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.
Objectives of ADEMAT Network
Train students and researchers in the field of high-tech engineering and materials science
Develop participants' multicultural skills (languages, culture), team work mentality and entreprenurial profile
Train grant holders with special consideration for environmental protection and quality of life
Train specialists to carry out custom-made engineering in order to respond to the local conditions of material processing and applications in each country of the network
Focus the development of specialists towards making a significant impact in the development of the regions involved in this project
Enhacement of strategic links between academic and scientific institutions, countries and regions of Latin America and Europe
Generate a multinational core of experts to provide effective knowledge networking strategies and links for the future
