The project HEALTH LSR will be present during the conference on Polymers and Medical Applications


The fifth edition of the conference Polymers and Medical Applications, which take place yearly, will be hosted by Aitor Arbelaiz from the Bayonne Chamber of Commerce, and will focus on "Liquid Silicone and Health in our territory". Throughout his presentation, Arbelaiz will also talk about the market analysis that is being carried out within the European project HEALTH LSR and led by Leartiker, and of which the Bayonne Chamber of Commerce is a partner.

The European project HEALTH LSR, co-financed by the ERDF funds, focuses on the development of innovative cross-border activities in the health sector. CCI (Chamber of Commerce of Bayonne), University Clinic of Navarra, University of Pau and SODENA (Development Society of Navarre) are the co-partners of Leartiker, the leader of the project.

HEALTH LSR seeks to diversify the companies in the polymer sector in the Aquitaine-Euskadi-Navarra area towards a sector of higher added value, such as the health sector, through the use of liquid silicone. The diversification of the companies that currently work for this sector, but are unaware of the use of liquid silicone, is one of the objectives to be achieved. Accordingly, five prototypes of new liquid silicone products will be generated and transferred to the suitable companies to be industrialized and commercialized. The integration of these companies into the silicon pole will encourage the transfer of knowledge from universities and technological centres towards the industrial fabric; hence, the economic links between the different actors involved in the project are reinforced.

The project started in June 2016 and will last 3 years. It has been co-financed 65% by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg VA Spain-France-Andorra Program (POCTEFA 2014-2020), whose objective is to strengthen the economic and social integration of the France-Spain-Andorra borders. This allowance focuses on the development of cross-border economic, social and environmental activities through joint strategies for a sustainable territorial development.
