Experienced Partners at EU level

The scientific and technological challenges of the Bond Project can only be solved by integrating a multidisciplinary consortium at European level with expertise in areas such as biotechnology, surface chemistry, nanofabrication, electronics and theoretical modelling. The partners involved in the BOND project are experienced partners used to work in large consortia with distributed laboratories all over the European Union and offer competences and resources to build a complementary partnership for the successful implementation of the nanobioplatform. Six of the eight partners have already successfully worked together in the European SPOT-NOSED project to produce a proof of concept of a bioelectronic sensor based on olfactory receptors.

Experienced Partners at EU level

Collaboration between complementary teams with leading expertises in nanobiotechnology, molecular biology, surface chemistry, nanofabrication, instrumentation, engineering and industrial development is the only way to successfully achieve the main goal of the present project. The consortium formed for the BOND project certainly satisfies this requirement and offers, in addition, an adequate balance between research partners, industrial partners and end users partners. The multidisciplinary approach cannot be realised only by national initiatives. Getting eight partners together from five different European countries (France, Ireland, Italy, United Kingdom and Spain) sharing a wide range of knowledge competences and technological facilities allows (or enables) the mobilisation of the human and technological resources from all over Europe.

The BOND consortium consists of eight well-established European partners being among the leaders in the areas of expertise previously mentioned. The consortium is formed by the following partners:
