The functionality of the intelligent bulk materials will be incorporated in various critical transport sector components, such as pavements, aircraft wing leading edges and car bumpers. These components will be demonstrated under relevant conditions at prototype level for the aerospace, automotive, and transport infrastructure sectors.
MASTRO multidisciplinary consortium is made of 17 partners from 6 EU countries, with a wide range of expertise: ACCIONA, ALKÈ, Applynano Solutions, ARKEMA France, AXIA Innovation, CETMA, CENTI, CITEVE, DIAD Group, Embraer Portugal, Le Centre Technique Industriel de la Plasturgie et des Composites, PINOUT Solutions, Superior Graphite Deutschland, Universitat d’ Alacant, Università degli Studi di Salerno and The University of Sheffield. It covers the whole value chain needed to achieve the main scientific and technological goals.
All the efforts devoted in the MASTRO project to fulfil its objectives can be grouped into the following tasks:
- Research activities developed at small to medium scale at laboratory environment
- Up-scaling of the manufacturing processes, products and models, ending with prototype testing
- Validation of the technologies developed according to the requirements and needs set by the end users
- Activities focused on boosting the future market uptake
