- We provide a sound knowledge of regional, national and European research funding
- We identify project partners in your area of science and business
- We support you from project initiation to completion
- We assist you in project management issues.
For information about supported EU-projects (FP7 funded) visit our booth: SusFuelCat,OrgBio, Osniro...
Within SusFuelCat BayFOR is Management and Dissemination partner and in the FP7 funded ITN projects OrgBio, Osniro BayFor is Trainee partner.
SusFuelCat aims to boost Europe’s expertise on catalysts for sustainable fuel production, especially hydrogen, by the process of Aqueous Phase Reforming (APR). Here, SusFuelCat aims to gain fundamental material structure-property relationships for the catalyst using model supports and metal nanoparticles. A strategy will be developed to optimize APR catalysts based on this fundamental understanding and being closely related to market prices of materials and dependency on imports from outside of Europe. Hydrothermal stability will be addressed by carbon supports and studied in long-term tests. The two primary objectives of SusFuelCat are:
a) To unleash the potential of carbon supported catalysts in establishing APR as an energy efficient process to convert different biomass based streams to sustainable fuels and to decrease time to market for commercial APR catalysts.
b) To generate data allowing the design and scale up of the APR process towards a further demonstration level. The final target is to show the technical and economic viability of the overall process, from synthesis to efficiency and durability of the nano-catalytic system.
It is expected that SusFuelCat will establish understanding of fundamental structure-property relationships in order to allow for leveraging the potential of carbon based catalysts in APR.
OSNIRO is developing new organic materials that absorb and emit light in the near infrared (NIR) range.
OrgBIO intends to develop new simple, small and portable sensors with high sensitivity based on organic materials, which can perform fast but reliable diagnostic procedures.

Being an important part /contribution of this scientific «success strory» (and being proud of it) around 10 years later precession diffraction / electron crystallography applications are present in almost every major electron microscopy /X-Ray crystallography scientific congress, with more than 280 publications (2004-2016) from various laboratories worldwide and dedicated issues of major scientfic microscopy journals.
Our precession diffraction related instrumentation (DigiSTAR precession unit) is actually present in more than 100 laboratories all over the world. Beam precession into the ASTAR device provides orientation and phase maps at 1-3 nm resolution (FEG-TEM) for a variety of materials (metals, semiconductors, oxides etc..) without any need of particular specimen preparation. Precession diffraction can be also very useful to obtain STRAIN maps at 2-4 nm resolution with FEG-TEM (sensitivity < 2 x 10-4) , providing extremely important information for materials scientists. Precession diffraction is also useful to enhance /optimize EELS / EDS spectra and allow to have better data. The recently developed with our Partner AppFive TOPSPIN platform allows the user to perform advanced analytical precession diffraction experiments with the TEM.
NanoMEGAS also participates as an SME Partner in the largest EU project (ESTEEM-2) on transmission electron microscopy. We are active Partners of IUCr (International Union of Crystallography/Electron Crystallography Comission). NanoMEGAS has collaborations with CNRS /INP Grenoble/France, Univ of Mainz /Germany , Univ of Barcelona /Spain , IIT Pisa /Italy , CNR Bari, Univ of Leiden -Netherands in developing new exciting electron crystallography applications.
