Routes to Bose-Einstein Condensation at Room Temperature - ROBOCON 2009-12 was started  in frame of Marie Curie Mobility program IRSES under scientific coordination ofI.Lukyanchuk. The project consortium includes European and Partner institutions from five countries
- University of Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, France (scientific coordination),
- University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy (administrative coordination)
- University of Exeter, Exeter, UK                                     
- University Cadi Ayyad, Marrakech, Morocco.               
- Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Campinas, Brazil

and has the objective  to consider the possibility and realisation of such phenomena as Bose-Einstein condensation in three, on first glance different systems:

► Carbon-based systems: Graphite, Graphene and Nanotubes

► Exciton-Polariton excitations in semiconductors

► Perovskite Oxides close to Metal-Insulator transition.  

that, according to the very recent studies demonstrate the very common feature: the Bose statistic of current (mass) carriers and have the tendency to form the condensed superconducting or/and superfluid state at high temperatures.

It is this common feature that unify the leading experts on these materials in the proposed Multidisciplinary Marie Curie FP7-PEOPLE-IRSES project ROBOCON which  has the final objective to understand the realization of BEC phenomena on the experimental and theoretical level in the proposed systems and elaborate the practical recommendations for their further applications in High-Tech industry: polariton lasers for CD and DVD players and laser printers, novel Carbon- and Oxide- based microelectronics of computer RAM and CPU devices etc.

 Basing on this common subject we created the distributed consortium (network) of partner institutions, located in EU countries (France, UK, Italy) and in Eligible Third Countries (Morocco, Brazil). Each of them has its own specialization and related with others by virtue of already existing collaborative links, eventually supported (or being supported) by different bilateral programs.  In course of the project we suppose to amplify and order these collaborations and create the new links between partners under central common idea of studying and optimization of mechanisms and realization of BEC. Series of bilateral visits, training workshops and meetings are previewed for this purpose.
