After several years of intensive technical and organizational work, performed and financially supported by a group of industrial and other organizations (TÜV SÜD, TÜV Austria, EnBW, MAN, Shell, TÜV Rheinland SA, Bayer TS, BMILP China, DNV, Lloyd's and others), and lead by Steinbeis Advanced Risk Technologies (convener A. Jovanović, project manager F. A. Quintero) the new EU standard on Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) EN16991:2018 was published on May 1, 2018 by NEN (The Netherlands)! (see https://www.nen.nl/NEN-Shop-2/Standard/NENEN-169912018-en.htm).

 Fundación madri+d, as a partner of the Enterprise Europe Network, in collaboration with the Advanced Materials and Nanomaterials Spanish Technological Platform (MATERPLAT), the European Technology Platform for Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies (EuMaT) and the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) as Spanish National Contact point for NMBP, will organise a Brokerage Event to address the main topics of the NMBP call of 2019 in which materials R&D are expected to have a major impact.

The objectives of this Brokerage event are two-fold: present insights, expectations and tips from the European Commission on the 2019 NMBP topics as well as constitute a unique international networking platform to find the right partners for a successful H2020 proposal.

SHAPE, the SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe is a pan-European, PRACE-based programme supporting HPC adoption by SMEs. The Programme aims to raise awareness and equip European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities opened up by High Performance Computing (HPC), thus increasing their competitiveness.

 

HPC is a powerful technology that can enable the development of new products or services, reduce time-to-market and cost of R&D or increase quality. The opportunities opened up by HPC are vast and an increasing number of SMEs turn to HPC in order to create new business opportunities.

 

The Programme will help European SMEs overcome barriers to using HPC, such as cost of operation, lack of knowledge and lack of resources. It will facilitate the process of defining a workable solution based on HPC and defining an appropriate business model.

WG 3: Nanomaterials and Nano-Assembled Materials

Chair: Daniele Pullini (CRF) and Lars Montelius (INL)

Under construction !

Scope and objective of this WG

This will include materials issues related to the following:

  • Multifunctional (sensing, actuation, low-friction and anti-wearing, improved wettability for painting, etc.) nano-assembled materials for components and micro-systems: focus on improving properties of existing materials, novel functions, modelling, low cost solutions;

  • Functional packaging materials for MST: focus on nano-assembled materials for high temperature operation (up to 600°C), nanoassembled materials fabrication – from lab to plant.

  • Recyclable high performance polymer nano-composites (biocomposite and ), Metal Matrix materials and advanced metal-polymer-ceramic composites;

  • Engineered nanostructured surfaces, focus on modelling of mechanical and tribological properties from nanostructuring;

  • Low cost fabrication of coatings for harsh environments (very high temperature(600°C), strongly oxidizing, highly wearing); particular attention on single material coatings (single element or alloy);

  • Modelling of quantum-properties of nanostructures such as nanowires and CNT, nanorods, nanoparticles. Microsystems including nano-objects of novel functionality.

The WG 3 priorities are presented in the following document
