Key Specialties - Materials Science, Polymers, Micro- & Nanotechnology

Our consultants have extensive experience in managing research and industrial processes in polymers, inorganic coatings, chemicals and micro- & nanotechnology, for example: thin film deposition techniques, toughening and fracture mechanisms, display and electronic device materials, sensors, MEMS and nanomaterials. Our consultants are contracted as external experts for the European Commission's €3.5 billion programme in “Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies”.

Projects we have undertaken in this area include materials for smart windows, gas turbines, wind turbines, biomedical implants, photovoltaics, diamond coatings and reinforced panels to name a few.

We specialize in providing expert advice and opinions on technologies and technology companies. We work for groups looking to buy or invest in technology companies (i.e. conducting due diligences), but do also advise on technology licensing and strategy and provide opinions for law suits. Our team of acclaimed experts are based in Europe, the US and Asia and we work on projects anywhere in the world.

Due Diligence Investigations

Diligence investigations usually require a broad range of insights and expertise. Consequently our team comprises senior professionals with outstanding track records in one or more of the following areas: leading technical innovation, management of technology companies, intellectual property management and international patent law. All VorteQ projects are directly, and personally, managed by one of our Principal Consultants. All VorteQ's experts are on long-term contracts and, importantly, there are strong and longstanding personal and professional relationships between our consultants ensuring efficient internal collaboration. In areas where we may not have sufficient expertise, our consultants are called upon on to recommend a 'special appointee' that they know and trust to form part of the team for that particular project.
