innos is associated partner for SMEs as part of the European initiative "Manufacturing NextMaterials"

At the beginning of this year, "Manufacturing NextMaterials" was launched, a European project that supports small and medium-sized companies in bringing prototypes into test production.

The aim is to provide around 120 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with the necessary skills to close the gap between prototype and market, as state support usually ends at this stage.

The initiator and lead partner, Oost NL, is working with several German and Dutch partners, including other core partners and knowledge institutions, on this project over a period of four years. Together, they are creating cross-border facilities for test production of composite materials, advanced battery production, and support for 3D printing. This will allow companies to benefit from a wide range of expertise in technical and business areas.

We at innos are proud to be an associated partner in this ambitious cross-border project.

If you are a Lower Saxony SME from the German-Dutch border region and would like to participate in the project, please reach out to Dr. Andreas Baar at our office in Goettingen.

Oost NL (East Netherlands Development Agency) is an agency that focuses its activities on strengthening and stimulating the economy of the provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel, the Netherlands, but is also helping interregional SMEs to bring innovations to market by providing knowledge, access to funding (including European-wide funds), networking, and one-on-one contacts.

“ZIM” stands for “Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand,” which means “Central Innovation Programme for Small and medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).” It is a funding program of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action that aims to foster the innovative capacity of SMEs.
