IMT-Bucharest is the coordinator of three SSA (Specific Support Actions) devoted to ACC (associate and candidate countries).

 The first one ROMNET-ERA ROManian Inventory and NETworking for Integration in ERA ( The ROMNET- ERA proposal addresses three strategic objectives of the ACC SSA General call, with the main emphasis on networking the high quality centers of research. The activities concentrate on Romania, preparing its integration in ERA. Restructuring for integration in ERA will be the only realistic chance of the Romanian research to become competitive. The consortium putting forward this proposal has the competence and the authority to address the local scientific community and has the full support of national authorities. The important target groups at the national level are: high-quality research centers, and innovative SMEs. Identifying, screening and networking of research groups (from three separate research systems: national R&D institutes, university research centers, research units of the Romanian Academy) will be focused on some priorities of FP 6, catalyzing the participation to EU projects.

 The second one, "Micro and Nanotechnologies going EAST through NETworking" (MINAEAST-NET, This is a project financed by the European Commission (2004-2006) and it is focused on networking in Eastern Europe (new member states and candidate countries for EU). Information will be disseminated through the web page and Bulletin of Micro and Nanotechnologies ( ).

 The third one, " MIcro-NanOSystems EUROpean NETwork pursuing the integration of NMS and ACC in ERA " (MINOS-EURONET, This is a project financed by the European Commission (2005-2008). MINO-EURONET is devoted to stimulating, encouraging and facilitating the participation of New Member States (NMS) and the Associated Candidate Countries (ACC) in the activities of IST. The proposal has a pan-European focus on one strategic objective in IST, namely micro- and nanosystems. In strictly conformity with the call, the proposal is addressing the following objectives: (1) Revealing and promoting the research competences from NMS and ACC, namely competences which are relevant for the development of the field of micro-nanosystems at the European scale; (2) Facilitating the participation of NMS and ACC organisations to EU programmes and other activities in the field of micro-nanosystems; (3) Performing extensive networking at the pan-European scale in the field of micro-nanosystems.
