Partner 1, P1, IMT Bucharest (IMT) is the only national R&D actor activating in the field of micro-and nanotechnologies which is disposing of clean rooms (of 100, 1000 and 10000 class) for micro and nanofabrication. Unique is Romania is the orientation of IMT towards micro-nanofabrication demonstrated through establishement of the Center for micro and nanofabrications services (IMT_MINAFAB) launched in Brussels in 2009 and included in MERIL database together with other EU R&D infrastructures. Within IMT may be undergone all the stages of micro and nanocomponents fabrication, from modeling and simulation and computer-based assisted design to reliability tests. The laboratory for micro and nanofluidics is undergoing scientific activity for development and implementation of microfluidic devices, sensors and nanomaterials with applicability in various domains (from medicine to ambient).
Partner P2, National Institute for Research „Cantacuzino” (INC) is undergoing activities of national strategic interest in the fied of ensuring the protection of the essential interests of the safety of population health. INC is performing fundamental and applied research in the field of microbiology, parasitology, entomology, immunology, biotechnology. The human resource of INC demonstrates expertize in scientific fields as biochemistry, immunology, molecular and cell biology, biotechnology, flow cytometry, production and control of biopharmaceutical products, deconvolution and image processing.
