The Second MINAEAST-NET Workshop within the MINAEAST-NET EU project took place in Athens, Greece, organized by the Institute for Microelectronics (IMEL), National Centre of Scientific Research “Demokritos”, on 15 th of July 2005.

The workshop was aimed to intensify the collaboration with Eastern Europe in the micro-nanotechnologies domain.

During the first part of the workshop, the hosts from IMEL/ NCSR “Demokritos” presented their research activities, experience in international projects and networks, research projects, the collaboration with industry.

A tour of the IMEL laboratories was provided by Dr. Nassiopoulou between the two parts, showing the main institute facilities.

During the second part, the Eastern participants presented recent research results obtained in the MNT domain, current projects and also the human and material potential, together with possibilities for cooperation.

20 participants from different countries, including the MINAEAST-NET project partners, attended the event. 2 participants from Bulgaria and Hungary benefited from travel grants for attending the workshop, offered by the MINAEAST-NET project.

The event offered the participants the chance to identify better the possibilities for cooperation and to establish new contacts.
