme aims at strengthening national excellence in the areas of micro and nano-engineering (ranging from core technologies to systems), and speed up technology transfer to French firms in order to exploit the extraordinary potential of the nanotechnologies.
Thus, P2N programme aims to take advantage of the new properties and effects occurring at the nano-scale level and use them in micro-nanosystems that require a high degree of integration and are dedicated to aaplications. Its main objectives are:
The themes of this call for proposal were reorganized so as to highlight the evolution of the stakes. Besides the main domain of nanotechnology and nanosystems, the new theme on simulation and modeling aims at taking advantage of high power computing and advanced theory for realistic and predictive virtual experiments of nanosystems. The theme dedicated to integrative research aims at identifying a limited number of more ambitious projects related to enhanced integration of nanotechnologies in functional nanosystems.
P2N programme is complementary to the other ANR and “Investissement d’avenir” thematic programmes that must be looked at.
This programme is cofunded by the French Ministry of Defense (Direction Générale de l'Armement – French Armament Procurement Agency)
The programme is open to bilateral projects cofunded with Norway within the frame of an agreement with the Research Council Norway (RCN). A specific annex on the web site will present the modalities of the cooperation.
Deadline for projects submission in electronic form: 23/02/2011 à 13h Paris time on the submission web site.
Due to the potential large number of connections on the submission site, it is recommended to provide the requested information well before the applications deadline.
Deadline for documents submission, signed by all partners, scanned in PDF format: 15 March 2012 at 13h on the call for proposals website.
