The INDustrial TECHnologies 2018 conference will open its doors in Vienna on 29-31 October, 2018.

The event will combine keynote presentations, discussions, a matchmaking event, fish-bowls, world cafés and an exhibition on new industrial applications for research on Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing. Plenary sessions with great political impact on the industrial landscape will be followed by parallel sessions organised around three main pillars:

1) Technologies for sustainable growth

2) Innovative Industry for citizens

3) Ecosystem and framing conditions

Seize the opportunity to meet experts from industry, research and public authorities from more than 30 countries in Europe and across the globe!

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 led 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).

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)
