On Wednesday, 20th October 2021, 10:00 – 11:30 (CET), Bionanopolys coordinator Maria Jorda from ITENE will present our project within the workshop “Empowering SMEs to accelerate market access of nano-enabled biomaterials”!

This workshop is organised by four Open Innovation Test Beds (OITBs) developing open innovation ecosystems for nano-enabled biomaterials (INN-PRESSME; BIOMAC; BIOMAT; BIONANOPOLYS).

This online event will bring together OITBs, SMEs, industry associations, clusters, universities, and research centres. Our goal is to build awareness on the OITB services for customers and SMEs which will bring their own ideas and materials to be scaled up by the OITBs.

Take part in this workshop to discover practical solutions and opportunities provided by four OITBs, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, for key sectors such as packaging, automotive, energy, construction, and consumer goods.

The workshop programme is available here.



  • Dr Ulla Forsström, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, coordinator of INN-PRESSME  
  • Prof. Dimitrios Bikiaris, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, coordinator of BIOMAC
  • Mariana Ornelas, Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials, coordinator of BIOMAT
  • Maria Jorda Beneyto, Centro Tecnologico ITENE, coordinator of BIONANOPOLYS

We hope to welcome you virtually at our event to discuss how to scale up biomaterials and mobilise the industry for a clean and circular economy.
