In the framework of EuCARD-2, an ambitious research program has been undertaken to investigate, manufacture and characterise novel composite materials. These are intended to combine optimum mechanical, thermal and electrical properties, such as mechanical strength, melting temperature, thermal shock resistance, electrical conductivity, and energy absorption.
These materials are of particular interest for thermal management applications for example high power density electronic packaging, aerospace, automotive, nuclear fusion and solar energy. This EuCARD-2 meets industry event aims to bring together experts in the research and industrial sector, to exchange ideas on the latest developments in design, manufacture, testing and applications of Thermal Management Materials.
The program features presentations from Airbus, AT&S, CERN, Crystal Innov, EUROFusion, Frazer-Nash Consultancy, GSI, The Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Morgan Advanced Materials, Politecnico di Torino, RHP-Technology and Tecnalia.
EuCARD-2 is co-funded by the partners and the European Commission under Capacities 7th Framework Programme, Grant Agreement 312453.
