New training in innovative concrete repair
Concrete is one of the most reliable construction materials that can deteriorate over time. The loss of performance highlights the need for increased investments in maintenance and/or intensive repair/strengthening works. Innovative self-healing materials and strategies can be a solution that will also minimise waste production. The EU-funded SMARTINCS project will train a new generation of creative and entrepreneurial early-stage researchers (ESRs) in the prevention of deterioration of new concrete infrastructure via innovative self-healing strategies. It will also train them in advanced repair technologies for maintaining existing concrete infrastructure. The project brings together the complementary expertise of research institutes pioneering in smart cementitious materials, strengthened by leading companies along the SMARTINCS value chain, as well as certification and pre-standardisation agencies.
