Aimplas: Carboninspired 2.0 Project
CarbonInspired 2.0 was launched 1st July funded with Feder funds within the Territorial Cooperation Programme IVB Sudoe.
Its predecessor Carboninspired was created in 2011, a Project that joins five leading Technological Centres and Universities to transfer their nanoparticles research results to the automotive and building industries, the ones affected more by the crises in the south of Europe. Instructions were clear: nanotechnologies should go outside the laboratory to be introduced into the industry and to make profits.
After the finalisation of the project last year, the achieved results exceeded everyone’s expectations: after establishing one networking association with more than 314 participants, contacting with more than 1,300 enterprises, developing three industrial application prototypes, and a patent application; the industrial interest of nanotechnologies it’s more than evident.
Due to the success obtained for the automotive and building industries, the consortium considered the option of continuing its activities for other industries and other types of nanoparticles. Finally, a new project was created, leaded by CTAG, CarbonInspired 2.0.
The project reaps the results of its predecessor to transfer them to other industries and to involve all types of nanotechnologies. The networking will be increased, new prototypes focused to other sectors will be developed and training will be intensified trough a new-creation e-learning platform that allows the project to reach all Spanish, Portuguese and South French regions.
