NFFA.eu allows researchers to face complex nanoscience challenges that cannot be provided by any single research infrastructure alone. Combined access to resources of internationally competitive academic and research centre laboratories and Analytical Large- Scale Facilities (ALSFs) is available with new upgrades.
The NFFA Europe research infrastructure integrates nanofoundries (synthesis, growth and manipulation of nanostructures) with fine analysis, theory and simulation. Thanks to the wide spectrum of available techniques and services, researchers accessing the NFFA-Europe facilities can control and design the properties of materials from the nano- to the micro-scale, and even up to the macro-scale.
Thanks to the support of the European Union, a new pilot model of sustainable
research is currently being developed, resting on the following pillars:
