Successful European Cooperation
AMICOM is a FP6 Network of Excellence in RF-MEMS. 27 research teams from 14 countries (including Poland and Romania) are involved in this project.
The network of excellence is structured into four groups of activities:
2. Joint RF-MEMS research activities: co-ordinate the available research efforts in order to optimise the use of resources toward key issues in the field:
This group of activity is completed with survey focusing on “Devices and component” and “Circuit and microsystems”.
3. Training and Dissemination: enforce a multidisciplinary RF-MEMS oriented education and increase public awareness
4. Exploiting RF-MEMS: bridging the available know-how in the field with the industrial present and future challenges
Dissemination actions in the AMICOM Project
2nd AMICOM Summer School, 28 September-1 October 2005, Sinaia, Romania was organized by FP6 NoE "Advanced MEMS for RF and Millimeter Wave Communications-AMICOM" (http://www.amicom.info) during three and a half days. The first day was dedicated to “Introduction in RF, for those from a processing background” and the second day to “Introduction to Processing, for those from an RF background”. The rest of the lectures were focused on RF MEMS and “Vision for the future”. 39 participants representing 18 partners from 10 countries were present. 19 tutorials given by 14 speakers were presented. 19 Ph D and Master Students were among the participants and 4 PhD student presentations were sustained. All participants received a “Certificate of attendance”.
