Nanotechnology and nanomaterials Biotechnology and medicine Climate and Energy Telecommunication and IT Research areas: convergence technologies
Key EIT+ projects financed from IE OP Pracze Campus 140 m Euro BioMed 27.6 m Euro NanoMat 31.1 m Euro
Pracze Campus - focal point Basic infrastructure in 2014: Group of laboratory buildings Certified biotechnology laboratory Unique in Poland open laboratory areas - open spaces Additional buildings: Guest houses Park and sport facilities Concert halls Restaurant
Vision of A2B Platform Unique model of open cooperation with industrial partners dedicated to knowledge exchange, share of experience and common R&D activity answering real industrial partners expectations, Tool supporting industrial sector, driving their efficiency and innovation, A way to perform research and development activity for societal and economical growth.
Vision of A2B Platform Single Point of Contact (SPOC) – specialised know-how, technical infrastructure, information exchange and financial support, Access to the network of R&D practisioners, operating in business, as well as acedemic area, implementation of good practices, Complete knowledge exchange program (trainings, conferences, seminars), enabling exchange of experience as well as benchmarking with the best players on the market,
Basic targets of A2B Activity enabling an improvement of competitive advantage for the companies participating in common research work. Realistic financial contribution of WCB EIT+, Access to specialised information and publications,
Membership Benefits Membership agreement gives full access to A2B Platform services, information and documents and publications, The agreement is based on standard business rules of EIT+ approved by Polish Ministry of Science, Members of the Platform can initiate common R&D projects with EIT+, area of Life Science and Nanotechnology, R&D projects are carried out and funded by partners according to separate agreement.
Membership Benefits Partners share ownership of the Intellectual Property created within the project according to separate arrangements, Results of the project are supposed to be commercialised and introduced to the market (where possible),
Membership Benefits Typical ways of IP commercialisation: Industrial partner buys full IP rights, i.e. the part belonging to EIT+, Partners create a company to commercialise, market and sell IP, Partners sell IP licence to a third party (customer), WCB EIT+ buys full IP rights for further commercialisation.
NanoMat & BUSINESSNanoMat & BUSINESS Examples of projects and materials for cooperation with AeroNet Consortium Materials that potentially will be the result of research. They may be regarded as a product that we will offer in the market or issue for further research processing (even for applications other than those initially proposed). Presented topics are mostly issues that have yet to come, but now show the area of interest, in which the potential business partner can be incorporated, for example by extending the research task involving a business partner (co-financing in A2B Forum).
NanoMat & BUSINESSNanoMat & BUSINESS Nanocomposites for electrotechnics [insulation against high voltages, resistant to aging and weathering] Varnishes for electrical appliances [eg. engines] Phosphors for luminescent fibers and paints that emit in the visible light [marking own products, new types of paints] Laser techniques [micromachining, marking of different materials: cermaics, metals, polymers etc., surface cleaning] Surface modification techniques, to obtain film / polymeric layers that are sensitive to physical conditions [such as temperature, pH, ions etc.] Sensors, dampers and actuators made of smart materials [SMART]
NanoMat & BUSINESSNanoMat & BUSINESS Polymer nanocomposites with desired properties: magnetic, electroconductive, with luminophores, thermosensitive, pressure sensors etc. Polymers with porous structure [to fill], with the electric and magnetic properties, and with different defined properties. Electromagnetic field shielding materials [for wave lengths: X and gamma, microwaves and RF] Phosphors sensitive to X and gamma rays [eg. Application in Security] Rare earth metals [alloys, nanocomposites with, SMART materials, reduction of consumption, retrieval]
