Short Description of the Organization / Department
IMS (RTU) has considerable expertise in the field of characterization, modelling, analysis and optimization of advanced composite materials, structures and technological processes. This experience has been obtained participating and coordinating many national and international projects on material science, aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding and construction engineering (FRAMEWORK 5: POSICOSS, SANDWICH, HYCOPROD; FRAMEWORK 6: ALCAS, FRIENDCOPTER, INTERSHIP, CASSEM, COCOMAT, DE-LIGHT, FANTASIA, SAND.CORe, ENCOMAR, MOMENTUM; FRAMEWORK 7: DESICOS, MAPICC 3D, COALINE, INNOPIPES, TransNEW, SEREN, COSMOS, COSMOS+; HORIZON 2020: COSMOS 2020, SEREN 3, SEREN 4, ETNA 2020; MATERA; M-ERA.NET; ERDF).
Previous Related Projects / Research Experience
Project INNOPIPES “Innovative nondestructive testing and advanced composite repair of pipelines with volumetric surface defects” under FRAMEWORK 7 program (Marie Curie Staff Exchange Scheme, 2012-2016) where RTU was the project coordinator.
