The proposals should develop EU-wide harmonised characterisation protocols and data exchange procedures that reduce measurement discrepancies and increase interoperability, feed into work done under Industry Commons and facilitate services within technology infrastructures.

The challenge is to develop and implement Safe by Design concepts for products incorporating such nanomaterials and to understand their impact on manufacturing processes, on product performance, and on the environment and on health.

The challenge is to improve the operational performance of the next generation of offshore wind energy generators (larger than 8MW) and tidal stream power generators through better performance of their functional (e.g. wind energy generator rotor blades) and/or structural components [...]

The aim is to establish an open innovation platform for integrated materials modelling and materials processing development for industry that would facilitate setting up experiments, reduce error and enhance efficiency of the development process. A modelling framework applicable to a [...]

The challenge is to upscale and demonstrate in an industrial environment the sustainable conversion of different types of feedstock and bio resources in value-added novel, advanced, nano-enhanced bio-based materials and their application in products.

The aim is to re-programme microorganisms or synthetic biological systems with properties to be used as biological sensors in critical industrial sectors. Reprogramming microorganisms must comprise sensor, processor and reporter elements. Sensed molecular events will be associated with specific signal [...]
