New EU project launched to investigate new materials for extreme conditions

Posted on 11 April 2016

Researchers in the Department of Electronics, led by Prof Atsufumi Hirohata are involved in a new EU funded project, led by Università Politecnica delle Marche in Italy. The project consists of a multidisciplinary team of companies, scientists and technologists, which is composed by a network of 25 Countries across Europe and Israel. The project aims to find an innovative way to overcome the difficulties in the access to Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) that are expected to depress industrial sectors vital to Europe.

The project focuses in particular on the replacement of CRMs in high value alloys and metal-matrix composites used under extreme conditions of temperature, loading, friction, wear and, corrosion, in Energy, Transportation and Machinery manufacturing industries.
