The main objective of the proposed project is to create a research network to develop at national level the new concept of functionally graded nanostructured materials (FGNMs) starting from synthesis to applications. This new concept allows to fully integrating the material and structural considerations into the final design of structural product.


* Building an integrated research network at national level to ensure sustaining and acceleration of multidisciplinary researches in the field of new materials for thermal barriers coatings (strategic and traditional industries); actuators (microfluide devices for industrial security)
* Step by step assurance of activities integration and achievement of one local and national offer in the field of strategic and traditional industries and industrial security
* Integration within EUMAT platform of material and human excellence resources, concentrated on FP7 thematic areas; participation to European research programmes and technological platforms
* Capitalization facility of fundamental research in new technological fields (soft solution processes to synthesise functionally graded materials, infiltration technique) and “mature” technologies (plasma coatings technique) corresponding to European priorities

Objetivos especificos
