Since the beginning of September 2019, boltzplatz is a member of the European Society of Thin Films (EFDS). This will allow us to take part in the several working groups and connect with companies and research institutes in the vacuum coating industry.
In the time frame April 2019 up to March 2020, boltzplatz will be supported by the EXIST Business Start-up Grant. EXIST is a support programme of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF).
boltzplatz will participate in the working group meeting of the INNOspace® network space2motion at HEGGEMANN AG on January 31, 2019. The meeting will focus on topics of manufacturing (e.g. coating processes) as well as topics of product development (e.g. simulations). We are looking forward to interesting discussions with the network partners.
Since the beginning of November, we are part of the INNOspace®-Network space2motion. It’s a platform for the technology exchange between the space and automotive industry. We are looking forward to future collaborations!
Starting from the 1st of July, 2018, we are part of the Technologie-Transfer-Initiative GmbH (TTI GmbH, an initiative of the University of Stuttgart supporting startups and entrepreneurship) as a Transfer- und Gründerunternehmung (TGU). As a TGU, we can focus on first pilot projects with the backing of the TTI GmbH. Image: TTI GmbH
boltzplatz visited the SurfaceTechnology Germany in Stuttgart to see if there is a demand to simulate processes such as Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD). After talking to many surface coating companies, we got an overall positive feedback and gathered important contacts, we are following up now. Image: Deutsche Messe
