  • ICARUS in Treviso

    The ICARUS M24 Progress Meeting was successfully held between the 13th and 14th of December, 2018 at Treviso, Italy. The meeting was hosted by the MBN Nanomaterialia S.p.A. in their premises gathering representatives of all entities involved in ICARUS. The meeting aimed at discussing the progress performed during the ICARUS fourth semester while, at the same time, it provided the opportunity for a fruitful exchange of ideas among partners on their future steps.
    During the second day of the two-day meeting, the project team was offered the unique opportunity to be guided at the MBN facilities. The close collaboration between partners will continue online until the next face-to-face meeting in Patras, Greece in spring 2019.
  • ICARUS @ CMSE2018 in China

    On November 1-4 2018, ICARUS coordinator prof. Nicolas A. Cordero spoke about coarsening-resistant nanocrystalline metal alloys at the 7th Global Conference on Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE2018) in Xi'an, Shaanxi, China.

    The conference was organized by the School of Materials and Chemical Engineering of the Xi’an Technological University and was supported by the Northwestern Polytechnical University, Shaanxi University of Science and Technology, Xi'an Aeronautical University.

    The CMSE 2018 provided an extensive platform for scientists, researchers and scholars to present and share their research results in the fields of Materials Science and Engineering, discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.


    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

  • 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.



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