EU projects – Technology Scouting – Business Innovation

First SABINA National Based Workshop

H2020 SABINA project is organising its first national based workshop “New business model for innovative companies in the energy sector”, that will take place in Horsens, Denmark on November 9, 2017.

The electricity grids of Member States across the EU are struggling with capacity problems caused by intermittent generation. SABINA is a Horizon 2020 project that targets thermal inertia to achieve energy flexibility in buildings, helping to reach the EU’s long-term objectives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The uniqueness of the SABINA solution lies also on the novelty of its business model that will address innovative companies in the energy sector to enhance the use of heat pumps and serve as heating suppliers, developing flexibility aggregators for energy trading and balancing services.

This workshop will discuss how such a business model can be adapted to different countries and create new market opportunities for both current and new independent commercial aggregators. Opportunities and barriers for economic actors operating in the energy management sector, with specific emphasis on small and medium enterprises, will be also investigated and discussed.

MEDILIGHT in a partnership with the Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation is pleased to invite you to the workshop that will take place on 17 November 2017, in Brussels, Belgium.  During this event, main achievements of this project in development and validation of MEDILIGHT – a medical device for personalized wound care will be presented. MEDILIGHT is a miniaturized smart system which uses therapeutic effects of blue light to enhance the self-healing process and monitor the status and history of the wound during therapy, co-developed by multiple partners within a project funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.  MEDILIGHT is the first medical device combining an absorbent adhesive dressing and a light source to optimize the control of bacterial load and to stimulate fibroblasts and keratinocytes proliferation.

This project raised a lot of attention for its technical achievements and is also highlighted as a success story of a cooperation between industry, academia and research organizations driven by end-user needs.  A roadmap for further development after finalization of the research stage and market introduction has been outlined by the end-user.

 AMIRES is looking forward to seeing you there!

ETPN 2017

The 12th annual event of the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine will take place on 17-19, October 2017 in Torremolinos (Malaga), Spain.  The event will offer an opportunity to discover, to meet, to network, to prepare new projects, to brainstorm about nanomedicine and its industrial expansion. The main topics include:

  • Current trends in nanomedicine from bench to bedside
  • Focus on Translation tools
  • Quality by design
  • Interfacing KETs for healthcare.
  • Selected abstracts in Nanomedicine
  • Top level invited speakers

Deadline for submission of abstracts is 10 September. To see the event program and to register click HERE.

AMIRES represented by Dr. Rudolf Fryček will be there, taking part not only in the Regenerative Medicine Working Group meeting.

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).
