ReMade@ARI, a hub for materials research, that we are a proud member of, opened a new call for proposals on March 1. You can apply at apply.remade-project.eu/ until April 30.
ReMade@ARI (REcyclable MAterials DEvelopment at Analytical Reserach Infrastructures) is funded by the EU Commission’s Horizon Europe programme and co-funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation.
The project commits to leverage the development of innovative, sustainable materials for key components in the most diverse sectors, such as electronics, batteries, vehicles, construction, packaging, plastics, textiles and food on an unprecedented level. The overarching vision of the ReMade@ARI consortium is to make a substantial contribution towards breaking the vicious circle of shrinking resources and increasing amounts of waste, in an area in which the consortium members possess the necessary advanced research infrastructures and the expertise to contribute.
A radical shift to the circular economy is urgently needed to cope with the challenge of finite resources decreasing at a frightening pace while the quantity of waste increases alarmingly. This requires substantial research on materials with a very high recycling capability while exhibiting competitive functionalities.
In ReMade@ARI, the most significant European analytical research infrastructures join forces to pioneer a support hub for materials research facilitating a step change to the Circular Economy. ReMade@ARI offers coordinated access to more than 50 European analytical research infrastructures representing a broad landscape of facilities.
At the HiLASE Centre, we provide facilities for laser processing (primarilly focused on surface material modification, testing and assessment), ion elemental depth profiling and X-ray diffraction. For more details please see the project application page.
