Latest News


    The ICARUS project and its innovative activities were presented and promoted at the European conference “INDustrial TECHnologies 2018 - Innovative industries for smart growth” (INDTECH2018) held in Vienna from 29-31 October, 2018.

    INDTECH2018 was an event of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union that combined keynote presentations, talks, a matchmaking event and exhibitions. It provided an excellent opportunity to meet experts from industry, academia and policy to exchange information and to strengthen collaboration. INDTECH2018 anticipated 1,100 participants from more than 30 countries in Europe and across the globe.

    Our BRIMATECH and MBN colleagues who represented the ICARUS Project welcomed visitors to the ESA booth, where they could be informed about the ICARUS concept and latest achievements.

  • ICARUS dedicated Session @ the 8th EASN-CEAS International Workshop

    The ICARUS project is delighted to announce its participation in the 8th EASN-CEAS International Workshop on “Manufacturing for Growth & Innovation”, which will take place between 04 and 07 September, 2018 at the University of Glasgow, UK .
    Over the years the EASN conference has been established as a major European Dissemination event. The 7th international gathering of the EASN Association was attended by more than 350 researchers from various disciplines who presented their high quality recent achievements and new upstream research ideas.
    The ICARUS project will exploit this opportunity and disseminate its results and achievements in a dedicated session that will be held on the 6th of September, 2018 at Sir Charles Wilson building, Lecture Theatre from 14:40 until 16:20 and will be chaired by Nicolas Cordero (University of Burgos). The project will introduce its current progress and upcoming results through the following presentations:
    1. Modelling, fabrication and characterization of nanocrystalline metal alloys for the aerospace sector: The ICARUS Project – Overview (N. Cordero).
    2. Prediction of mechanical properties of nanocrystalline materials using Voronoi FE models of representative volume elements (P. Bazios, K. Tserpes, S. Pantelakis)
    3. Thermodynamic modelling of the stability of nanograined polycrystals (G. Kaptay, A. Dezso)
    4. Development and evaluation of nano-grains in tungsten based MMC ( G. Gergely, D. Pethő, T. Mikó, M. Svéda, F. Kristály, K.Bohács, A. Roósz, Z. Gácsi)
    5. Facile microstructural SEM characterization and accelerated testing for fast screening of nanostructured materials in powder metallurgy ( A. Rinaldi , C. Mingazzini, D. Mirabile Gattia, E. Serra , U. De Angelis, F. La Torre, F. Delogu, A. Locci , A. Bianchin).
    We will be more than happy to meet you there!
  • The July 2018 edition of the EASN Newsletter is out, including ICARUS latest news

    The latest news and activities of the ICARUS project were presented to the European Aeronautics Science Network through the July edition of the EASN Newsletter which is distributed to approximatelly 15,000 scientists, policy makers & key players in the European Aeronautics industry.
    "ICARUS (Innovative Coarsening-resistant Alloys with enhanced Radiation tolerance and Ultrafine-grained Structure for aerospace application) progresses its pace towards the successful completion of two full years of operation. On the 14th and 15th of May, 2018 the ICARUS team held its M18 Progress Meeting in Vienna, Austria. During the two-day meeting, the project’s latest results and achievements were presented while the overall progress of the project and next steps were discussed."

  • ICARUS M18 Progress Meeting

    On the 14th to 15th of May, 2018 the ICARUS Consortium conducted its M18 Progress Meeting in Vienna, Austria. The two-day project meeting was hosted by our Austrian project partners, Brimatech and AAC, in the impressive building of the Industry House. Partners, representing the 11 Consortium organizations, were gathered in the Austrian capital city to present the latest scientific and technical achievements, discuss the overall progress of the project, exchange ideas and agree on next steps.

    Additionally, the project team enjoyed the fruitful experience of the Common Exploitation Booster, a common support service which offers guidance on projects under FP7 and H2020 programmes on how to bridge the gap between creating research outputs and ensuring their exploitation.

    The close collaboration between partners will continue online until the next face-to-face meeting in Italy, in autumn 2018.

  • ICARUS @ FET2RIN Training

    The ICARUS Project is glad to announce its participation to the FET2RIN Training from March 2018 to May 2018, in Brussels. The FET2RIN training supports FET projects to reach out investors and make a larger impact on society. It aims at facilitating collaborations to set the ground for the take up of Future and Emerging Technologies and FET projects by overcoming obstacles related to market acceptancy and accessing business leaders including entrepreneurs, early stage investors and crowdfunding communities.

    The ICARUS Consortium, takes advantage of this great opportunity in order to get empowered on how to better validate research results and how to connect with early stage investors and crowdfunding sources.


  • ICARUS in the January 2018 issue of the European Aeronautics Science Network Newsletter

    An ICARUS related article has been published in the January issue of the European Aeronautics Science Network Newsletter highlighting the significant progress of the project​.

    "Having completed a first full year of operations, the research units involved in the ICARUS project are in the position of providing significant outcomes to foster progress in the future. Classical thermodynamics, Nano-Calphad and multiscale modelling techniques are combined into a unique predictive tool that will enable the exploration and design of new binary and multinary nanostructured metal alloys. The final aim is to obtain metal alloys with enhanced mechanical properties, coarsening resistance and radiation damage tolerance".
