7th Technical Committee







December, 10-11th 2014 – Manno, Switzerland

Last 10th and 11th of December, in Manno, CH, was held the 7th Technical Committee, the 4th Steering Committee and the 3rd Exploitation Committee at SUPSI, The University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland.

SUPSI is the leader of Pillar 2, the technological pillar focused on high heating rate processing. In the field of materials science, SUPSI has been involved in many national and international projects aimed at the development, characterization and modelling of ceramic, polymeric and composite materials for high technology applications.

In the previous six-months period many activities were carried out by the partners and the meeting resulted to be a good occasion to share the results achieved. It resulted to be also very fruitful for the planning of the forthcoming dissemination activities, which were discussed by the Exploitation Committee members.

During the meeting, Prof. Alberto Ortona welcomed the Consortium to visit  the laboratories, where it was possible to see the MW furnace developed by FM, object of the experiments on Graphite Expansion that SUPSI is currently carrying out.
