February 22-23: EU Industry Days REPORT

INSPIRED was represented at the EU Industry Day by the Nanotechnology Industries Association. 


The EC-hosted event focussed on all aspects for Europe's industrial development and how it needs to progress in future.  Manufacturing infrastructure was a high priority within the event, with the EU seeking to build on platforms such as pilot line projects, of which INSPIRED is one. 


With FP9 now in planning, policy makers at regional, national and European level are working on potential roadmaps, with strong feedback from industry for increased coherence and defragmentation of programmes and funding.
