IraSME CORNET Partnering Event Aachen 31.01.2017

Elevator Pitch Sessions 

The concept of the Elevator Pitches is to put your project idea in a nutshell and convince potential partners to join your project in the time of a (quite long) elevator ride of 5 min. Instead of a project idea you can also present your organisation and your technical expertise to meet potential project partners. After the presentations there is room to meet face to face and consider a partnership more carefully.

Registration for our Elevator Pitch Session in Aachen is closed. The preliminary schedule is listed below:

11:40 Part I - Material Science and Information Technology

Themed matchmaking sessions according to technological areas. In parallel: Face-to-Face Meetings according to your personal schedules

Dr. Dirk Drees (Falex Tribology, BE) – Efficient durability testing - a wear institute

Short description: The main need in industry, with regards to friction and wear problems, is the durability question.  How long will this material perform its function ?  So there is a big need for WEAR-DATA.  But this need is not easy to cover: wear tests by their very nature, occupy testing equipment for a long time and also by their nature, require duplicates or multiple tests to perform statistics.  The only efficient approach for this is a multistation approach.  We set up multistation wear generators to develop a 'wear institute' where materials can be compared cost and time efficiently with respect to durability and wear evolution.  We are looking for partners and funding to establish a basic reference data base on materials.

Raman Subrahmanyam (Aerogelex competence center (TuTech GmbH)) – Biopolymer aerogels – High surface area materials for multiple applications
