 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 6: Materials for Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)

Chairperson: Victor Acinas (AMAT) & Cecile Autret (Univ. Tours)

Scope and objective of this WG

Piezoelectric materials facilitate energy conversion from mechanical to electrical and vice versa. Thanks to the new technologies, enabling integration, they can be active as relatively small structures or parts of more complex systems, thus extending the frequency range in which they operate into high MHz range and the complex functionality, acting both as sensors, transducers and transmitters among other bringing close self-supported remote sensing systems for medical, safety and other applications.

Metamaterials are micro- and nanostructured artificial electromagnetic materials which offer an opportunity to realize electromagnetic material properties not available in nature, such as negative parameters, paramteres near zero, extreme chirality, and so on. They are rapidly maturing and become increasingly employed for the design of electronic and optical components, integrated circuits and functional devices. They will have ubiquitous applications ranging from the high speed computer chips to optical communications devices, high resolution imaging and biomedical sensors. Specialised electromagnetic materials will provide the necessary functionality for electronic devices and constitute the physical layer of the technologies dealing with electromagnetic signals in radio engineering, nanotechnologies, security, safety, and biology.

WG6 Scope:

  • Novel multifunctional oxydes – multiferroics, environment-friendly
  • Organic-inorganic composites as metamaterials & multifunctional structures
  • Micro and nano technologies for multifunctional structures
  • Functional materials with specific physical/electrical properties
  • Integrated systems based on multifunctional materials and structures
  • Artificial materials with exotic and extreme values of electromagnetic parameters
  • Fibre reinforced glasses for optomechanical applications
  • Magnetic glass-ceramic or polymer matrix composites
  • Phase change materials in organic and metallic matrices
  • Conducting polymer materials

Target/market groups

The topics are centred on materials & nanotechnologies as well as the related manufacturing & production technologies, while the applications concern most of EU priorities, namely:
  • Health (diagnostics, monitoring)
  • Transportation (safety, efficiency, reduction of pollution)
  • ICT (integrated components)
  • Energy (energy harvesting, energy conversion & management)
  • Environment & Security (detectors, sensors, NDE)
