NANOLEAP Open Day 2017 Workshop

Thu, 2017-01-19

NANOLEAP project brings together a European network of pilot production facilities focused on scaling up nanocomposite synthesis and processing methods. The network is composed of ten pilot plants distributed across Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland) dealing with the most promising applications of nanocomposite materials in the construction sector. After the end of the project, the ten pilot plants, properly equipped and skilled, will work in open access with industrial parties, specially fostering the collaboration with SMEs, with the ultimate goal of enabling the progress of the product to next steps of technology deployment such as installation of industrial lines and enter in the commercialisation stage.

On 19 th January 2017 NANOLEAP project partners organise an Open Day Workshop to create fruitful debate among research organisations, government representatives and overall Industrial parties about new models of collaboration academia-Industry based on infrastructure and knowledge sharing as a tool to effectively deal with the technological and economical challenges involved in the process of industrialisation and commercialisation of nanocomposites. The workshop intends to promote open, straight and biased communication between all the stakeholders of the innovation value chain, but specially listening to the needs of the Industry of (nano)composites. To this end, the programme has been organised in two parts: first part is dedicated to presentations of NANOLEAP pilot plants and Open Access model; second part is focused on interactive open discussion about pilot production opportunities and challenges.
