THE HORIZON PRIZE ON MATERIALS FOR CLEAN AIR

To improve air quality in cities, the challenge set for this €3 million prize is to develop an innovative and well-designed material solution that will reduce the concentration of particulate matter in the air.

The Horizon Prize on materials for clean air will be awarded to the most affordable, sustainable and innovative design-driven material solution that can reduce the concentration of particulate matter in urban areas.

You will be able to apply until 23 January 2018.

 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 6: Materials for Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)

Chairperson: Wanda Wolny (MEGGITT)

Scope and objective of this WG

Piezoelectric materials facilitate energy conversion from mechanical to electrical and vice versa. Thanks to the new technologies, enabling integration, they can be active as relatively small structures or parts of more complex systems, thus extending the frequency range in which they operate into high MHz range and the complex functionality, acting both as sensors, transducers and transmitters among other bringing close self-supported remote sensing systems for medical, safety and other applications.

Metamaterials are micro- and nanostructured artificial electromagnetic materials which offer an opportunity to realize electromagnetic material properties not available in nature, such as negative parameters, paramteres near zero, extreme chirality, and so on. They are rapidly maturing and become increasingly employed for the design of electronic and optical components, integrated circuits and functional devices. They will have ubiquitous applications ranging from the high speed computer chips to optical communications devices, high resolution imaging and biomedical sensors. Specialised electromagnetic materials will provide the necessary functionality for electronic devices and constitute the physical layer of the technologies dealing with electromagnetic signals in radio engineering, nanotechnologies, security, safety, and biology.

WG6 Scope:

  • Novel multifunctional oxydes – multiferroics, environment-friendly
  • Organic-inorganic composites as metamaterials & multifunctional structures
  • Micro and nano technologies for multifunctional structures
  • Functional materials with specific physical/electrical properties
  • Integrated systems based on multifunctional materials and structures
  • Artificial materials with exotic and extreme values of electromagnetic parameters
  • Fibre reinforced glasses for optomechanical applications
  • Magnetic glass-ceramic or polymer matrix composites
  • Phase change materials in organic and metallic matrices
  • Conducting polymer materials

Target/market groups

The topics are centred on materials & nanotechnologies as well as the related manufacturing & production technologies, while the applications concern most of EU priorities, namely:
  • Health (diagnostics, monitoring)
  • Transportation (safety, efficiency, reduction of pollution)
  • ICT (integrated components)
  • Energy (energy harvesting, energy conversion & management)
  • Environment & Security (detectors, sensors, NDE)
