Special Issue "Advanced Glasses, Composites and Ceramics for High Growth Industries"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
“Advanced glasses, Composites And Ceramics for High growth Industries” (CoACH) is a European Training Network (ETN) (http://www.coach-etn.eu/) funded by the Horizon 2020 program. The project is studying the next generation of materials that could bring innovation in the healthcare, construction, energy and other sectors. From new bioactive glasses for bone implants to eco-friendly cements and new environmentally friendly thermoelectrics for energy conversion, the novel materials developed in CoACH pave the way for innovative products, improved cost competitiveness and positive environmental impact. The broad range of research activities conducted within the framework of CoACH includes (i) new antibacterial glasses and hybrid coatings; (ii) energy efficient, low-cost and eco-friendly cement and insulation materials produced from industrial wastes; (ii) innovative materials for energy production and harvesting and (iv) sensors and polymer composites used in harsh environments. The present Special Issue will contain papers resulting from the CoACH project, showcasing the breadth of materials and processes developed during the project.
