'The project aims at designing, developing, scaling-up and optimizing a pre-industrial process towards the mass production of “silkene”, a bionic silk fiber reinforced with graphene, or other nanomaterials such as nanotubes, directly spun by silkworms. The idea is simply based on nanomaterial ingestion and subsequent “silkene” spinning by silkworms. Silkene is expected to be significantly stronger and tougher that its natural counterpart. Since silk produced by silkworms has already impacted our society, the impact of SILKENE project could also be significant. The process under consideration should in this project be technically verified, optimized and taken to a pre-commercial stage, for applications in industrial sectors such as smart or high-performance technical fibers, textiles, and related reinforced composites. The concept has been already preliminarily (see http://arxiv.org/abs/1504.06751) demonstrated at the laboratory scale with spiders, within our ERC Starting Grant 'Bio-inspired Hierarchical Super Nanomaterials' (BIHSNAM).'

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SILKENE" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
