Get free access to the NanoLeap Network of Pilot Lines for nanocomposites research projects

The NanoLeap project is organising the second Open Call for tenders to grant free of charge access to the Pilot Plants and consulting services that form part of the NanoLeap Network.
The Open Window call for tenders is part of the activities planned within the scope of the ongoing project NANOLEAP, 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 operation of the Pilot Facilities will be done by the Technical personnel of the Pilot Plant according to the bidder’s Work Plan.
  • Consulting services will be also available in all the pilot plants: IPR Management, Market Analysis & Business Modell, Nanosafety Assessment, Environmental Assessment, Characterization testing & Engineering consulting, among others.
  • Consumable & travel expenses incurred by the bidder as a result of the action will be covered by the bidder.

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.
If you are interested in participating, proposals can be received any time until 31 December 2017 and will be analyzed weeks after their reception.
