Bio4self Project

Fibre-based materials for non-clothing applications. Development self-functionalization of the material, aiming to induce inherent self-cleaning, self-healing and selfsensing properties.

BIO4SELF aims at fully biobased self-reinforced polymer composites (SRPC). To produce the SRPCs two polylactic acid (PLA) grades are required: a low melting temperature (Tm) one to form the matrix and an ultra high stiffness and high Tm one to form the reinforcing fibres. To reach unprecedented stiffness in the reinforcing PLA fibres, we will combine PLA with bio-LCP (liquid crystalline polymer) for nanofibril formation. Further, we will increase the temperature resistance of PLA and improve its durability. This way, BIO4SELF will exploit recent progress in PLA fibre technology. We will add inherent self-functionalization via photocatalytic fibres (self-cleaning properties), tailored microcapsules (self-healing properties) and deformation detecting fibres (self-sensing). The project is supported by Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

The BIO4SELF consortium consists of the 15 actual partners (with an EC budget) and further a group of 9 partners who expressed their support to the consortium via a Letter of Support. The latter group forms the so-called Innovation Support Group or ISG.

Modcomp Project

Modified cost effective fibre based structures with improved multi-functionality and performance.

The MODCOMP aims at developing a new technology able to increase the power of Europe in strategic domains. MODCOMP aims to develop novel engineered fibre-based materials for technical, high value, high performance products for non-clothing applications at realistic cost, with improved functionality and safety. Demonstrators will be designed to fulfil scalability towards industrial needs and focus on TRL5/TRL6. End users from a wide range of industrial sectors (transport, construction, leisure and electronics) will adapt the knowledge gained from the project and test the innovative high added value demonstrators. MODCOMP will develop the next generation of CF-based materials for structural and electronics applications. The benefits of fibre-based materials have clearly been shown in aerospace applications which require lightweight, high strength, high stiffness, and high fatigue-resistant materials. The project is supported by Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

The consortium consists of seventeen partners from ten European states.

Smartpro Project

Lightweight, flexible and smart protective clothing for law enforcement personnel.

SMARTPRO aims to develop optimized ballistic textiles (both woven and spacer knittedfabrics) and apply innovative surface treatments (e.g. shear thickening fluids, ceramic coatings) to improve theirperformance on an areal density basis. Thus, fewer fabric layers will be required, which is expected to result inincreased flexibility and reduced weight of the armour. Main parameters to consider also include physiologicalcomfort and ergonomic design. Additionally, smart functions, including positioning systems, will be integrated to further increase the efficiency of the body armour, eventually leading to reduced casualties. Finally, while a main limitation is that existing protective gear is usually limited to the body armour; innovativesolutions are herein proposed for the protection of vulnerable body parts other than the torso.

The consortium consists of ten partners from five European states.

OSM offers support in the area of web identity.

Development of multifunctional Thermal Barrier Coatings and modelling toolsfor high temperature power generation with improved efficiency.

Main objective of the TheBarCode was to advance the efficiency of power generation in gas turbine processes by the development of advanced parts of significantly improved performance and software providing optimized process parameters. Its aim was the development of materials, methods and models suitable to fabricate, monitor, evaluate and predict the performance and overall energy efficiency of novel thermal barrier coatings for energy generative systems. This would be done by radically improving the performance of materials "in service", by the application of novel thermal barrier coatings. A significant improvement in energy efficiency and cost effectiveness would be achieved with structural design and computational fluid simulations.

The consortium consisted of twelve partners from eight European states.

OSM offered support in the area of exploitation, dissemination activities, market potential technology watch and web identity.

We Make thinks simple.

Business Planning

We can prepare blueprints for how your business will run either it is in space technology or agriculture. We may reveal what future direction your business may take and how to make the most of your innovations. The real value of creating a business plan is not in having the finished product in hand; rather, the value lies in the process of researching and thinking about your business in a systematic way. The act of planning, helps to think things through thoroughly, study and research if you are not sure of the facts, and look at your ideas critically. It takes time now, but avoids costly, perhaps disastrous, mistakes later. We can make it in a single page or more than 5 Kg.

Risk Management

We have the right gear to IDENTIFY RISKS, ANALYSE THEM & MAKE SURE THEY WON’T COME UP. But if they do come up we will manage them.

Ethics Management

Projects should respect fundamental ethical principles. During proposal preparation a preliminary screening takes place for those proposals raising ethics issues and we provide recommendations arising from the ethics review. During implementation we monitor ethics issues and overlook conformity with international legislation and requirements. Where relevant, security aspects are also considered.

Project Management

We have been managing projects using global standards from always. We are confident that our personal performance results in a positive outcome and are recognized by stakeholders as the important factor in project objectives achievement. We are reliable in all relationships and exhibit eagerness to organize and lead multicultural groups.

Knowledge Management

Cooperating with the biggest training institutes around Europe we guarantee successful knowledge management of project outcomes. What if a project is successful and no one knows it or benefits from it? We organise workshops, seminars, Delphi studies, and all sorts of events to disseminate results in various levels.

We Know the way.

We can't afford to overlook risks or ethics and we have the means to diffuse knowledge when projects complete. Various components of the whole that can be treated separately.

Τechnology Τransfer

Operating in the TT field since 1998 and as members in International organisations our managers manipulated TT success stories in various scientific fields from countries all around the word. Acquired skills necessary for a successful case are transnational legal advice, patent issues and linguistic competences.


Attaining the state of art in our scientific fields we can judge an innovation or facilitate its budding in various environments


We coalesce your excellent idea with the right teams that can implement it globally. Finding the right people to work with is the cornerstone of every project. This is particularly true for international projects where culture and attitude differences must act as catalysts for results


We match your specific needs for a grant from private or public sources. Our experts have been raising funds successfully from virtually every DG that provides Grants.


A pre-screening of the state of the art is the first stage of writing a successful proposal and the patent application is the last stage of a successful research project. In between there are many steps that we manage.


Depending in the project and the consortium clients include public authorities, regional Authorities, International organisations, Universities, Research centers, SMEs and companies that act globally.

We Have the people.

Working successfully across cultures involves adapting to cultural differences in ways that enable meaningful communication. Our project managers have this adaptive behavior and create an environment that allows diverse project members to work through their differences and jointly create new ways of work.

Tailor-made software.

Project Management Simple

After a long market research, OSM realized that all available commercial software were unable to cover the specific needs of its projects, either because of their complexity or because they lacked of specific capabilities to respond to demands. Trying to modify this inadequate software OSM discovered that the whole process would cost much more in working hours, financial cost with unreliable results. So the only way out of this harsh scientific and professional problem, was the creation and development of a quit new program of our own.

So P.M.Simple was born.

A software in a unique version easy to be used by private user or experienced scientists because it is based upon four fundamental principles:simplicity, flexibility, easy learning curve and the most important unparalleled interactivity with the user (adaptability – mobility - individual impact – esthetic friendliness).

P.M.Simple is a data based application that offers full knowledge, visibility and full control over any kind of project. The system received data from individual users, combines them and final extract them in text form as reports. The data are stored in a database designed with a view to filter the results and presents the required feedback. The application can run in any internet enabled device such as a desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. P.M.Simple uses a quite simple layout at the same time, while it can be really complicate according to the needs of the user.
