Other contact information: NANOfutures Romania is a proffesional association of Romanian academic institutions, enterprises and other entitites, acting also as Lighthouse for European Technological Innitiative NANOfutures, aiming to develop the N&N market in Romania for the moderinsation of the industrial sector.
In order to support integration of Romanian industries to successfully profit from nanotechnologies a number of issues
will be address: involvement of the general public and the clear orientation of all undertakings to bring benefit to the community, avoid fragmentation of research and innovation efforts due to the interdisciplinarity and complexity of nanosciences.
The need for a converging approach requiring interactions
between life sciences, chemistry, microelectronics and other sectors.
Also it is an important issue of NANOfutures Romania to bring research closer to industry by using structural funds, regional funds and developing new pilot lines.

Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: NANOfutures Romania aims to implement, consolidate and develop a national pole in the field of advanced nanostructured materials (metals, ceramics, composites) with biocompatible and intelligent properties (sensors, materials with pre-determined corrosion/abrasion characteristics). The main task of the center is to give value to all research results in the field and to sustain on long run the economical – social development by reinforcing the segment of small and medium enterprises (SME's) and by establishing new innovative enterprises (SIE's), by increasing the competitiveness of R&D institutes, SME's and SIE's acting in the target field. It also follows the complete integration in the economic European circuit.
- To realize a fast technological transfer towards SME’s, of the R&D results in the field of advanced biocompatible and intelligent materials;
- To identify the market need technologies, services and products in the target field;
