Workshop "Nanotechnologies and Advanced Materials for Regional Growth – The Challenge of upscaling"

9 February 2017, Brussels




Synergies between Horizon 2020 and the European Structural & Investment Funds (ESIF) could support the uptake of pilot lines and their services and boost regional investments and new business.

Over 80 people gathered in Brussels to share experience, work collaboratively, and discuss the state of play and future developments of pilot lines for upscaling nanotechnologies & advanced materials for regional growth.

Regional representatives of different Members States, Project Coordinators, exploitation leaders, pilot line developers from RTOs, businesses, and civil society organisations actively joined the discussion, and interesting lessons came up from good practices for future widening initiatives across Europe.

Participants actively engaged in the process of collecting ideas for future activities and priorities for the 2018-2020 programming period. The high turn up and engagement of experts in the discussion marked the success of this initiative launched and organised by DG Research with DG Regio, GROW, and JRC. 

Participants called for another meeting, in 6 months.
