THE HORIZON PRIZE ON MATERIALS FOR CLEAN AIR

To improve air quality in cities, the challenge set for this €3 million prize is to develop an innovative and well-designed material solution that will reduce the concentration of particulate matter in the air.

The Horizon Prize on materials for clean air will be awarded to the most affordable, sustainable and innovative design-driven material solution that can reduce the concentration of particulate matter in urban areas.

You will be able to apply until 23 January 2018.

 WORTH PARTNERSHIP PROJECT STRENGTHENS THE SMEs COMPETITIVENESS THROUGH CREATIVITY  (close 31st December 2017)

After the success of the Pilot Project that involved a total of 79 small-medium businesses (SME) and 34 European enterprising partnerships, WORTH Partnership Project is back with renewed expectations.

Embarked in 4 years journey, the new objective is to support 150 cross-boundary partnership projects involving a minimum of 450 companies (SMEs and startups)

Worth Partnership Project is funded by COSME programme of the European Union to support collaborations between SMEs and start-ups of designers, art & craft and creative people with peers’ tech firms and manufactures to create innovative and disruptive products and ideas.

The Worth Partnership Project application call will be on going throughout 4 years, with different windows of opportunity. The first call, that will open the 18th of September 2017, will close the 31st December 2017 for the first partnership formation

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 (IPPT)

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
