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.
