Nano-tailoring organo-mineral materials - Controlling strength and healing with organic molecules in mineral interfaces

A Marie Sklodowska Curie European Training Network under Horizon 2020

Excellence in research

NanoHeal brings together top academic groups and industrial research labs spanning a wide range of disciplines and expertise, companies with direct interest in the production of concrete and end users providing cases for specialised applications. The expertise available in NanoHeal covers state of the art experimental, computational and theoretical techniques, and brings together physicists, chemists, materials scientists, engineers and industrialists working on a common theme.  This collective expertise enables us to tackle the most challenging problems from a bottom up approach, covering all the relevant length scales from nanometer to millimetres. The interpretation of millimetre length scale experiments using nanoscale data is not trivial. NanoHeal will provide a route to establish a link between length scales

Excellence in education

NanoHeal is designed to integrate partners from different disciplines and between academic and industry sectors in order to build a training and research environment that is much stronger than any single group within the network. Insights, methods and knowledge accumulated in one discipline or sector travel very slowly to other sectors and disciplines. The NanoHeal network will train young researchers in speeding up cross-fertilisation between disciplines and sectors. This will be very valuable for the careers of the research fellows. The fundamental knowledge and experience acquired by the research fellows in the network will also be applied to real scientific needs identified.
