EU project RIANA: launched! A hub for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with participation of EuroNanoLab

Mar 25, 2024

RIANA was officially launched on March 1, 2024, to offer access to Europe’s leading facilities in nanoscience and nanotechnology that are at the heart of the development of new materials for prosperity and sustainability. The RIANA project provides the user community with a unique platform of 69 infrastructures from 22 European countries, including synchrotron, electron microscopy, laser, ion beam, neutron, clean room, and soft matter research infrastructures as well as high-performance computing. Beyond standard user access to single facilities, RIANA offers a single-point access and a particularly strong user support by a network of junior scientists.

EuroNanoLab is one of the networks participating in RIANA. A number of cleanrooms from Czechia, Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal and Romania will provide access to users through RIANA user portal and host junior scientists.

More than 100 participants gathered on a hybrid meeting in Hamburg on March 14 – 15 to officially kick-off the project. Future steps and the programme for the next four years were defined in two days of presentations and discussions on the six work packages. “The goal is to provide interdisciplinary access to the large and diverse set of outstanding instruments available in RIANA for research and development in nanoscience and nanotechnology. A team of junior scientists, in close contact with experienced senior scientists, will provide users with a comprehensive service from assistance in writing proposals to hands-on experiment support and data analysis” comments Michael Stuckelberger (DESY), scientific coordinator of the RIANA project.

RIANA will engage with academic and industrial users via a rolling call system and promote experiments that combine different facilities and techniques. This combination of scientific tools will enable new approaches and an expansion of the user community, paving the way for accelerated innovation based on nanomaterials.
