Open Call for Tenders: Pilot Lines Network for promoting the use of nanocomposites in building constructions and civil infrastructure

The call for tenders is part of the activities planned within the scope of NANOLEAP project. The aim of the call is to carry out a pilot programme to test and validate the feasibility and the operation of the future network of Pilot Plants to be set up by NANOLEAP consortium. The pilot programme will select, through an open call for tenders, a number of Micro, Small, Medium or Large size enterprises interested in carrying out a research project or developing innovative products and processes.

The call for tenders is part of the activities planned within the scope of NANOLEAP project. The aim of the call is to carry out a pilot programme to test and validate the feasibility and the operation of the future network of Pilot Plants to be set up by NANOLEAP consortium. The pilot programme will select, through an open call for tenders, a number of Micro, Small, Medium and Large size enterprises1 (target companies for NANOLEAP network) interested in carrying out a research project or a product development in any of the NANOLEAP pilot plants. The selected applicants will be granted access during 6 months to any of the NANOLEAP network’s pilot plants to carry out a research project or a business case. In addition to the use of the pilot plants, a number of consulting services will be provided by NANOLEAP network as part of the action. Deadline for the submission of Tenders: 15th of July 2017.
