The open window call for tenders is part of the activities of the ongoing NANOLEAP project, which brings together a European network of pilot production facilities focused on scaling up nanocomposite synthesis and processing methods.
NANOLEAP is funded under the H2020 European Research and Innovation Programme. The aim of the call for tenders is to carry out a pilot programme to test and validate the operation of the future network of pilot plants set by the NANOLEAP consortium.
The network intends to offer the following services:
The selected applicants will be granted free access to the technologies and services offered by the NANOLEAP pilot plants to carry out a research project or a business case supported by the NANOLEAP project.
Proposals must be received by 31 December 2017. Tenders will be granted until 31 March 2018.

Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
At SAMPE 2018 in Long Beach, Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will exhibit its advanced nonwovens, including the Tecnofire fire protection range, nano-coated materials and coated materials and Optiveil lightweight veils which aid surface finish and composite fabrication.
As part of its mission to address composites end-use industries, JEC Group is investing in composites showcases at key automotive events worldwide.
