18 Month meeting of FP7 project AMSCopper, San Sebastian, Spain (19-05-15) 

The 18th months meeting was held on the 19th of May, at Tecnalia, Spain. During the meeting all issues related to the commencement of the AMSCopper project were presented. Multiple technical discussions took place regarding several points that were brought during the day. Representatives of all partners were present, expect of Metropolitan. A plan of upcoming technical work has been in details discussed and defined. An overview of the status of the project was given by the coordinator CERTH that followed by each partner making presentations of their involvement and achievements so far. The meeting surrounded detailed technical discussions that focused on WP4 and 5 that was basically placed on the status and progress concerning the composite electrodepositon, the generation of CuNi alloy Metal Matrix Composite (MMCs) coatings as well as their requirements concerning functional properties and the bath composition. Tecnalias presented process protocols related to the evaluation of the self-cleaning and antibacterial measurements. During the meeting issues related to the commencement, management, and finance of the project were reviewed. It followed a visit to Tecnalias facilities in, where a significant part of the characterization and testing is performed.

E-MRS 2015 Spring Meeting, Lille, France (11 to 15-05-15)

European Materials Research Society E-MRS has more than 4,000 members from industry, government, academia and research laboratories, who meet regularly to debate recent technological developments of functional materials. The E-MRS differs from many single-discipline professional societies by encouraging scientists, engineers and research managers to exchange information on an interdisciplinary platform, and by recognizing professional and technical excellence by promoting awards for achievement from student to senior scientist level. As an adhering body of the International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS), the E-MRS enjoys and benefits from very close relationships with other Materials Research organizations elsewhere in Europe and around the world. At this meeting the AMSCopper project was presented by Tecnalia through a poster presentation.

12 Month Review meeting of FP7 project AMSCopper, Brussels (05-11-14)

 

All the partners of the AMSCopper project met in Brussels, REA at the 5th of November 2014 at the occasion of the 12 months review project meeting. The consortium discussed with the project officer and the project evaluator about the status and the progress of the project. The major objectives, necessary for the second period work, have been achieved and the project proceeds on time. The results presented mainly by the RTD partners Brunel University (doping of TiO2 through HEBM), CERTH (electrodeposition of Metal Matrix Composite, MMC’s, coatings and Tecnalia (evaluation of self-cleaning and antibacterial action) showed a good advancement of knowledge compared to the state of the art. Future plans have been discussed and defined.

6 Month meeting of FP7 project AMSCopper, London, UK (20-06-14)

All the partners of the AMSCopper project have met at the Brunel University, London (UK) at the 20th June 2014 at the occasion of the 6 months project meeting. Representatives of almost all the partners were present. An overview of the status of the project was given by the coordinator CERTH that followed by each partner making presentations of their involvement and achievements so far. The meeting surrounded detailed technical discussions that focused on WP2 that has as further target the doping process of TiO2 through HEBM. Brunel University presented the progress of WP2 and detailed discussions followed by interacting all the partners. Emphasis has been placed on the electroplating techniques, the generation of specifications and requirements for the new coating, bath designs and chemistry, materials to be used. During the meeting issues related to the commencement, management, and finance of the project were reviewed.
