Under the most competitive and prestigious scientific call within the H2020 looking for highly risk, forefront technologies, ICCRAM coordinates at EU level the FET-OPEN project ICARUS. ICARUS proposes a new methodology to discover new nanocrystalline tailored alloys, capable of exhibit incredible response and self-healing properties under extreme conditions. Results of ICARUS will be tested and innovated in first line industries under the support of the European Space Agency.
The main objective of SUPERMAT is to create a trans-European Center of Competences to provide innovation services to key industry well identified in the Smart Specialization Strategy of target EU Regions. As a result, the project will boost the research and innovation activity of institute IMNR (Bucharest-Ilfov region, Romania) by increasing the knowledge and technology degree of innovation potential for sustainable advanced materials operating under extreme conditions. Development and understanding of these materials open new opportunities to enhance the competitiveness of regional and National SMEs in priority sectors like: tool making, energy production, aerospace, capital goods and equipment.
