Mission

The center's research activities will focus on different stages of new materials development for each proposed themes. Major efforts are deployed for rheologic models, production of new implementation processes, material characterization, mechanical properties optimisation, production and design of parts, and on rehabilitating materials in civil engineering structures. The objective consists of producing less expensive new materials with higher chemical and mechanical properties than those currently manufactured.

Research Axes

  • High performance polymer systems
  • High performance composite systems
