A new technology transfer network between Spain, Portugal and the south of France has been created for the application of high value added materials in the automobile and building sectors.
CarbonInspired is a project starting in 2011 supported by the Territorial Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVB SUDOE and co-financed with ERDF funds.
The principal objective in this project is the creation of a collaborative network among public and private research centres for the transfer of knowledge to the enterprises, supporting them in added value and the development of innovations. The network will bring guide and advice to the enterprises from the southwest region of Europe, specially SMEs, to enable them to develop new products and processes based on carbonaceous nanoparticles, to contact partners, suppliers and end-users, to detect new opportunities, to evaluate new possibilities, training, technological search and to analyse the cutting-edge technologies.
The Galician Automotive Technological Centre (CTAG), as the CarbonInspired network coordinator, will carry out the first dissemination activity at the JEC Composites Show 2011.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) selected a lightweight FiberSPAN fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge deck, manufactured by Composite Advantage, for the Rugg Bridge on Route 57.
The Lightweight Technologies Forum will take place in parallel to Composites Europe, on 6-8 November 2018 in Stuttgart, Germany.
Tecniplas will exhibit FRP tanks suitable for contact with drinking water at the Fispal Tecnologia food and drink trade fair in São Paulo, Brazil, on 26-28 June.
