Main Objectives * Establish a durable EU Network of researchers from the European Scientific and Academic Community to form a distributed Centre of Excellence in the Nanoelectronics field (=> 16% of the World eco.) * Carry out a role of representation and coordination of the associated Organizations (=> strengthen the efficiency and increase its impact) * Explore the science and technology aspects for n+4 technology nodes and beyond using joint flexible technology, characterization and modelling platforms in order to identify the most promising topics for future ICT and speed up technological innovation * Activities devoted to More Moore (Ultimate CMOS), Beyond CMOS and More than Moore (micro-nano-bio systems, RF devices, etc.) fields * Perform training activities,University curricula, Workshops to develop high competence levels in Europe ; Participate in roadmap definition * Play an important role in European structuring and programs, in collaboration with Research Institutes and Industry, and strengthen the overall efficiency of the European research in Nanoelectronics
Nanoelectronics Landscape The SINANO Institute is particularly focusing on the convergence of More Moore and Beyond-CMOS, on one hand, and the merging of More than Moore and Beyond-CMOS, on the other hand, for developing innovative nanoscale structures that can improve performance and/or enable new functionalities in future terascale ICs
