NewSkin - Up-scaling and testing facilities available for start-ups, SMEs, Research organisations needing to validate innovative processes to manufacture nano-enabled industrial and consumer products
Summary:
An Italian association of companies, partner of the Horizon 2020 project "NewSkin: Innovation Eco-system to Accelerate the Industrial Uptake of Advanced Surface Nano-Technologies" offers up-scaling and testing facilities for the validation of innovative processes to manufacture nano-enabled industrial and consumer products.
Eligible entities include enterprises and R-Y-D organizations.
The association is open to technological or research agreements.
Description:
An Italian association of companies, that represents over 3200 manufacturing and service SMEs and large entreprises is part of the Horizon 2020 project "NewSkin: Innovation Eco-system to Accelerate the Industrial Uptake of Advanced Surface Nano-Technologies".
The NewSkin project aims to create an Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) to provide the European Innovation Ecosystem with the necessary technologies, resources and services to uptake a set of game-changing, efficient and cost-effective innovative processes to manufacture nano-enabled industrial and consumer products, as well as the necessary testing capabilities to demonstrate the features of nano-enhanced goods.
The OITB structure is composed by a set of 55 demos and is used to show case of the commercial potential of NewSkin across different industries. OITB services will be available on a free basis through four competitive Open Calls that will be evaluated every six months over a period of two years (from October 2021 to June 2023). Mature projects (high Technology Readiness Level or Manufacturing Readiness Level) will be encouraged.
NewSkin OITB services include:
· Access to existing Pilot lines sites around Europe - Upscaling;
· Monitoring -Y- Controlling;
· Modelling -Y- Testing: prototyping, design, LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), test sites, Nanosafety assessment and RMS;
· Regulatory / Standardization;
· Innovation Management and Market Uptake (Business Plan definition, access to corporate funding, dissemination services).
NewSkin nano-enabled surfaces and membranes technological portfolio includes:
· The complete set of processes for large-scale manufacturing of graphene nano-enabled membranes (from continuous graphene production to nano-pore creation and functionalization as well as testing facilities).
· Continuous laser texturing, roll to roll (R2R) and Texturing During Moulding (TDM) nano-textures mass production processes.
· Pilot plant semi-industrial facilities for the definition of efficient automated controlled and nano-safe nano-coating processes for large components.
· Continuous PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) processes.
Advantages and Innovations:
Selected applicants will:
· have free of charge access to all services of the ecosystem up to a maximum of 60.000 -Y-euro; per applicant;
· have the opportunity to innovate and develop their business idea;
· receive mentoring and support of industry experts for their concept;
· be part of a wide network establishing long-term relationships with key industry players.


Application fields that may have a benefit include:
· Structural steel
· Automotive, aerospace -Y- industrial components
· Marine transport
· Machining tools
· Water treatment
· Films, lenses and packaging
· Orthopaedic prosthesis
· Construction (facades -Y- windows)
· Renewable energy (wind -Y- solar)

Services provided include:
· Mass production Functional and High Performance Surfaces: R2R Processes, Texturing During Molding (TDM) Processes
· Direct Texturing -Y- Coating of Components for Automotive and Industrial Components
· High Performance and Functional Coatings and Textures: PVD, Sol-gel
· Application and Testing of nano-formulated coatings: application facilities and testing facilities
· Continuous Production of Monoatomic Graphene Membranes and other advanced functional layers
· Continuous Production of Graphene, CNT, Graphene Oxide and other nano-particles Membranes
· Membrane Texturing and Coating for Improved Selectivity and Fouling Resistance.

The offered know-how, expertise, technologies, testing capabilities, resources and services to uptake game-changing, efficient and cost-effective innovative processes to manufacture nano-enabled industrial and consumer products, as well as to demonstrate the features of nano-enhanced goods.
