The NewSkin 3rd Open Call is open to non-consortium academic partners, SMEs, startups and industry. We can provide 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 you (your benefit). 

Your 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.

Key Target Industries include: construction, industrial components, water treatments, transport, renewable energy, prosthesis, optics & electronics, packaging, food & beverage.

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.
