On 10-11 October 2023 the NewSkin OITB team gathered in Fraunhofer FEP in beautiful Dresden, Germany for their consortium meeting. We were delighted to discuss NewSkinOITB progress on nano-surfaces, nano-coatings and membranes and to have time to catch up with the NewSkin partners, as well as colleagues who joined us from two other OITBs Convert2Green Flexfunction2Sustain.

The NewSkin OITB consortium meeting was hosted by Fraunhofer FEP. Thanks to the team Matthias Fahland, Cindy Steiner, Stefan Hinze, and Jan Hesse for their kind hospitality and excellent organisation. We got to take a tour of some of the impressive labs at Fraunhofer FEP and to see the labFlex®200 roll-to-roll machine which can be used on many flexible substrates (metal, polymer, paper, composite, etc) to add properties such as hydrophilic, hydrophobic, etc. And also the larger coFlex®600 pilot coater, that can be used to handle wider roll-to-roll processing of different materials. We also enjoyed great views over the 'Blue Wonder' steel truss bridge on the river Elbe at a networking dinner.  

With plenty of time to exchange ideas, have those all important side conversations and enjoy time with the consortium partners this was a very fruitful meeting.
