European Commission and
to
the
Programme Committee.


Suggesti
on f
rom WP 2011: INDICATIVE PRIORITIES FOR FUTURE CALLS

Broadly speaking, future calls of the NMP Theme will continue to span the spectrum from
enabling research to applications and demonstration activities. There will be an increasing
emphasis on industr
ial applications, although longer
-
term, enabling research is also seen as
a source of innovation. Application
-
oriented topics will continue to be implemented mainly
through large integrating projects. Since the beginning of FP7, such projects have absorbed

more than half of the total NMP budget.
Demonstration activities
, already addressed in
PPP topics, are expected to receive more attention, possibly going beyond pilot
implementations in industrial settings. For nanotechnologies, in particular, demonstrati
on
activities will continue to explore ways of evolving from a laboratory environment into
industrial scale production. Similarly, further efforts will be made to enhance industrial
participation further, with a view to introducing more innovation
-
related
elements. By using
SME
-
targeted collaborative projects and appropriate topics, the NMP theme will continue to
provide strong support to
SME participation
, which is currently around 23% in budgetary
terms in projects funded under the NMP theme. The topics i
n question will continue to be
defined with the aim of reinforcing the S&T base of SMEs and validating innovative solutions.
International collaboration

will continue to be supported, in pursuing fundamental, global
objectives, for instance understanding f
undamental properties, access to infrastructures,
metrology and standardisation, and validating environmentally friendly materials.


The NMP Theme will provide strong support to the
Europe 2020 strategy
, which calls for
smart, sustainable and inclusive gro
wth. The NMP Theme plays a crucial role in supporting
smart growth

and supporting the recovery of EU industry: it will continue to implement the
recovery package through PPPs, and to respond to needs identified by industry
-
oriented
ETPs. With regard to
sus
tainability and societal benefits
, the emphasis will continue to be
on resource and energy efficiency, protection of the environment and improvements in health
care.


The following areas are expected to be targeted. This list is indicative, not binding an
d not
necessarily exhaustive. The PPP topics in particular will follow the strategic roadmaps
identified by the industrial advisory groups.


In support of the Factory of the Future: high
-
performance manufacturing, human
-
robot
interaction, adaptive manufact
uring machines for optimal energy use.


In the area of energy efficient buildings: components, retrofitting (e.g. lighting and HVAC),
business models, eco
-
friendly building materials, district heating.


To address needs in energy: nanotechnologies for effi
cient energy storage and energy
efficiency; materials for extreme conditions, batteries and photovoltaics.
