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.

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 4: Knowledge-based Structural and Functional Materials

Chair: Michal Basista (KMM-VIN) & Arnaldo Moreno Berto (ITC)

Under construction !

Scope and objective of this WG

This will include materials issues related to the following:

  • advanced metal-ceramic composites (structural and multifunctional)
  • functionally graded materials (FGMs) and coatings
  • intermetallics and shape memory alloys
  • ceramics: high-temperature, lightweight and porous
  • metals and alloys
  • thermoelectric materials and composites for thermal management
  • hydrogen storage materials and systems
  • functional multilayer materials for sensors and actuators
  • functional carbon nanotube (CNT) /glass composites
  • fibre reinforced glasses for optomechanical applications
  • magnetic glass-ceramic or polymer matrix composites
  • ceramic bioglass foams with polymer coatings for tissue engineering
  • bioresorbable glasses and glass-ceramics
  • bioactive materials and biofibres
  • bioactive anti-bacterial coatings for metals, ceramics, glasses
  • phase change materials (e.g. PCM textiles) and PCM in organic and metallic matrices
  • conducting polymer materials
  • nanostructured and hybrid (inorganic/organic) materials and coatings

It is envisaged that in addition to the technical priorities, generic topics that will be covered include

  • Regulatory, legislative and policy considerations which may affect the materials supply chain including environmental legislation and raw materials supply
  • Socio-economic aspects relating to the usage of energy and how these impact on the Sector and materials in particular.
  • Regional strengths, opportunities and issues.
  • Training & Skills
