The European NewSkin OITB (Open Innovation Test Bed) project aims to accelerate the industrial adoption of advanced surface nanotechnologies. With a budget of over €15 million, this project brings together 35 partners (academic, industrial, laboratories, etc.) from all over Europe. The project started in mid-2020 and is scheduled to run for 4 years. It should result in the development of around 50 nano-activated prototypes and finished products.
Carbon Waters joined the project at an early stage. Our role is to develop solutions for improving coatings (nanocoatings) using graphene, in particular for corrosion protection (marine, offshore, biofouling) and intumescent coating protection.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement no. 862100 (NewSkin).
