Universidad de Burgos (UBU)-ICCRAM, a privileged research and innovation core, integrating an International Excellence Center in Critical Raw Materials for Advanced Industrial Technologies (ICCRAM), and a competence Center dedicated to advanced industrial technologies. ICCRAM takes part in several Action Groups (i.e. 1.8 SUBST-EXTREME, 1.7 RESET) within the European Innovation Partnership in Raw Materials, and the proposed Knowledge and Innovation Community from the EIT (KIC-Raw). ICCRAM is coordinating CRMs, industrial, and resource efficiency strategy in Castilla y Leon region (Spain). UBU-ICCRAM is a key agent in the RIS3 plan of Castilla y León. UBU-ICCRAM, as well as founder member of industrial clusters such as CYLSOLAR (Castilla y Leon Renewable Energy and Energy solutions industrial cluster) and CBECyL (cluster of capital goods and industrial auto-mation of Castilla y León), with a strong alliance with large scale industrial associations like SERCOBE (National Associa-tion of Manufacturers of Capital Goods) or international organizations like EU-NANOFUTURES.
Universidad de Burgos (UBU)-ICCRAM has expertise at two levels of the value chain: Design and testing of the product (multiscale modelling, computer integrated engineering of the product, materials testing, eco/nano-toxicity) and at the Innovation level (dilated experience in contact with industry to develop and implement technological solutions).
Role in the project
WP2 – UBU-ICCRAM will manage the full structure of the project, and will coordinate the different tasks, taking care of providing timely all the deliverables. WP3 – UBU-ICCRAM contributes in the exploration of new alloys, definition of the families and their constituents. Discovery and understanding the new alloys by multiscale modelling: In particular DFT refining and Molecular Dynamics of grain boundaries. Contribute to anticipate operation by Finite element Analysis. WP5 – UBU-ICCRAM will contribute to the analysis of the physicochemical properties of the new alloys (XRD, AFM, TERS, RAMAN …) and to their irradiation in their facilities (UBU-CENIEH) and large scale infrastructures (singular facilities at the National Accelerator Centre in Spain). WP6 - UBU-ICCRAM will contribute in communicating results to the society, and train new generations (Early Stage Researchers) in the discovery fundaments in which ICARUS relies.
