New Nano-Enabled Products Pilot Project - Annual Plenary Meeting
Friday, November 13, 2020
From 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM
The New Nano-enabled Products Pilot (Nano Pilot) within the Vanguard Initiative will organise the Annual Plenary Meeting on the 13th of November 2020 in virtual mode.
The event will be open to all members of the VI network as well as to interested stakeholders from European industries and innovation ecosystems, such as companies, startups, clusters, R&D organisations, universities, regional agencies and many others.
The objective of the plenary meeting is to showcase the recent developments in the three active demo cases as well as to present three proposals for new demo cases that have been submitted under the call for ideas that has been launched in September.
The mission of the Nano Pilot is to promote interregional demonstration projects based on micro- and nanotechnology with a high TRL (6-7) that can be relevant for European industries. It focuses on a range of several nanotechnology topics going from nanowire fabrication to nano-functionalization, over microfluidics to nano-printing, to photonics related microelectronics.
The application areas of the demo cases in the Nano Pilot encompass a wide variety of markets including agri-food, medical technology, ICT & electronics, energy, automotive and transportation, aerospace, building and construction, among others.
Participation is free of charge upon online registration.
The Pilot Project on New Nano-Enabled Products is part of the Vanguard Initiative a coalition of more than 30 EU-regions committed to supporting the industrial modernisation and the growth of Europe. The Vanguard Initiative brings together regions that are willing to play an active role in the renaissance of industry and to transform regional clusters into world-class clusters. Partner regions are committed to the development of interregional networks, based on bottom-up entrepreneurship and regional clusters that co-invest in new, interconnected European and global value chains. In particular, the Initiative aims to provide industrial companies easier access to (networked) facilities for demonstration, to lower technology uncertainty and speed up market uptake of new technologies, more advanced industrial production and new value chains.
