Project Name:

Smart Inks as a Standard Testing Tool for Self Cleaning Surfaces (INTEC)

The INTEC project is medium-sized collaborative research a Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) - "Cooperation", Theme 4: Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies - NMP, topic Support for Standardisation Needs - Coordination Actions (FP7-NMP-2012-CSA-6).

The main scope of the INTEC project is to explore the utilisation of photocatalyst indicator inks in a CEN standard for the rapid testing (albeit semi quantitative) of the activities of various different self-cleaning surfaces, including: glass, tiles, paints, fabrics and concrete.

Four academic and two industrial partners from four different nations participate on the INTEC project:
