FULL DESCRIPTION

An Italian agritech company is working to create industrial-scale production and intends to use its biodegradable and biocompatible hydrogel for applications that meet customer needs. These are composed of natural raw materials, when degraded in the soil they release strategic elements for soil fertility. These applications can absorb water, nutrients, microorganisms or other substances of interest, then release them. This technology can be useful to assist in the germination of seeds and the growth of seedlings, to convey substances and microorganisms in the environment and in the human body because they are edible and healthy. The company now proposes to proceed towards multidisciplinary collaborations with research institutes and innovative green companies with the aim of developing applications, natural carriers of microorganisms, fertilizers, protective and functional biological substances, nutrients, etc. Such collaboration could be related to technical cooperation for the development of the required applications or in a commercial agreement with technical assistance if the technologies are already available but still need to be adapted.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The patented hydrogel can be modified in its chemical and physical characteristics. Partners are sought to conduct research and development and meet specific requirements. The ideal partner with whom the Italian company intends to collaborate should: - Provide experience on natural polymers, their properties and their modifications; Abilities on synthesis, mixing and extrusion technologies in order to generate a significant improvement in the characteristics of the applications. - Capablity to create new formulations based on predefined targets and making field tests. - Guarantee and protect the exclusivity of knowledge shared or generated by collaboration.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: SMEs and researchers are sought in order to establish either a technical cooperation for the development of the required substances or a commercial agreement with technical assistance if they own technologies which are already available but they need to be adapted.
