Resumen:
Un centro tecnológico español y dos organismos de España e Italia van a presentar un proyecto a la convocatoria Fast Track to Innovation del programa Horizonte 2020 con el fin de desarrollar césped artificial funcionalizado. El objetivo es aplicar tecnologías microencapsuladas de liberación controlada con agentes aromáticos, protección UV/térmica y agentes hidrofílicos para su aplicación en césped artificial funcionalizado que simule el césped natural, alargando su vida útil, aspecto y olor natural. Se busca un socio extranjero (excepto español o italiano) para fabricar césped artificial o un mezclador del material para fabricar césped artificial funcionalizado (el consorcio no busca un fabricante de rellenos para césped). El plazo para presentar expresiones de interés finaliza el 20 de mayo de 2016.

H2020-FTI Pilot -01- 2016: Looking for artificial turf grass manufacturer and/or compounder of the material for the manufacturing of functionalized artificial turf grass (nor Spanish, neither Italian)
Summary:
A Spanish technological centre and two organizations from Spain and Italy are building up a Horizon 2020 Fast-Track-to-Innovation project aimed at the functionalization of artificial turf. Consortium partners are sought for the following roles: a compounder of the material for the manufacturing of artificial turf grass, an artificial turf grass manufacturer and an artificial turf´s infill manufacturer.
Description:
The objective of the project is to apply controlled release micro-encapsulated technologies with aromatic, UV/heat protection and/or hydrophilic agents for its application in functionalized artificial turf that simulates natural one, thus enlarging its lifespan, natural aspect and natural aroma.

Functionalized micro-capsules will be both integrated/embedded within the polymeric matrix and conveyed through a spray application.

The spray is in the market, although some improvements are required for further duration of the effects. The compound has already been tested and applied within a relevant environment. This is time now to transfer it at the industrial scale. The turf functionalization is asked for the commercial target.

This is a very near to market call (starting from TRL6) and results must be in the market in three years after the project start.

The results of the project will allow further expansion and the internationalization of the companies involved.

The value chain of the consortium is based on the following roles:
- MATERIALS´ RESEARCH INSTITUTE.
- AN INNOVATION COMPANY THAT PRODUCES THE TECHNOLOGY OF MICRO-ENCAPSULATION.
- AN INNOVATION COMPANY THAT PRODUCES THE ELASTOMERIC infill GRANULE for GROUND simulation (sought).
- A COMPOUNDER OF THE material for the manufacturing of artificial turf grass IN FORM OF PELLET (sought).
- A TURF grass MANUFACTURER (sought).

Current consortium is made up of one RTD and two innovative companies which manufacture micro-encapsulated materials in form of spray and artificial turf´s infills, respectively.

The searched partner/s should not be Spanish, neither Italian industry organization (whether if it is SME or not is not relevant) with any of the following profiles:
- Pellets producer / Compounder
- Artificial turf grass manufacturer
- Artificial turf´s infill manufacturer

The three of them will be in charge of definition of industrial scale specifications of pellets/turf filaments, industrial scaling and commercial validation.

European PIC code would be required for the cooperation to the project. If the applying organization has not participated in a European project yet, help would be provided if necessary for the registration process.

The role of the partner in the project will be: providing information on the market specifications, manufacturing the aimed product with new functionalized materials, industrial scaling up and technical -Y- economical validation. Introduction within its products range is expected in three years time from the project starting.

The proposal is being prepared for the next H2020-FTI Pilot -01- 2016 (Fast Track to Innovation Pilot), whose first cut-off is next June, 1st.

The project is expected to last 3 years from project start to reaching full production capability.

Funding awards for an FTI Pilot Project are at a rate of 70% of eligible project costs.

Expressions of Interest to be received by 20/05/2016.
