NANOMAT-EPC aims to support the deployment of societally beneficial nano- and materials technologies in European Partnership countries (EPC), in order to increase exploitation of their scientific results and contribute to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Consequently, NANOMAT-EPC aims to develop knowledge and technology transfer in nano- and materials technologies for healthcare, clean energy and environment applications. The project will be implemented by a well-balanced consortium of nine partners – four EPC partners and five EU partners.
In order to stimulate the knowledge and technology transfer, NANOMAT-EPC’s mission is the following:
i. Map and promote organisations involved with nano- and materials technologies in EPC;
ii. Organise brokerage events in the EPC to facilitate knowledge and technology transfer in nano- and materials technologies;
iii. Organise workshops in the EPC to identify nano- and materials knowledge and technology transfer opportunities;
iv. Implement pilot nano- and materials technologies deployment projects. The pilot projects will be bilateral between the EPC and European partners and based on education, training and exchange of scientists as follows:
a. Deployment of high conductivity zirconia anodes in solid oxide fuel cells (IPMS and UB)
b. Deployment of hybrid CNT/graphene electrodes for supercapacitors (BSUIR and Cleancarb)
c. Deployment of nanosensory devices for environmental monitoring using picosecond laser technology (GTU and PSUD)
d. Deployment of magnetic nanoparticles for medical applications (IPR-NAS and LZH)
v. Produce report with recommendations on how to exploit to nano- and materials knowledge and technology transfer opportunities in EPC.
