EU projects – Technology Scouting – Business Innovation

SmartEEs2 Webinar

Can flexible and wearable technologies innovate your products and services? How to get technical, business and financial support for testing it?

SmartEEs2 is an original European acceleration program dedicated to helping innovative companies digitise their businesses thanks to flexible and wearable electronics (FWE) testing, experimentation and manufacturing support. https://smartees.eu

Within SmartEEs2 five Calls for Application Experiments are opened inviting interested companies, satisfying the criteria, to submit their application experiment proposals. Selected Application Experiments will demonstrate the transfer of flexible and wearable electronics technologies into new products / series of products, processes, business models and business opportunities. The next, already third, Call for Application Experiments is open until the 15th of January 2021.

This workshop is specifically aimed to inform companies in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary about possibilities to participate in the open calls but is open to anyone.

The workshop will also include examples of companies that were supported through the first SmartEEs project. Please complete the registration form under the following link.

This webmeeting will provide you information about:

  • the Horizon 2020 project OASIS
  • the open call for companies and institutions
  • the technologies that you can access through the pilot-lines
  • the business services provided by OASIS to boost your innovation
  • showcases already implemented to give you an impression of what can be achieved on the technological side with the support of the OASIS consortium.

Workshop Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes

We are inviting you to a hybrid Workshop on Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes from November 25 – 27, 2020 in Dresden or online. Switch2Save project, in which AMIRES is a partner, will be presented during the first and second day of the workshop.

According to the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD), all newly planned buildings in the EU shall be “nearly zero-energy” buildings by December 2020. Therefore, long term renovation strategies for existing buildings are needed to ensure a low and zero-emission building stock all over Europe by 2050.

Nanotechnology offers energy saving solutions for buildings such as smart windows, solar energy harvesting, active energy storage or super insulative elements and can therefore be an important part to achieve this mission.

The presentations in this technical workshop will focus on the latest developments in nanotechnology research and the most promising technologies for the energy efficient buildings of the future.

Each day of the workshop sets a different emphasis:
Day 1 – Energy efficient technologies for building envelopes
Day 2 – Reliability, life time and characterization
Day 3 – Energy smart solutions in membrane architecture (German only)

On the event website you will find the tentative program as well as the registration form.

Due to unsecure situation, we are happy to offer an online participation. For those who prefer to finally meet people on-site again, we prepared a security concept to make sure that your participation is safe and to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
