Research Project NANOLEAP

Horizon 2020: Nanocomposite for building constructions and civil infrastructures: European network pilot production line to promote industrial application cases

(Jan 2015 – Jun 2018)

In 2015, we joined an international consortium on the Research and Development project Nanoleap under the Horizon 2020 programme. The project aims to develop a coordinated network of specialized pilot lines for the production of nanocomposite based products for different civil infrastructure and building applications. 

The pilot plants will consist of various mechanical, chemical and/or electronic devices with built-in sensors and actuators for a fully automated operation of the whole system. A user-friendly control system will assure smooth and safe operation of the pilot plant systems and remotely supervised control. This allows for on-site operation without demanding the presence of operators for supervision and control of regular operation. However, the infrastructure of the automation system will provide enough computational power and the data acquisition functionality needed for R&D phase of the project. 

The project consortium met at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science in Thun, where we successfully demonstrated the first synthesis of nanocomposite materials using inductively coupled plasma.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 646397.
