Om Horizon 2020 Nano, Materialer og Produktion

Med støtte fra Horizon 2020 (materialer) kan du gennemføre internationale forskningsprojekter, der understøtter EU's politikker på områderne nanoteknologi, materialer, bioteknologi og avanceret produktion og forarbejdning. Virksomheder kan ved succesfuld anvendelse af programmet få:

  • € 1-5 mio. til teknologi- og produktudvikling
  • IPR – Patentrettigheder
  • Netværk til udviklingspartnere
  • Adgang til nye markeder
  • Teknologi- og videnstilførsel

Formålet med Horizon 2020 Materialer er at øge den europæiske konkurrenceevne i forhold til resten af verden og skabe nye arbejdspladser.

Muligheder ved Horizon 2020 Materialer

Mulighederne er til stede for såvel små som store virksomheder uanset branche og teknologiniveau. Det er således også interessant for virksomheder med traditionel produktion og ikke kun for højteknologiske virksomheder.
Det afgørende er, at virksomheden enten står over for en teknologisk udfordring, eller har en projektide til at løse en teknologisk/samfundsmæssig problemstilling. Gennem Horizon 2020 Materialer kan virksomhederne få medfinansiering fra EU til forskning og udvikling.

Opslag under Horizon 2020 Materialer, vil blive udbudt til projekter indenfor følgende kategorier (se nederst på siden for aktuelle opslag):

  • Nanoteknologi og avancerede materialer og produktionssystemer: Kommerciel anvendelse af nanomaterialer, sundhedspleje, energiteknologi og -effektivitet, tværsektorielt potentiale (inden for fx de kreative industrier, beskyttelse af kulturskatte, erstatning af materialer af væsentlig betydning, drikkevandsbeskyttelse) etc.
  • Bioteknologi: Drivkraft for innovation, industriel anvendelse, metagenomics, etc.

Krav til Horizon 2020 Materialer

Der er 3 overordnede krav til et projekt for at kunne ansøge om støtte fra EU’s Horizon 2020:

  • Innovationshøjde - produktet/teknologien skal være ny(t) og løse en Europæisk problemstilling (eksempelvis energi, produktion, miljø, styrke europæisk konkurrenceevne, etc.)
  • Stort markedspotentiale eller stor samfundsøkonomisk impact – min. €100mio over 5 år.
  • Projektet kræver internationale partnere.
  • Fremtidens fabrikker
  • energieffektive bygninger
  • Bæredygtige process industrier

Kommende deadlines

Nedenfor er vist de kommende ansøgningsfrister under Horizon 2020 Nano, Materialer og Produktion. Er der tid nok til at nå næste ansøgningsfrist? Vi anbefaler at beregne 1-2 måneder til udarbejdelse af ansøgningen.

The transfer to industrial companies of the Do It Yourself (DIY), fablabs, micro-factories and makers approaches can pioneer ways towards engineering solutions throughout the whole value chain. Industry is not yet widely using such innovative approaches to engage consumers and respond to societal needs, also taking into account the individual preferences of women and men.

Proposals should particularly cover consumer-goods sectors and couple design, creativity and knowledge with a customer-driven production. The co-creation of products in both ends of the value chain represents customer involvement in the production.

In line with the circular economy, lifetime extension can limit high replacement costs of major industrial infrastructures. This can be achieved through refurbishment, re-manufacturing, re-use, upgrading, in-situ repair, improved maintenance and more conservative utilisation of large industrial equipment of the kind used in manufacturing.

This topic is for demonstration projects to establish the feasibility of lifetime extension of large industrial equipment of the kind used in manufacturing, including modernisation of equipment for data collection and interfaces.

The handling of soft materials with the involvement of robots remains limited. The control systems of the robot need to be very sensitive, accurate and fast to prevent unwanted irreversible deformations and damages.

Proposals need to cover both of the following areas: Innovative technologies for the handling of the soft and flexible materials such as gripping, moving, positioning, sorting, joining etc.; And system solutions that can manage all product and material related data (size, shape, weight, colour, material composition, defects, etc.).

Shortage in raw materials, increased energy prices and environmental constraints require the European process industry to improve its performance and flexibility and there are unexploited opportunities for digitising a large range of enterprises of very different size in the process industry.

Proposals need to develop new technologies to realise cognitive production plants, with improved efficiency and sustainability, by use of smart and networked sensor technologies, intelligent handling and online evaluation of various forms of data streams as well as new methods for self-organizing processes and process chains.

Today, process industry operations for downstream processing represent on average 50-60% of the total capital (CAPEX) and operating costs (OPEX) and they account for up to 45% of the process energy in industrial operations. These high costs for downstream processing are often linked to the inefficiencies in the upstream process, due to low conversion and formation of co-products, by-products and/or impurities.

Proposals submitted under this topic are expected to provide novel solutions for a deeper integration of upstream and downstream processing operations.

Process industry plants have to be operated for a long time to make their operations viable. They include equipment such as furnaces, reactors, raw materials handling and storage systems which sometimes have a lifetime beyond 30 years. Keeping these facilities up to date from a technological and from regulatory point of view (for instance related to zero waste regulations and to the circular economy) is a major challenge.

Proposals need to cover several areas e.g.: The development of tools and methodologies to streamline and support retrofitting.

Europe is a leader in the development of components for buildings retrofitting. Its leadership is based on the use of high-efficient insulation materials including concrete, steel, glass, composites, wood and hybrids, which should lead to achieving recyclable, nearly zero-energy building envelopes (roofs, facades) when applied to new buildings.

Scope: The development of lightweight components based on high-efficiency insulation materials needs adding active energy management capabilities without increasing weight.

Energy Efficiency targets set at EU level by legislation are currently being reviewed. The related SET-Plan rolls out concrete steps how research and innovation could further reach these targets by 2025. However, the current practice to construct nearly zero-energy houses will be insufficient to reach the CO2 emission reduction targets for 2050.

New designs, making use of already developed and validated materials and components and smarter control systems ready to treat vast amounts of data are needed. The surplus of energy should come from renewable sources (geothermal heat, photovoltaics, wind, etc.), obviously optimizing the dynamic character of the energy balance all along the year.

Optimised storage solutions for thermal and electric energy are needed in order to better synchronise the overall supply and demand, at residential, district and urban level. Efficient management of the peak loads would reduce the overall operational costs of the installations. The main challenge is to demonstrate integrated thermal storage systems.

Proposals should develop advanced solutions including several elements such as: Reach improved heat exchange in and between storage material and heat carrier as well as high performing storage reactor over time;

After being used, plastics should be separated in order to be subject to the most appropriate waste treatment processes. This is increasingly difficult and inefficient due to, for example, consumers' inaccurate identification of the appropriate types of plastics for recycling.

Proposals will develop environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions for managing the waste of plastics mixtures based on the use of communities of microorganisms with a set of complementary enzymes.
