Funding, Nanoscience/Nanotechnology, Research Infrastructures

The European Commission has recently decided the continuation of the European Nanotechnology Research Infrastructure NFFA-Europe (2015-2021) by the NFFA-Europe Pilot (NEP, 2021-2025), with a budget of 15M€. NEP constitutes an expanded network of European Nanotechnology research facilities from 10 countries, which have a high impact on the way Nanoscience is promoted in Europe. The Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of FORTH is a founding member of NFFA and acts as the leader of the joint research activities of the consortium.

The Institute of Astrophysics-FORTH joins Europe’s largest astronomy network

Until now, Europe has had two major collaborative networks for ground-based astronomy, one in the optical domain (OPTICON) and the other in the radio-wave domain (RadioNet). These two networks, having successfully served their respective communities over the past twenty years, now come together to form Europe’s largest ground-based astronomy collaborative network. In Greece the network includes the Institute of Astrophysics FORTH and the National Observatory of Athens. During the ORP kick-off meeting on Tuesday 23 March 2021, the Director of the Institute of Astrophysics, Prof. Vassilis Charmandaris, was unanimously elected as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the network, having served as Chair of the Board of Directors of the OPTICON network for the past 2 years. The project is coordinated by CNRS (France), together with the University of Cambridge (UK) and the Max-Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) (Germany) and it involves astronomers from 15 European countries, Australia and South Africa, amounting to 37 institutions.
