Summary:

The NANOFUNCTION Network of Excellence aims to integrate at the European level the excellent European research laboratories in order to strengthen scientific and technological excellence in the field of novel nanoelectronic materials, devices and circuits for developing new integrated functions and disseminate the results in a wide scientific and industrial community. This proposal will focus on the convergence of Advanced More than Moore devices (Analog-RF-sensorsactuators-biochips-energy harvesters, etc.) for adding functionalities to ICs and Beyond-CMOS nanostructures (nanowires, nanostructured materials, etc.) which could be integrated on CMOS platforms. In particular, the interest of these nanodevices for the development of innovative applications with increased performance in the field of nanosensing, energy harvesting, nanocooling and RF will be thoroughly investigated. This work will be carried out through a network of joint processing, characterisation and modeling platforms. The consortium will work closely with European industry and will feed back data and know-how on devices that deliver the required performance. This interaction will strengthen European integration in nanoelectronics, help in decision-making and ensure that Europe remains  at the forefront of nanoelectronics for the next decades.
