NewSkin OITB Open Call 4 - Extended deadline.

The NewSkin 4th and final Open Call is open to non-consortium academic partners, SMEs, startups and industry. We can provide up to €60K (possibly higher in consortium projects) in nano-enabled surfaces and membranes market acceleration services funded entirely by H2020 NewSkin project with no financial contribution necessary from you (your benefit).

The deadline for applications for the fourth open call has been extended to 7 July 2023, but don't wait until the last minute to apply for this last call.

Please contact the team on info@NewSkin-OITB.eu to make an initial enquiry today, and/or to discuss the services for your potential application. Once you have discussed your access needs with the team, sign up here to the NewSkin platform and complete the short online application form. Applicants can request an NDA before filling the open call application - please email info@NewSkin-OITB.eu to arrange this.

HIGHLIGHTS | NewSkin Days - 25 & 26 April 2023 in Bordeaux (France)

The NewSkin Days 2023 event was held in La Grande Poste in Bordeaux in the last week of April 2023! It was an active 2-day programme, packed with a mix of networking breaks and technical sessions with 80 participants.

A range of sessions highlighted NewSkin facilities, showcases, open calls, and resulting demo-cases and introduced some other related Open Innovation Test Bed facilities, with long coffee and lunch breaks to allow ample time for further discussion and networking.NewSkin Days explored a variety of NewSkin Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) accelerated technologies and market applications, such as: Friction, wear and vibrations reduction; Mass production of textures and coatings; Nano-safe facilities for nano-coatings; Scale-up/testing gas/water membranes; Functional layers: textures and coatings. The NewSkin OITB team and facility users together shared success stories with the audience, highlighting the opportunities for SMEs, Start-ups, research labs and industry to take advantage of these 10 upscaling and 9 testing NewSkin facilities, and route to market services.

Applications for free access to nano-surface and membrane up-scaling and test facilities are now closed.

The NewSkin Open Innovation Test Bed had opened its second call for access to nano-surface and membrane up-scaling and test facilities.

The EU-funded project is offering unique pilot scale prototyping, upscaling, and testing facilities as well as route to market services and access to investors in the nano-surface and membrane materials and technology sectors across Europe.

End-users, producers, and developers (including research labs, start-ups, and SMEs) in the following fields are encouraged to explore NewSkin facilities and services, and apply for free open access:

  • Nano-enabled coatings and nanoparticles for corrosion protective coatings, barrier, photocatalytic, heat reflective, intumescent, tribological, EMI shielding, conductive and other applications.
  • Functional nano-textures and surfaces for sustainable construction, energy storage, corrosion, ice, fouling, microbial and wear protection, tribological, heat transfer, optical, electrical, and biocompatible applications.
  • Components working in dynamic conditions under wear, friction, vibrations, and corrosion including cryogenic, vacuum, and high temperature such as gears, shafts, dynamic seals.
  • Components exposed to harsh environments such as offshore structural elements, wind blades, wings, turbine blades, marine hulls, propellers, pumps, and other components.
  • Selective and anti-fouling membranes and mono-atomic graphene membranes: Scale-up and test facilities for gas/water permeation media: improved selectivity, anti-fouling, anti-microbial, mono-atomic graphene membranes, graphene oxide including pore and functional layer creation.
  • Miscellaneous functional layers: textures and coatings to enhance different products including, optical, medical, electronics, heat exchange, barrier for sustainable packaging and other functional applications.

Nano-enabled surfaces and membranes have huge potential to increase the performance of materials used in many sectors, including renewable energy, electronics, construction, transport, prosthesis, water treatment and industrial components. These Key Enabling Technologies will be the driving force behind many of the goods and services that will be available to the market over the next decade. The main challenge is sustainable, cost-effective upscaling and deployment of these nanotechnologies, which would lead to more wide-spread adoption, reduced energy consumption, and economic gains throughout Europe. The NewSkin services offered are expected to accelerate the launch of novel nanomaterials and membranes, and commercial or personal products using these advanced materials. Advancing the performance and durability of materials will enhance many components including green technologies, addressing several Sustainable Development Goals and leading to positive impacts for society overall.

The deadline for applications was 29 July 2022. Check the NewSkin facilities overview presentation and visit platform.newskin-oitb.eu for more details on the services available.

To apply, it was possible to make an initial enquiry with the team on info@NewSkin-OITB.eu to discuss tailoring the services for your potential application. Next, sign up here to the NewSkin platform and complete the short online application form. Applicants could request an NDA before completing the open call application - please include this in your initial enquiry.
