COAST: An SME Opportunity
You are invited to attend this half day event which will introduce a unique opportunity for funding and innovation support for SMEs in the North East of England. The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) and Durham University have launched a joint programme to deliver the Collaborative Outreach in Applied Surface Engineering Technologies (COAST) SME Outreach Support Initiative, which will provide fully funded support via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to SMEs in County Durham.
This programme will enable the translation of Durham University’s exceptional knowledge, relating to the fundamental science and synthesis of nano-particles, into the commercial arena by drawing on CPI’s expertise in scale up, testing and commercial outreach.
This is an open-access programme which will exploit their exceptional capability in nanomaterials and nanotechnology and its application in a range of areas including surface-coatings, composites, formulations and advanced polymers.
This event will introduce the programme, allowing organisations to gain an understanding of what support is available and how to apply.
