The DYNACOMP project involves industrial industrial and academic partners. A leading global producer of advanced composites (HEXCEL) and a manufacturer of precision scientific instrumentation (MM) participate in the project. IMDEA is a worldwide recognized research institution at the forefront of composite research, will lead the scientific direction of the programme. UPM and MADRI+D complete the project team, in order to monitor the quality of the training programme and to explore the viability of the doctoral training proposed after the end of the project.
- IMDEA Materials Institute (IMDEA) is a non-profit research institute (~100 employees) devoted to carry out research in Materials Science and Engineering in Madrid (Spain). IMDEA is committed to the excellence in research and to foster technology transfer to the industrial sector. IMDEA holds a well-established international reputation in the areas of processing, microstructural analysis, characterization and multiscale modelling of advanced materials for applications in transport, energy and information technology as well as on the exploration of emerging materials and processes for sustainable development. Research activities and technology transfer to industry at IMDEA is carried out within the framework of research projects funded by national or international organizations or directly through contracts with industry.
- HEXCEL (HEXCEL) is a leading global producer of advanced composites, serving commercial aerospace, space and defence applications and other industrial markets. HEXCEL today offers a breadth and depth of products and services that is unmatched in the industry. From their worldwide manufacturing facilities, HEXCEL manufactures the full spectrum of advanced material solutions – this includes everything from carbon fibre and reinforcement fabrics to pre-impregnated materials (or “prepregs”) and honeycomb core, tooling materials and finished aircraft structures.
- Micro Materials (MM) is a manufacturer of precision scientific instrumentation. MM provides innovative, versatile nanomechanical test instrumentation, and respond to developments in applications in response to customer and market requirements.
- Fundación Madri+d (MADRI+D) is a non-profit organisation established in 2002 under the Regional Government of Madrid with the objective to strengthen and coordinate Madrid Region R&D Regional System (MADRI+D is a network of 47 institutions including universities, public research bodies and business organisations) through common projects and initiatives in the areas of: 1) Technology-based Entrepreneurship, 2) Technology Transfer, 3) European Research Area, 4) Science and Society and 5) Quality of the Higher Education System
- The Technical University of Madrid (UPM) is a public institution dedicated to higher education and research funded in 1971 through the integration of the Higher Technical Schools, which up until then made up the Higher Technical Institutes. It is therefore specialised in the fields of engineering, architecture and science. The 2 Early Stage Researchers of the DYNACOMP project will enrol on the Doctoral program “Structures, Foundations and Materials Engineering”.
