The agreement will allow the development and commercialization of a nanoformulated protein for the improved treatment of diabetic foot ulcers.
This license agreement arises from the patent generated through a co-operation between the research group of Prof. Jaume Veciana and Dra. Nora Ventosa belonging to the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona of CSIC, and the Center for Genetics Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) from the scientific polo of Havana Cuba.

The Project: "Large Area organic devices with Bar-assisted meniscus shearing technology" is receiving ‘Proof-of Concept’ grants of up to 150.000€ from the European Research Council (ERC). Bar-assisted meniscus shearing is a novel technique to deposit thin films layers of organic semiconductors. This technology is of great interest to organic electronics because of the possibility to fabricate large areas devices at high throughputs and low costs on a variety of substrates including flexible and transparent sheets of plastic.
