    Support Stakeholders on Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage of ETIP ZEP and IWG9 The overarching goal of this proposal is to bring together and further develop a strong inclusive network of CCUS stakeholders – effectively interconnecting and coordinating the activities of CCUS European Technology Innovation Platforms (ETIP ZEP) and the CCUS SET Plan Implementation Plan Working Group (IWG9) – to support the development and implementation of the SET Plan. Supporting the alignment and efficient coordination of stakeholders – including industry, researchers, public authorities, civil society – in order to accelerate the delivery of the CCUS research and innovation (R&I) activities and to progress the emerging policy priorities at EU and national level for the implementation of CCUS, will be crucial over the coming years for Europe to reach the ambitious climate targets for 2030 and 2050. This will be achieved by efficiently aligning and coordinating the activities of ETIP ZEP and the IWG9 in a joint work programme; establishing networks and other fora to enable the stakeholders to collaborate and coordinate effectively, pooling expertise, experience and resources to address common challenges; engaging also with other programmes and external stakeholders; facilitating engagement and creating greater interaction and cohesion between the different CCUS activities; supporting the CCUS community to develop clear strategies and recommendations; accompanied by a strong continuous programme for outreach, dissemination and communication.

    The COFFEE project is a fundamental research project that seeks to combine research expertise from different European research institutes and universities, across multiple areas of materials chemistry to develop innovative anion exchange membrane (AEM) solutions for electrochemical energy conversion and storage technologies. This innovative project employs a bottom-up approach to membrane design that aims overhaul the traditional AEM designs that rely on linear cationic polymers and instead develop an entirely new class of membranes based on covalent organic frameworks (COFs). By functionalizing the inside of the cyclic COF structures with cationic groups, we can provide hydroxide conductivity properties to the synthesized COFs. The functionalized COFs then undergo self-assembly to form highly ordered nanochannels, enabling ultrafast hydroxide ion transport through the COF structure. These highly ordered COF structures will then be embedded in a polymer matrix to form membranes with an optimal balance of ionic conductivity and mechanical stability. A key feature of the COFFEE project is the highly tuneable nature of the final membrane properties through the careful selection of the molecular building blocks used in the COF synthesis. By building up a library of molecular building blocks and understanding their influence on the structure-property-performance relationship of the final membranes, we will be able to successfully predict membrane properties and provide tailor-made membranes for a range of ion exchange membrane-based technologies. The versatility of our membrane design strategies will be demonstrated by producing membranes optimized for two separate electrochemical energy applications that require significantly differently properties to achieve optimal performance (aside from the universal requirement for high ionic conductivity and stability). As AEMs have gained significant research attention in the areas of electrolysis and solid-state batteries, we will focus our demonstration efforts on anion exchange membrane water electrolysis (AEMWE) and zinc-air battery (ZAB) technologies. This will elevate the COF-based AEMs from a formulated concept, i.e., a TRL of 2, to a validated technology at the lab-scale, i.e., a TRL of 4. These emerging energy technologies have been touted by the European Commission's Hydrogen Strategy for a Climate Neutral Europe and the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan as key research directions for meeting Europe's ambitious climate goals. The COFFEE project is therefore aligned with the aim of the M-era.Net call of supporting the European Green Deal and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. More specifically, the COFFEE project will contribute to obtaining the following expected impacts outlined in the M-rea.Net 2021 call: - Support the European strategic policy targets in terms of greenhouse gas emission reduction and developing affordable sustainable energy sources and usage. - Strengthened innovation excellence of the European academia and research institutes. - Breakthrough outcomes in energy storage, conversion, and harvesting. - Developing next-generation materials for batteries. - Developing advanced functional materials for electrochemical energy conversion technologies, such as electrolysers. The innovative COFFEE solutions are expected to result in scientific breakthroughs, high visibility, and a competitive advantage for the involved partners. The project will contribute to the education of material scientists who might be involved in the implementation of technology in the future. The COFFEE consortium brings together highly skilled scientists with complementary expertise in a range of disciplines, e.g., organic synthesis, COF materials, membranes, electrochemical devices, and creates the opportunity for long term collaboration in research dedicated to excellence in science and innovative industrial applications.

    The main objective of the MUPIA project is to demonstrate a cost-efficient manufacturing process for a high end MEMS gyroscope for aerospace Applications. Both the sensor element and the packaging process is critical to achieve a precise, long term stable and reliable component. The consortium consist of SINTEF and Cerinnov, which together with sub Suppliers cover both the necessary silicon MEMS processing and the high end ceramic packaging technology needed to reach the goal of the project. SINTEF has worked with industrialisation of MEMS components since the 1960s. Despite being a research industry, SINTEF holds the certifications ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 and have a regular production of MEMS components for the petroleum, medical and aerospace industry. Cerinnov has expertise in laser processes for ablation and sintering. They will collaborate with a sub Suppliers with the development of the package for the gyroscope.

    Many bacteria that cause infectious diseases develop resistance to not only the primary antibiotic treatments available in the clinic but also to drugs of last resort which often require long treatment periods and come with significant side effects. At the same time many promising lead compounds with high activity and wide therapeutic windows have failed to progress to clinical trials due to poor solubility, protein absorption or other difficulties in formulation (e.g. low drugability). LeadtoTreat proposes a new solution to these challenges by introduction of a platform for future infection treatment enabling targeted delivery of novel lead compounds with low drugability as well as synergistic combinations of antibiotics and potentiators in a nano-formulation. A novel dual targeting approach, with both direct targeting toward the pathogenic bacteria as well as to areas of inflammation will be employed. This platform technology will be demonstrated by converting a highly active, but insoluble and protein binding, novel compound into targeted nano-formulations for treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections with proven in vivo and in vitro safety. Furthermore, LeadtoTreat aims to identify novel synergistic combinations of antibiotics and potentiators and convert these into highly active targeted nano-formulations for treatment of MRSA infections. LeadToTreat will have significant impact on the future treatment of microbial infections, by demonstrating a pathway to co-delivery of synergistic combination of existing antibiotics as well a path way to revitalize the huge library of abandoned low-drugability lead compounds. From an innovation perspective, it is expected to also develop broadly applicable targeting tools (for MRSA, and roadmap for other indications). The project will be managed by SINTEF (Norway) involving Narodowy Instytut Lekow (National Medicine Institute, NMI, Poland) and NanoTag Biotechnologies GmbH (NTB, Germany).
