Workshop Process

The CANEUS workshop will build from the developments of the ESA program to further facilitate project development, by using a unique “flow-down” structure. The first three days contain 13 technical sessions addressing key issues involved in three broad topical areas: Visions and Roadmaps for (a) MEMS, MOEMS, Sensors and (b) Nanotechnology and Applications; and MNT Integration. Each speaker at the Roundtable session is essentially a leader in the field, describing his or her organization's work in the context of the broader international picture. The Roundtable sessions provide the background material for discussions leading to informed decisions by participants at the subsequent CANEUS workshops sessions. The two-day workshop sessions will use a step-by-step approach to first identify candidate MNT concepts and ultimately formulate the projects, while focusing on fostering international partnerships that bring together complementary core competencies and deliver concrete products.
