EU projects – Technology Scouting – Business Innovation

FlexFunction2Sustain M31 meeting was full of discussions

On 12th and 13th of October, AMIRES participated in the 31-month consortium meeting of the FlexFunction2Sustain project in Athens, Greece.

On the agenda over the two days, the consortium has recapped on the progress achieved forwards the objective to create an Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) for sustainable nanofunctionalised flexible plastic and paper products. An overview of the work performed in the running Work Packages was presented and the partners set the course for the future activities. On the second day, discussions in specific workshops dedicated to the establishment of the OITB Association took place. As a symbolic act which expresses the intent of joining the Association, the partners signed the “Athens Declaration”. Equally important was the progress with the FlexFunction2Sustain Use Cases as well as the Pilot Cases included in the project via the Open Call which aims at validating the future OITB services. In a separate brainstorming session, the partners discussed how to increase the dissemination and promotional activities further to attract more proposals for the next and last cut-off date (27th January 2023).

We are looking forward to continuing working towards the launch of the OITB.
