ALPhANOV is one of the 16 partners of the Nano2Fun project. 12 PhDs and 5 Post Docs will be trained during the next 4 years.
Nanochemistry of molecular materials for 2-photon functional applications (Nano2Fun) is an Initial Training Network (ITN) Project funded by the European Commission through FP7-Marie Curie Actions. Nano2Fun’s main target is the education of a new generation of scientists for the development, via breakthrough research, of two technologically relevant applications, namely two-photon microscopy (2PM) and two-photon polymerization (2PP), with enormous applicative potential in bioimaging, biomedicine, and rapid prototyping techniques.
Nano2Fun proposes a coordinated effort of 16 first-level and world-recognized research laboratories in the academic and private sectors, located in 10 different countries. The teams have well-established expertise in the diverse and complementary research fields of molecular and supramolecular synthesis, advanced optical spectroscopy and photophysics, theory and 2PM/2PP technological applications.
Nano2Fun’s starting date is 1st September 2013, for a duration of 4 years. A total of 12 early-stage researchers (PhD) and 5 experienced researchers (Post Doc) will be trained.
