Welcome on the QUANTIHEAT European research project website
QUANTItative scanning probe microscopy techniques for HEAT transfer management in nanomaterials and nanodevices
The QUANTIHEAT project tackles issues related to thermal metrology at the nanoscale and aims at delivering validated standards, methods and modeling tools for nanothermal designs and measurements. This 4-year project brings together 20 partners from 7 different European countries and 2 associated countries. It has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n°604668.
30-Month Quantiheat review and consortium meeting on 15-17 June 2016 in Brussels, Belgium
The review meeting with the European Commission took place in Brussels on Wednesday 15th June 2016 morning reflecting the end of the 2nd period of the project (End of May 2016). The Project Officer and the Project Technical Advisor from the European Commission were very satisfied of the work progress of Quantiheat presented by the WP leaders and the project office. It is a wonderful acknowledgment of all the partners’ efforts and involvement.
The 30-Month Consortium meeting took place after the review meeting and gathered 34 participants, including the EC Project Technical Advisor. The new characterization results on passive & active samples and on materials from the project industrial partners but also the work progress in the other tasks of the project were presented. Some workshops were organized the last day to discuss specific topics and/or materials. This meeting was again an opportunity to share a lot of information and results and to develop team-work.

24-Month Quantiheat meeting on 05-06 November 2015 in Czech Republic
The QUANTIHEAT project started two years ago and work has progressed well.
The 24-Month Consortium meeting was the opportunity to present many characterization results on passive and active samples selected and designed for the project, and also the first results on materials of industrial partners. These results are encouraging and possess strong potential for further development.
The meeting was hosted by the Czech Metrology Institute (CMI) and gathered 36 participants, including the EC Project Technical Advisor.
