he FP7 BioElectricSurface project which was led by the MSSI has been shortlisted for "Best Research Project Award" at EuroNanoForum 2013 which is being held this year in Dublin. The aim of the award is to highlight the innovative outcomes of EU research projects and to present how nanotechnologies enable progress in every aspect of daily life: from health to environment, energy, transport, food and communication. The 11 candidates will be voted on and a winner announced at the event on 20 June 2013.
The BioElectricSurface project was funded by the European Commission under its Framework 7 NMP - Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies programme. The project, which was coordinated from the Materials and Surface Science Institute, received funding of €5million for the major transnational research effort involving partners from 7 countries: Ireland, Poland, Israel, Slovakia, Germany, Romania and Denmark.
EuroNanoForum is Europe's largest Nanotechnology and Materials Conference. It takes place every two years and receives funding from the EU's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development. ENF2013 (Dublin, 18-20 June 2013) will focus on the commercialisation of nanotechnologies, exploiting its potential for new applications and taking them further from enabling technologies to end products. Members of the project team will be present at in Dublin at Stand S56 (LANIR).
