 MOVING TOWARDS A DIGITALLY POWERED CIRCULAR ECONOMY (Brussels 23-25 October 2017)

Two Days of Interactive Thematic Sessions @ G-STIC 2017

The G-STIC 2017 conference aims to accelerate the development, dissemination and deployment of technology innovations that enable the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). On October 23 & 24, G-STIC 2017 will dedicate a number of interactive thematic sessions to how digital technology will be instrumental in realising circular economy concepts, to achieve sustainable growth.

 WORTH PARTNERSHIP PROJECT STRENGTHENS THE SMEs COMPETITIVENESS THROUGH CREATIVITY  (close 31st December 2017)

After the success of the Pilot Project that involved a total of 79 small-medium businesses (SME) and 34 European enterprising partnerships, WORTH Partnership Project is back with renewed expectations.

Embarked in 4 years journey, the new objective is to support 150 cross-boundary partnership projects involving a minimum of 450 companies (SMEs and startups)

Worth Partnership Project is funded by COSME programme of the European Union to support collaborations between SMEs and start-ups of designers, art & craft and creative people with peers’ tech firms and manufactures to create innovative and disruptive products and ideas.

The Worth Partnership Project application call will be on going throughout 4 years, with different windows of opportunity. The first call, that will open the 18th of September 2017, will close the 31st December 2017 for the first partnership formation

 LUBMAT 2018

SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN 5th-6th JUNE 2018

LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.

WG 3: Nanomaterials and Nano-Assembled Materials

Chair: Daniele Pullini (CRF)

Under construction !

Scope and objective of this WG

This will include materials issues related to the following:

  • Multifunctional (sensing, actuation, low-friction and anti-wearing, improved wettability for painting, etc.) nano-assembled materials for components and micro-systems: focus on improving properties of existing materials, novel functions, modelling, low cost solutions;

  • Functional packaging materials for MST: focus on nano-assembled materials for high temperature operation (up to 600°C), nanoassembled materials fabrication – from lab to plant.

  • Recyclable high performance polymer nano-composites (biocomposite and ), Metal Matrix materials and advanced metal-polymer-ceramic composites;

  • Engineered nanostructured surfaces, focus on modelling of mechanical and tribological properties from nanostructuring;

  • Low cost fabrication of coatings for harsh environments (very high temperature(600°C), strongly oxidizing, highly wearing); particular attention on single material coatings (single element or alloy);

  • Modelling of quantum-properties of nanostructures such as nanowires and CNT, nanorods, nanoparticles. Microsystems including nano-objects of novel functionality.

The WG 3 priorities are presented in the following document
