Work plan

The project is divided into 9 work packages covering the scientific and technical aspects of the project, exploitation and dissemination of results, knowledge transfer, market strategy and project management. Each work package is managed by a work package leader who is responsible for the timely delivery of deliverables to the Coordinator, who in turn represents the Consortium to the Commission.

The figure above displays the consortium structure, having the nano-monitoring technology providers as nucleus of NanoPAT’s approach. RTOs are shown at a second level, positioned between these providers and the industrial end users where the three technologies will be tested. They will act as open access test beds in the project and beyond allowing the long-term ability for companies handling NPs to pre-validate the novel monitoring techniques developed in the project in representative downscaled processes. Finally, the digital technologies for data handling and elaboration, as well as technology dissemination within and beyond the consortium ensure successful and multilateral transfer of the knowledge related to novel nano-characterisation technologies, are considered as complementary actions to this central technological and industrial oriented core.

Work Packages

In the first phase (WP1) we will translate industry-led PAT challenges into a catalogue of lab specifications to guide the following innovation work. The second phase (WP2-4) deals with the laboratory and TRL5 RTO pilot scale testing and validation of the three nano-monitoring PAT technologies, whereas the third phase (WP5) deals with the integration of monitoring technologies and data analysis for each case study. In a fourth stage (WP6), testing and validation at demonstration scale (TRL6) for our monitoring technologies is performed in the pilot plants of our industry partners. To complement the first 6 WPs, in the fifth phase (WP7 and WP8), the project is dedicated to knowledge transfer, dissemination (WP7) as well as market strategy and Innovation impacts (WP8) with transversal activities like value chain study, exploitation, business planning and dissemination of the results to prepare the market uptake and maximise the project impact. WP9, running in parallel to all other activities is dedicated to project and innovation management.
