Showcasing industrial multi-sectorial applications of pilot infrastructures for the development of new nano-enabled materials and components


Venue: BEC, Bilbao
Date: 2018.03.14
Hours: 9:00 - 13:00
Price: Free

After the very successful first “Nanotechnologies and Advanced Materials Pilot Projects Test-beds for industry and private investments” session last March during Nanospain2017, it is our pleasure to invite you to a second pilot project-related event in the Basque Region.
On this occasion, we would like to focus this session (within the Industrial Forum of Imagine Nano 2018) on the results achieved or expected, which may be of interest to Industry.

Hence, a variety of multi-sectorial applications of some of the pilot infrastructures will be showcased and will demonstrate the power of nanotechnology and advanced material devel-opment and upscaling in helping Industry innovate.

The Basque Country has a remarkable track record in terms of regional public investments in industrial nanotechnology and advanced materials research as well as in the participation in EU (H2020)-funded pilot projects. For this reason, the first part of the session will showcase some of the activities from the Basque region, while the second part will showcase other activ-ities within the EU.
This session will bring together:

  • Industry: From large companies to SMEs and start-ups.
  • Private investors.
  • Coordinators, exploitation leaders, pilot line developers and key industrial partners from running Horizon 2020 pilot projects and FP7 pilot projects.
  • Delegates from technology centres and other relevant key stakeholders.
  • Regional representatives.
