ICARUS brings together RTDs and industries to exploit synergies in order to achieve the project objectives. The industrial part of the consortium includes 4 SMEs leaders in materials production and engineering related to aerospace applications; plus 2 SMEs, leaders in knowledge transfer into industry. Besides, the complementarity of the research entities involved in the project is the basis to reach the scientific objectives proposed: UBU, specialized in materials, nanosafety and multiscale modelling; ENEA, leading the multiscale characterization of structures and properties of materials; CGSI expert in thermodynamic modelling, laboratory synthesis, fabrication of dense nc alloys and mechanical behaviour evaluation under extreme conditions; UniMi, leading researcher in nano-Calphad and FEM Simulation, production of crystalline amorphous composite materials and microstructure characterization; LTSM – UP: research group specialized in continuum modeling of materials and characterization of mechanical properties.

On the other hand, SMEs and Industries bring the following expertise: MBN, expert SME in producing the nano-alloys of interest on the pilot scale; Advamat, leader in fabrication of thin films by physical vapor deposition (PVD); Admatis brings space environment definition (focus on satellite business) and mechanical/thermal design, analysis, production, assembly and test for flight hardware; BRIMATECH, ESA broker and partner of its technology transfer programme will contribute with the assessment/review of the performance of the proposed alloys with space experts, as well as the exploitation/dissemination activities; AAC, created as a spin-off from the Austrian Institute of Technology is a leading SME in development, characterization, testing & qualification of space materials, advanced test methods and analysis of materials & surfaces; and EASN TIS, an SME that will be a clue contributor in dissemination & diffusion to industry, Academia and research establishments & general public (with BRIMATECH).


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