  • 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".

  • ICARUS M12 Progress and Action Check Meetings

    On the 26th and 27th of October 2017 the ICARUS Consortium conducted the M12 Progress and Action Check Meetings respectively in Brussels, Belgium.

    The yearly (12M) Progress Meeting was held at ENEA - EU Liaison Office; The meeting aimed at presenting the progress performed during the ICARUS second semester while, in the same time, it provided the opportunity for extensive discussions and exchange of ideas among partners on their future activities.

    The M12 Action Check Meeting was hosted at the Covent Garden Building bringing together the consortium partners, the European Commission Project Officer and the EC reviewers. The main objective of the M12 review meeting was to present the scientific and technical achievements of the project during the past twelve months and provide sufficient information to allow the EC to perform the project assessment against the applicable Description of Work.

    In the end of the meeting the European Commission Project Officer and the EC reviewers provided their valuable feedback to the ICARUS partners and concluded that important work has been performed during this period.

  • ICARUS at the 7th EASN International Conference

    The ICARUS Project gladly announces its participation in the 7th EASN International Conference, one of the highlights of the European aeronautics calendar. The conference will take place from 26 to 29 of September, 2017 under the title “Innovation in European Aeronautics Research”.

    It will include Plenary Talks by renowned guests and Roundtable Discussions with key-figures from the academia, industry, research community and policy makers. It will also include Thematic Sessions on a series of domains and disciplines of A&AT along with Technical Workshops where evolving ideas, technologies, products, services and processes will be discussed.

    The ICARUS Project will exploit the opportunity to disseminate its concept, achievements and expected results in a dedicated Session for research projects. We are looking forward to meeting you there.

  • ICARUS at the INCOME 2017

    The ICARUS project will be present at the 9th International Conference on Mechanochemistry and Mechanical Alloying taking place in Košice, Slovakia from 3 to 7 September 2017. The ICARUS will be represented by our Italian partner Francesco Torre (CSGI) presenting a poster under the title: "Thermodynamically stable nanostructured metal alloys by mechanical alloying: The ICARUS Project" . If you would like to learn more about the science powering ICARUS activities, save the date in your diary. We will be glad to meet you there.





This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 713514.
