WASCOP at the sister project MinWaterCSP International Conference

WASCOP will be present with the delegates from MASEN, CRANFIELD and RIOGLASS at the MinWaterCSP International Conference taking place in Marrakech, Morocco, on 24 – 25 April 2018. The topic of this event will be Reduction of water consumption in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants with a special focus on new approaches in mirror cleaning, cooling system solutions and overall plant performance simulations. The aim of the conference is to present and discuss new technological solutions to minimize water consumption in CSP plants as well as to create networking opportunities. The event is targeted at stakeholders from Power utilities, Power plant operators, Technology suppliers, Research institutes and Academia that are working in the fields of concentrated solar power. Further stakeholders for mirror cleaning, cooling processes or similar, any users of those technologies, policy makers and investors interested in the topics are will participate to the event.

SME Instrument and Fast Track to Innovation Seminar

The Technology Center of the Czech Academy of Sciences will hold in partnership with the Czech Ministry of Industry and Trade on 24 April 2018 SME Instrument and Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) Instrument seminar. The event is intended for companies interested in engaging in these two funding instruments of the European Commision’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation framework programme. Presentations will be delivered by the National Contact Points, a reviewer of SME and FTI instrument proposals, recipient of Seal of Excellence and thus GAMA TACR funding, and a member of FTI consortium. 

AMIRES represented by Dr. Václav Smítka will present opportunities for SMEs within the new acceleration program for integration of flexible electronics technologies into novel products under H2020 funded project SmartEEs

4à6 de BioAlps

On Wednesday, 16 May 2018, from 4 pm to 6 pm 4à6 de BioAlps will take place. BioAlps’ „4à6“ are a series of events organized in each of the 7 cantons of Western Switzerland. It enables to visit the major reginoal actors in the biotech and medtech field. In this case, visits will be made to Swiss Advanced Vision, designer, manufacturer and distributor high quality intraocular lenses (IOLs) used in cataract surgery, to see how intraocular lenses are made along with a brief presentation of the most advanced projects SAV-IOL is working on. AMIRES is looking forward to joining the event. Click HERE for more and to register.

ETPN Regenerative Medicine Working Group Webinars

Working Group Nanotechnologies for Regenerative Medicine (WG RegMed) of the European Technology Platform for Nanomedicine (ETPN) in partnership with AMIRES launched a series of webinars, presenting recent advancement of ETPN  members in the field of nanotechnologies for regenerative medicine. These webinars aims to improve know how exchange, identification of key European experts and a wider networking among ETPN members (e.g. for collaborative projects). It is also intended to keep webinars open for ETPN non-members, particularly for industrial companies, to facilitate cooperation between researchers and enterprises (mainly SMEs). Please see below the list of past and upcoming webinars and their details (including recordings of the past webinars).
