Project Proposal


Title: Self-healing materials

Type Details: We are currently preparing a proposal for the following topic:
NMP.2012.2.1-3 Self-healing materials for prolonged lifetime
Technical content/scope: Nature has optimised its materials, where needed, for damage management, i.e. the occurrence of damage is accepted as a fact of life and natural materials can cope with damage because of inbuilt healing abilities. These have in recent years also been developed experimentally in new types of manufactured materials, thus creating a new or improved class of multifunctional materials - the so-called self healing materials.
The research proposals should address the substantial improvement of manufactured materials with the new functionality of self healing after damage caused for example by impact, abrasion, corrosion, wear, fire, ice, etc.
Modelling and characterisation as ancillary activities can be included. Standardisation and/or the production of (certified) reference materials may also be addressed, as well as appropriate novel inspection technologies and methods that might be required for damage detection for specific applications. Research in the field of regenerative medicine is excluded under this topic. In order to ensure industrial relevance and impact of the research effort, the active participation of industrial partners represents an added value to the activities and this will be reflected in the evaluation, under the criteria Implementation and Impact.
