Flexible robotic platform for the automated production of nanoparticles
The joint project APRONA starts on the 1st of September 2017 with a duration of two and a half years and a funding of around 2 million euros in the context of the funding program of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, KMU Net-C, to promote SME-centric, strategic R & D networks in networks and clusters.
With the aim of a market-oriented technology development, APRONA is a pilot project in the cluster bringing together an engineering-driven SME, two life science SMEs and a Fraunhofer Institute. The project faces the challenge of an automated production of the diagnostic and therapeutic nanoparticle systems. As part of the APRONA project, SMEs, that are not yet regularly innovating, are involved in innovation networks and are merged with research institutes, enabling them to participate in their know-how.
