Published on 02 Aug 09:21 (almost 2 years ago) by AquaTT

The NewSkin 2nd Open Call is now closed and the evaluation of the second batch of applications is underway. Thank you for all enquiries and applications from academics, SMEs, startups and industry across Europe to use our H2020 funded cutting-edge upscaling and testing facilities. The team look forward to working with the successful applicants on characterising, upscaling, testing and/or providing route-to-market services for your innovative nano-surface and membrane technologies accelerating them towards market.

For those who have yet to apply we have 2 remaining Open Calls. We can provide successful Open Call applicants with up to €60K (possibly higher in consortium projects) in nano-enabled surfaces and membranes market acceleration services funded entirely by H2020 NewSkin project with no financial contribution necessary from the applicant (their benefit). 
Applicants’ proposed use of the facilities must leverage the capabilities of the open innovation test-bed facility as we want to demonstrate our facilities to a broad range of industry and academic potential end users (our benefit).
Materials we work with include: steel, metals, filtration membranes, ceramics, composites, polymers, coils, films, foils, envelops, packaging, marine transport, renewables, PV panels, wind-turbines, dynamic components, seals, and more. 
Facilities we have to offer include: 
  • Nano-enabled coatings and nanoparticles for corrosion protective coatings, barrier, photocatalytic, heat reflective, intumescent, tribological, EMI shielding, conductive and other applications. 
  • Functional nano-textures and surfaces for sustainable construction, energy storage, corrosion, ice, fouling, microbial and wear protection, tribological, heat transfer, optical, electrical and biocompatible applications. 
  • Components working in dynamic conditions under wear, friction, vibrations, and corrosion including cryogenic, vacuum, and high temperature such as gears, shafts, dynamic seals. 
  • Components exposed to harsh environments such as offshore structural elements, wind blades, wings, turbine blades, marine hulls, propellers, pumps, and other components. 
  • Selective and anti-fouling membranes and mono-atomic graphene membranes: Scale-up and test facilities for gas/water permeation media: improved selectivity, anti-fouling, anti-microbial, mono-atomic graphene membranes, graphene oxide including pore and functional layer creation. 
  • Miscellaneous functional layers: textures and coatings to enhance different products including, optical, medical, electronics, heat exchange, barrier for sustainable packaging and other functional applications.
  • Route-to-Market services: including Life Cycle Analysis, nano safety assessment, business planning, and networking.
