Collaboration, advanced materials
|Coordinator||SwedNano Tech AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 1 100 000|
|Project duration||December 2018 - July 2019|
Purpose and goal
The aim of this project has been to further develop a long term strategy to involve new players, to collaborate with new actors and to initiate a shift towards sustainable materials. The result is that collaborations have started. A great example is the event Nanoforum, July 4-5, , which was launched as the "industrial session at IVC-21" and became a great success.
Expected results and effects
The project has contributed to a greater interest from the estsablished chemical industry for advanced materials´ businesses, and its engagemant for sustainable innovations based on advanced materials technology. Furthermore, by securing SwedNanoTech´s future "homestead", it will be possible to initiate fora for successful collaborations between stakeholders.
Planned approach and implementation
The work has been orchestrated according to the initial plan in the application, namely: 1. Identifying member companies´ needs 2. Identifying partners and service providers 3. Identifying different industry needs regarding competence and innovations 4. Matchmaking events (such as NanoForum) 5. Value added seminars (how to build value with IP) 6. Expert seminars (how to register nanomaterials in REACH, with experts from ECHA, Swedish Chemicals Inspectorate, and standards)
