The objective of this IRSES programme is to establish long-term stable research cooperation between the partners with complimentary expertise and knowledge. The project objectives and challenges present a balanced mix between industrial application focused knowledge transfer and development and more far-looking studies for potentially ground-breaking applications of using carbon-based nanomaterials and nanostructures for advanced sensing applications (CarbonNASA), including high-temperature strain sensors, Raman laser systems, fiber Bragg grating sensors for lithium batteries monitoring. No one group in Europe can accomplish each work package alone. We have to collaborate with non-European groups in order to gain their skills and expertise in these specific areas.
This project involves a 4-year program of knowledge transfer and networking between Aston University, UK (Aston), the University of Aveiro, Portugal (UAvr), Alfred University, USA (Alfred), Norfolk State University, USA (NSU), National Institute for Materials Science, Japan (NIMS), Chinese Academy of Science, China (CAS), and Changshu Institute of Technology, China (CIT).
