Slide Gateone funded




gateone-project is an innovation action supported by Horizon 2020

Gateone-project is designed to accelerate and support the adoption of smart technologies by SMEs, managing the innovation risk

The starting point is Gate zero, with a portfolio of more than 200 ideas or use case. These use cases are supported by advanced state of the art technologies selected for their differentiation, IP and maturity. Our offer is to work with SME to consolidate a business case and develop the necessary demonstration for a “hands-on” experience of the technology.

The action started in January 2015 and will last for 3 years, it involves 8 European Research and Technology organisations and BLUMORPHO is Scientific Coordinator. In the frame of gateone-project, our concept is to start from a product idea and move towards the first gate of an innovation cycle involving both an SME and an RTO. The partners of gateone-project will offer to SMEs the opportunity to evaluate their technology with a demonstrator that will be delivered. The investment into a demonstrator can only be done if an SME expresses interest into the technology and the business case is validated.

9 partners – 6,3M€ grant as investment from the EC

Demonstrators to manage innovation risk

Intelligent systems, high connectivity, personalized solution, autonomous systems, robotics… Those solutions and many more are made available to European SMEs through the gateone-project. Whether you are looking for specific smart functions or new solutions in specific industry, gateone-project is here to support you and to help managing the innovation risk


Enabling the Internet of Rings

Sport is one of the leading application in wearable devices and the fitness market is a battlefield where small and large actors are entering in a severe competition. Fitness clubs are constantly looking for differentiation and part of the solution relies in the activity trackers and connectivity.
Boxing and martial arts have become an inspiration for fitness clubs. The training methods of Boxing are now adapted to fitness and commercialized under names like bodycombat™ or BodyAttack™.

Electronic innovation in pyrotechnics

The technology demonstrated in the gateone-project will allow F&P Robotics to become a game changer in their industry by providing robots equipped with cost-effective and large area printed pressure sensors which add sensing functionalities, manipulating and correction capabilities to the robots. After a period of 6 months for the industrialization of the sensors, these demonstrators will open new market opportunities for the collaborative robot from F&P robotics, especially human environment and food handling segment.

Deliver selective sensing to vision

The identification of plastic types or ice vs water detection has been demonstrated in the VTT lab and the camera will now follow a test campaign by NIT to explore all the capabilities offered by this camera.
This demonstrator is an addition of 2 high technology building blocks. The next step would then be to move to a higher level of integration with a tunable filter embedded into the camera for a more compact and light-weight version.

Get your clothes connected

Thanks to the photovoltaics technology developed by CSEM, the textile company has successfully integrated PV for low power consumption applications in an aesthetic way.
The T-shirts were already successfully demonstrated during the Olympics in Rio. The demonstrator will be used furthermore during the ASTANA EXPO 2017 in the Swiss Pavilion. The ASTANA EXPO will be the first «design win» for the company, up to 300 pieces will have to be delivered. A larger production will require 1-2 years after the end of the gateone-project.

Impact of gateone-project: 180M€ revenue targeted in 2021
