TRAP project

TRAP: nanotechology

Tools for rational processing of nanoparticle based materials: the aim is at strengthening the scientific base for the rational processing of nanomaterials and creating technology platforms.

Simulation tool

M3: macro-level modelling

MacroModelMat: Macro-level predictive modeling, design and optimization of advanced light weight material systems.

HINT-S program

H-INT-S: composites modelling

Looking at soft/hard matter composites to establish a knowledge base for an intelligent design of functional polymer-based composites.

3D design

STREAM: additive manufacturing

The performance of Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes of STRuctural Engineering materials strongly depends on optimal printing material properties and printing parameters, supported by specifically developed monitoring and simulating software tools.

NANOFORCE: fibre reinforced composites

Next generation nano-engineered polymer hybrids: developing structural composite materials with increased durability, improved recyclability and low weight.

Photovoltaic cells

SOPPOM+: printed functionalities

Solution based processing for printed functionalities. Three main directions are foreseen within this program: printed electronics, printed photonics and printed energy.

Self-healing material

SHE: self-healing

Self-healing engineering materials: cementitious, polymeric and coating materials with the ability to heal damage autonomously.
