Value4Nano – Strategic value chains for nano-enabled products

4 Oct 2013

The VALUE4NANO project started in September 2013 and aims at developing an implementation roadmap of 4 value chains and their target products. The roadmap will include business modelling and planning for a set of pilot lines and it will involve strategic industry and European stakeholders from research and innovation. The selected areas are:

  • Nano and micro printing for industrial manufacturing
  • Nano-enabled, depollutant and self-cleaning surfaces
  • Manufacturing of powders made of functional alloys, ceramics and intermetallics
  • Lightweight multifunctional materials and composites for transportation

Get involved – Pilot line activities for nano-enabled products

Project specific objectives are the formation and activation of 4 value chain expert groups, fostering industry alliances and involving key research and innovation actors coming from clustering of European, national and regional projects of the selected areas.

The activities include also a comprehensive feasibility study, business modelling and planning on a possible set of pilot lines. By performing roadmapping, networking and exploitation activities in a wide application-oriented network with nano relevance, the linkage between industry, research institutions, regional, national and international entities, investors, European Technology Platforms and initiatives on nano and other key enabling technologies is created.

With the goal of assuring a strong industrial and market focus, Spinverse will involve industry experts of the above mentioned areas to discuss and define the framework needed for companies to enter into joint activities for pilot lines. In several workshops, the experts will have the opportunity to contribute to these roadmapping activities and discuss opportunities along their value chains.

If you are representing an SME or a corporation and you are interested in having an impact on the pilot lines activities in the nano area on a European level, please contact us!

Value4Nano is a project funded by the European Union under Framework Programme 7 for Research and Technology Development under grant agreement number 608684.
