|New [nano coatings] spin-off of the University of Barcelona|
The spin-off "Advanced Nanotechnologies, SL" has been formally created. In the next four years it will develop an innovative surface treatment that will be able to be applied to the automobile sector, among others.
The UB has become part of Advanced Nanotechnologies, SL through the Group Innovative and Scientific Cultures (CIC-UB), and has signed a license agreement with Advanced Nanotechnologies, SL through the Bosch i Gimpera Foundation (FBG).
The new spin-off of the UB has been enhanced by Enric Bertran, professor of the UB’s Department of Applied Physics and Optics and responsible for the Consolidated Research Group of Physics and Engineering of Amorphous Materials and Nanostructures (FEMAN). Esther Pascual and José Luis Andújar, professors of the same department and members of FEMAN and of the Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of the University of Barcelona (IN2UB) also take part in the project, together with Antonio Onteniente, who holds a degree in Physics for the UB and who has a wide experience in the automobile sector as international projects director; he currently is the managing partner of the enterprise Ontledge, SL.
