Presentation

The SpinTronic Factory (STF) is a European network, founded in 2016, which mission is to promote European research and innovation in spintronics. The network is based on a legal Memorandum of Understanding involving academic and industrial actors from all over Europe. Today STF includes 87 partners from 17 different countries.

New bodies may join the SpinTronic Factory network. To do so, please fill-in a Letter of commitment, to be sent back to the STF director.

Objectives

The main objectives of the SpinTronicFactory are:

  • Increase the industrial impact of spintronic applications in the European Union
  • Develop synergies among Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) and different H2020 programs (FET, NMBP, ICT, ITN, ECSEL)
  • Create links with other industrial networks as for example EFFRA, AENEAS, etc.
  • Build new synergies among partners and potential consortia for future EU calls
  • Improve visibility of spintronics in EU and work on the related dissemination

Note for FET, NMBP, ICT, ITN and ECSEL programs: Future and Emerging Technologies; Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing; Information and Communication Technologies; Innovative Training Networks; Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership)
