Financials / Grants
SpinPlant is financed by its shareholders and receives two public grants (BMWi, BMBF).
The joint project (BMWi Förderzeichen: KF3470801AJ4) between SpinPlant and the research institute FILK comprises the development of electrospun collagen fleeces, which are suitable for medical device applications. This project is supported by the federal ministry for economic affairs and energy (BMWi).
In cooperation with IWM-Halle we are working on the development of electrospun catheter and catheter-coating materials within the framework of the joint project” INKA-Embedded”. This project (BMBF Förderzeichen: 03IPT710G ) is supported by the federal ministry for education and research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) in collaboration with project management Jülich (PtJ).
Sachsen-Anhalt, EFRE grant
In cooperation with Fraunhofer IMWS in Halle, we are currently working on the development of peek materials, which are coated with electrospun collagenfibers. Goal of this joint research project is the development of functional implants, which combine the mechanical advantages of polymer materials with the biological benefits of collagen coatings. EFRE (Europäischer Fonds für regionale Entwicklung) and Sachsen Anhalt are supporting the realisation of this research project financially.
