Accelerating technology transfer and developing innovative technologies for use in the highest quality products


CoACH provides a multidisciplinary training opportunities in the field of high-tech glasses, ceramics and composites based on effective and proven industry-academia cooperation, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovate Training Networks action (MSCA-ITNs). Our scientific goals are to develop advanced knowledge on glass and ceramic based materials and to develop innovative, cost-competitive, and environmentally acceptable materials and processing technologies. Read more »


Graphene is usually obtained industrially by expanding and separating graphite layers using combined thermal and chemical methods. These methods are typically energy-intensive, low yield and use large amounts of solvent. Attempts to produce and disperse graphene in situ (in the polymer) focus on viscous thermoplastic systems but little attention is being paid to low viscosity epoxy resins, despite a need to improve their properties and a world market of £9.8bn in 2013. Read more »


The aim of ADMACOM is to develop innovative manufacturing technologies based on advanced design of interfaces and of joining materials for aerospace components, funded by “Factories of the Future-Public-Private Partnership" programme for research and innovation in the manufacturing sector (FP7-2013). Read more »
