01.07.2015 ANF Technology, the innovative discoverer and developer of the NAFEN alumina nano fibers and related dispersion products, recently was awarded the maximum grant award from the EU’s Horizon 2020 science innovation program (€2.5m).

“Horizon 2020” is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness.

Seen as a means to drive economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future and so put it at the heart of the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.

According to Tim Ferland, ANF’s Commercial Director, “the H2020 grant allows ANF to continue to provide on-site development of our dispersion products so that our customers can easily incorporate NAFEN into their production processes. It will be of significant help in our continuing development efforts to meet the expectations and needs of the advanced materials and composites industries.”
