This is the web page of the national (Romanian) micro and nanotechnology network ROMNET-NANO sustained by the
project ROMNET-ERA



Financed (2001- 2004) by the national RTDI programme MATNANTECH (New materials, micro- and nanotechnologies)

BIONANONET is a national network bringing together R&D, clinics, SMEs groups involved in biomedicine. This approach evolves as a result of the decision to take into consideration the main EU RTD (research and technological development) trends and to concentrate on specified areas in the national science policy. The network focuses on synergistically catalyzing different competences (microengineering, physics, biology, chemistry) in Romania, with a view to integrate the ‘science without borders’ initiative, according to European science policy. Starting as an institutional nucleus (R&D institutes, Academy centres, universities, administrative and commercial groups), it will constantly develop to create a wide specialised database containing scientific research and technological development projects and trends, information on new approaching and activities, existing facilities and infrastructure. The mean way to reach the strategic goal of integrating the national research groups into the ‘European Research Area’ is represented by the ability:

  • to join and stir up human resources (mainly youngsters)
  • to develop intensive and comprehensive electronic communication among professional groups
