Nanotechnology and Environment call

Deadline: 16 November 2010 at 17:00.00, Brussels local time

The 7th Framework Cooperation Programme (FP7) has launched a jointly call on 20th July 2010 for  the “Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies” theme and the “Environment (including Climate Change)” theme with the objective of development of advanced compatible materials and techniques and their application for the protection, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage assets through SME targeted collaborative projects.

Research proposals should develop advanced compatible materials (e.g. consolidants, coatings, substitutes etc.) and/or techniques (e.g. cleaning methods, reinforcement etc.) to secure the conservation of the original objects and/or improve the physical state of the damaged objects. Proposals should also assess the long term behaviour of the materials as regards the durability of the historic assets and the performance of the chosen techniques and also include materials with novel properties such as self-healing or self-cleaning, or materials with an improved resistance to degradation mechanisms.

Indicative budget: EUR 12 million total budget. NMP theme budget is of about EUR 6 million. The maximum EU requested contribution per project is EUR 3.000.000.

The collaborative projects have to be composed by at least three independent legal entities, each of these must be established in a different Member State or Associated Country.
