Welcome to PRINS!

The project focuses on all needed preparatory actions to enable in the following phase the construction of a Research Infrastructure (RI) called Pan-European Research Infrastructure for Nano-Structures (PRINS), with the aim of enabling European innovative research for the ultimate scaling of electronics component and circuits.

The platform will be truly interdisciplinary by allowing the convergence of “top-down” technology, which is today the main enabler of Moore’s law (i.e. transistor scaling), with “bottom-up” methods derived from fundamental disciplines such as material physics, chemistry, biotechnology and particle electronics.

The open access of this infrastructure provided to the Scientific Community will enable the cross-disciplinary fertilization of academic and industrial competences in the areas of nanoelectronics, nanosystems, nanobiology, nanophotonics, etc. The consortium consists of European leading Research Centres, industrial partners and Public Authorities and Funding Agencies.
