NANOMAT-EPC Grant Agreement Signed

















Intelligentsia have recently received from the European Commission the signed grant agreement for the NANOMAT-EPC project, which will officially start on 1st November 2013.

Intelligentsia are coordinator of the NANOMAT-EPC project, which aims to support the deployment of societally beneficial nano- and materials technologies in European Partnership Countries (EPC). The project is funded under the FP7 NMP programme (nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies).

NANOMAT will be implemented by a well-balanced consortium of nine partners – four EPC partners and five EU partners. Besides having led the proposal preparation and contract negotiations, Intelligentsia will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the project.

To help faciliate knowledge and technology transfer in nano- and materials technologies, the EPC and EU partners will implement a series of bilateral pilot projects:

• Deployment of high conductivity zirconia anodes in solid oxide fuel cells
• Deployment of hybrid CNT/graphene electrodes for supercapacitors
• Deployment of nanosensory devices for environmental monitoring using picosecond laser technology
• Deployment of magnetic nanoparticles for medical applications

Furthermore, the partners will prepare a promotional brochure about EPC organisations involved with nano- and materials technologies; organise a series brokerage events to facilitate knowledge and technology transfer in nano- and materials technologies; and produce a report with recommendations on how to exploit to nano- and materials related opportunities in EPC.
