What is ADEMAT?


The ADEMAT Network is a project within the ALFA II programme of the European Union. ADEMAT is a network, whose main objective is the training of students and researchers in high-tech engineering materials. The Network involves 13 academic institutions; 7 from Latin America and 6 from Europe. The Latin American member countries are Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Venezuela. The EU member countries are Austria, Germany, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom


The project was approved by the EU-Commission in 2003 and the activities will be carried out for a duration of 36 months, starting in July 2003 and finishing in July 2006.  


Training in high-tech engineering materials covers the newest developments in the fields of material science, production technology and characterisation methods. Available topics include: cellular and porous materials, nano/micro structured materials, light alloys and advanced composites and glasses. Experimental investigations are assisted by computational modelling and simulation


The concept of environmentally beneficial technologies is extended within this project, involving not only recycling techniques but also the production and selection of materials encompassed by the term total life cycle enhacement.
