EULA NETWORK IN CERAMIC MATERIALS WITH ENVIRONMENTAL AND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

Objective

Commercial use of advanced ceramics is limited by the complexity and high costs of implementation; skepticism about the long-term stability and consistency of material properties, coupled with lack of industry-wide standardization, high cost of components and absence of performance tracking deterring the full-scale commercialization of advanced ceramics until recently. However, burgeoning research and developments and new product innovations are expected to drive new opportunities for advanced ceramics in the coming years. Additionally, growing impetus for environmental protection is likely to bolster demand for the use of the materials in replacement applications that are touted as environmentally unsafe. Of late, rising shipments of commercial aircrafts and future orders, particularly from the US and Asian countries, is expected to assure a stable market for advanced ceramic coatings in the next five years (2011 -2015).
EULA-NETCERMAT will be focused on advanced ceramic materials applied in high added value industrial sectors for both EU27 and LA countries with existing S&T cooperation agreement such as Argentina, Brazil and Chile. The specific scientific and technological issues where Marie Curie Fellowships will be focused on 3 main areas such as Science and Technology of Advanced ceramics, Socioeconomic studies and Impact on civil society.
