Berlin

INAM is looking for Innovative Technological Processes to produce High Performance Organically Modified Nanomaterials.

Win a pilot project and the chance for a long-term partnership with a global Industrial company. Apply in just five minutes for a chance to win!

 

ORGANISER

A core INAM member, a Global Industrial company developing solutions for Materials Technology.

REQUIREMENTS
The challenge is open to any university research group, research center, startup and industrial company.
You have developed an innovative and disruptive technology or a combination of existing technologies to modify the surface of materials with high efficiency. Your technology must be technically reproducible, and its scalability must be viable to tons level.

BRIEF
Changing solid materials behavior through a process of surface activation is required to obtain novel materials with high efficiency and profitability. The innovative technology might include any physical or mechanical treatment that allows to increase the surface contact in order to improve the modification, v. gr. by dispersing aggregates and/or agglomerates, but without breaking the constituent particles and altering its morphology.

The final purpose would be the hydrophobization of the inorganic solid material surface.

The technological process must also confer or boost its capability to disperse in an oil or solvent-based liquid phase.

BENEFITS:

  • Win a long-term corporate partner
  • A chance to work on a pilot project with a global leader in automotive safety.
  • Validate, grow and scale up your solution globally with us.
  • Technical and business mentoring.
  • Technical integrations for a joint proof of concept.
  • Direct access to channel partners (including distributors and resellers)
  • Direct investment in your Company (solution) could be evaluated (following phases)

TIMELINE
Applications Open: 1 July to 1 November 2019
Pre-Selection: 5 Projects will be pre-selected by the end of November 2019
Presentation: 3 finalists will be invited to the Headquarters of the company in February 2020
Winner Announced: April 2020
