In recent years, nanotechnology has disrupted the industrial development of materials with diverse and unique features. However, today, its applications and manipulation continue to challenge companies, universities, and technology centres. The incorporation of nanomaterials represents an added-value to the production chain and in the global markets.

Europe, aware of its potential, has sought to bring this technology closer to their productive sector through the OITB (test bench) concept. The OITB of the OASIS project was created within the framework of the Horizon 2020 programme: A technical-commercial ecosystem of open innovation, granting free access to 12 Pilot Plants that support companies and organisations seeking to develop, test, and use new technologies and high-quality European infrastructures related to nanomaterials.

  • The European OASIS project will cover the entire value chain, from the initial idea to the final product, including technological services such as selection of materials, processing methods, product and process design, modelling and simulation, tests and advanced characterisation.
  • Additionally, it also offers non-technological services that help understand and device the most appropriate commercial strategies to launch new products to the market, to develop business plans, to search for financing, and to protect intellectual property.
