NanoPAT Final General Assembly M48 in Barcelona

With a mixture of feelings, NanoPAT partners met for the last time on 22-23 May 2024 in Barcelona (Spain) for their Final General Assembly at M48.

Thanks to all partners for the fantastic developments of the last 6 months and for the overview of all activities during the whole project duration! Really exciting 4 years lie behind us, full of high-impact collaborative work by the entire consortium, delivering successfully demonstrated inline/online real-time process analytical technologies for nanoparticle production reaching till TRL 6/7.

Special thanks to the coordinator, IRIS Technology Solutions, for hosting a very successful final meeting and for making us feel at home and bringing us closer to the Catalan cuisine and culture!

During our stay in Barcelona, we were able to visit IRIS facilities and their labs!

Some impressions of the two days in Barcelona:

On 20th October 2023, Blanca Suarez, from TEMASOL, visited the brand new facilities of FLUIDINOVA in Porto (Portugal), where BRAVE Analytics installed their OF2i B-Continuous prototype in one of Fluidinova’s nanohydroxyapatite reactors (as reported here).

Blanca was introduced to their pilot line using the OF2i device and all equipment involved, as part of TEMASOL activities in Task 7.4 “Nanosafety assessment & Elaboration of safety/Safety-by-Design guidelines”. The process is currently being analysed by TEMASOL staff under a risk assessment perspective to identify potential health issues, focusing on occupational exposure and nanosafety. The strategy will follow the one developed in the EU-H2020 project NanoReg2 for Safety-by-Design (SbD) implementation in industrial settings but adapted to the particulars of NanoPAT processes.

With this visit TEMASOL contributes to the SbD concept of the project, anticipating, identifying and addressing future safety issues relevant for commercially fully exploitable innovative technologies.
