The SpinTronicFactory (STF)

The SpinTronicFactory is a European network founded in 2016, with mission to promote research and innovation in Europe based on spintronics. It is based on a legal Memorandum of Understanding involving academic and industrial actors all across Europe.

New bodies may join the SpinTroniFactory network. To do so, please fill-in a Letter of commitment, to be sent back to the director of SpinTronicFactory. The deadline to do so is 8th March 2017.


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)
