ABSTRACT

A research institute of a German university is currently setting up a proposal for "Fast Track to Innovation". The envisaged project aims at reducing friction in components of medical devices (e.g. syringes) by altering the surface structure of moulded parts through surface modification directly in the mould. The research institute is looking for research partners (industry) producing rubber or plastic components for medical devices.


FULL DESCRIPTION

A research institute of a German university, which is active in the area of contact mechanics and polymer friction and with experience with H2020-projects, is looking for partners for the above mentioned call.
The aim of the proposal is to reduce friction in medical devices under relative motion by altering the surface structure. In this way it is not necessary to alter materials or add lubricants to reduce friction and no authorization process is needed.
The key innovation is the surface modification in the mold, hence this process is particularly suitable for mass production items.

The partner sought will be part of the project consortium. He will participate in his role as "end-user", meaning his task will be to identify potential applications from his portolio for the technology to be developed, prototype production and steps transfering the technology towards commercialisation and industrial production.

The deadline of the call is 22nd October 2019. The client will consider EOIs made before the August, 31st. Early EOIs are preferred.


Partner expertise sought:

- Specific area of activity of the partner: -Production of rubber or plastic components with friction for medical devices
- Production of rubber or plastic components with particular surface properties (e.g. hydrophobic) for medical devices
-the role of the potential partner is end-user.

Tasks:
- identification of potential applications from his portolio
- prototype production
- industrialisation
