The Industrial Innovation Info Days hold on 3 and 4 October 2017 in Brussels, under the auspices of the European Commission Directorate General for Research & Innovation.

The purpose of this major event, which gathered more than 1000 participants, was to inform stakeholders about activities in the “Key Enabling Technologies” part of Horizon 2020.

EuMat participated actively in this event.

LUBMAT 2018: SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN 5th-6th JUNE 2018

LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.

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
