NMP 14 – ERA-NET on materials

  • basic and applied research on material design
  • novel material solutions or novel combinations of known materials
  • fibre-reinforced materials, corrosion-resistant materials
  • coating and coating techniques
  • material characterisation, e.q. fatigue and wear behaviour

NMP 16 – Extended in-service life of advanced functional materials in energy technologies

  • high cycle fatigue experiments
  • strain-controlled low cycle fatigue experiments
  • quasi-static uniaxial tensile and compression tests
