Green INSTRUCT

Green Integrated Structural Elements for Retrofitting and New Construction of Buildings. The Green INSTRUCT project will develop a prefabricated modular structural building block that is superior to conventional precast reinforced concrete panels by virtue of its reduced weight, improved acoustic and thermal performance and multiple functionalities. The Green INSTRUCT block consists of over 70% of… Read More »

ENERGY KEEPER

The aim idea of EnergyKeeper is to allow individual users and urban communities in remote (isolated) areas to benefit from a local low carbon economy. The project will enable the communities and individual users to participate in the smart grid context, it will develop an intelligent storage solution optimizing the communities demand and supply. The… Read More »

HYPOSENS

Nano-confined photonic system for detection of breast cancer spread to the lymph nodes The Vision of HypoSens is to develop a widely accepted, non-invasive and crucial prognostic tool for breast cancer progression in early stages to help clinicians and specially oncologists to decide about prompt therapy approaches to patients and improve quality of life and… Read More »

ECO-COMPASS

Composites are important materials used in aircrafts due to their excellent mechanical properties combined with relatively low weight enabling the reduction of fuel consumption. Expensive carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) are used in fuselage and wing structures and increasingly replace classic metals. Glass fibre reinforced plastics (GFRP) are mainly used for the interior panels. All… Read More »

POROUS4APP

POROUS4APP – PILOT PLANT PRODUCTION OF CONTROLLED DOPED NANOPOROUS CARBONACEOUS MATERIALS FOR ENERGY AND CATALYSIS APPLICATIONS The main idea of POROUS4APP project is based on the fabrication of functional nanoporous carbonaceous materials at pilot plant scale from natural resources (polysaccharide). The process for nanoporous carbon fabrication is already well known as one of the POROUS4APP… Read More »

MIDES

MIDES -Microbial Desalination for Low Energy Drinking Water   Shortage of fresh water has become one of the major challenges for societies all over the world. Water desalination offers an opportunity to significantly increase the freshwater supply for drinking, industrial use and irrigation. All current desalination technologies require significant electrical or thermal energy, with today’s… Read More »

EIROS

Eiros – Erosion and Ice Resistant cOmposite for Severe operating conditions   In the wind power generation, aerospace and other industry sectors there is an emerging need to operate in the low temperature and highly erosive environments of extreme weather conditions. Such conditions mean current materials either have a very short operational lifetime or demand… Read More »

RESET

Re-use of Thermoplastic Composite Current European policies plead for new technologies capable to implement feasible processes for recycling of products in their end of life cycle. Within this framework the re-use of  thermoplastic composites, is a recurrent topic within the aircraft manufacturing industry which needs a suitable solution for the high performance thermoplastic composites once… Read More »

BATCure

The goal of BATCure is to advance the development of new therapeutic options for a group of rare lysosomal diseases – neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) or Batten disease. There are > thousand affected across Europe, with a combined incidence of c.1:100 000. The NCLs are devastating and debilitating genetic disorders that mainly affect children, who… Read More »
