VIPCOAT platform launched to make coating industry innovative, sustainable and green
Vrije Universiteit Brussel is one of 12 partners in seven countries involved in the new VIPCOAT project, which was launched on 1 May under the coordination of Germany’s Helmholtz Center Hereon. Its aim is to develop corrosion protection technologies more quickly and sustainably. The European Union is funding this project for five years within the framework of the Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology, and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing (NMBP) programme. The VUB research group SURF and VUB spin-off Elsyca are important partners in this project.
