ICARUS proposes a new thermodynamic methodology able to identify the elements and the relative chemical composition allowing a nanocrystalline state to occupy a relative minimum of the Gibbs free energy, which makes the nanostructure reasonably stable against coarsening. This approach will be integrated, in synergy with multiscale and thermodynamic (Nano-Calphad) modeling, in order to implement a ...

NANOmaterials for the REStoration of works of ART (NANORESTART)

Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Nov 30, 2018,

Currently there is a lack of methodologies for the conservation of modern and contemporary artworks, many of which will not be accessible in very short time due to extremely fast degradation processes. The challenge of NANORESTART (NANOmaterials for the REStoration of works of ART) will be to address this issue within a new framework with respect to the state of the art of conservation science. NA ...

Securing abundant, affordable, and clean energy remains a critical scientific challenge. Fortuitously, large shale formations occur within Europe. As the conventional gas production in Europe peaked in 2004, European shale gas could become a practical necessity for the next 50 years. However, the exploitation of shale gas remains challenging. Further, its environmental footprint is at present poor ...

Intelligent Structuring Systems for Complex Flowing Products (ISSFLOW)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2017,

"ISSFLOW aims at developing fundamental understanding of complex fluids to allow for the design of smart and functional gels and fluids via the development of novel rheology modifiers. A consortium of 5 partners (1 large industry, 1 SME and 3 academics) has been set up to exchange knowledge in the areas of rheology, sustainable synthesis and scale-up of novel molecules, modeling, characterization ...

Antimicrobial agents, such as antibiotics, have dramatically reduced the number of deaths from infectious diseases over the last 70 years. However, through overuse and misuse of these agents, many micro-organisms have developed antimicrobial resistance. Oligonucleotide therapeutics have the potential to become the new class of antibacterials capable of treating a broad range of infections. By acti ...

Advanced encapsulation technology for sustainable detergency (CAP-IT!)

Start date: Jun 1, 2010, End date: May 31, 2014,

"The CAP-IT! project aims for developing a deep mechanistic understanding of coating and encapsulation processes to stabilise actives in fluid compacted consumer goods. Seven partners from two companies, three universities, and six European countries will exchange knowledge and personnel to achieve breakthroughs in the field of sustainable detergency. The research programme will involve screening ...

Recent work has shown the possibility to drastically increase the reflection performance of the building envelop, using nanotechnologies. Standard metal oxides are already known for their solar reflection properties, but latest developments identified that nanotechnologies can improve Index of Reflectance from an average of 0,35 to 0,85 because of their effectiveness on Near Infrared wavelengths, ...

"Research towards 2D and 3D supramolecular crystal engineering is expected to play a key role in the development of controlled bottom-up fabrication of nanostructured devices. The ability to predict the self-assembly at different length scales, ultimately allowing to attain a full control over the interplay of kinetics and thermodynamics ruling the hierarchical self-assembly in inorganic and biolo ...

"Fossil fuels consumption is no longer going to be substained both for its environmental impact and for the limited availability of such fuels. Solar energy produced from photovoltaic cells based on organic or organic/inorganic hybrid materials has been proposed as a sustainable alternative. By selectively chosing the electronic properties of two semiconducting polymers, and by mixing them in a po ...
