ERC Advanced Grant TimeMan


Rheology of Earth materials: closing the gap between TIME scales in the laboratory and in the MANtle




MADISON is motivated by our lack of knowledge on the mechanical behavior of key rocks located in subduction zones, where tectonic plate meet. The mechanical strengths of these rocks play a major role on mass transfers at depths, and on shallow, human-impacting processes such as seismicity and volcanism. The rocks physical properties will be studied by three complementary approaches: in-situ experiments, numerical models and natural samples observations.




Proteinolab : un laboratoire commun UMET-Ingredia dont la feuille de route est centrée sur le développement d’Isolat de protéines de lait différentiées optimisant la fonctionnalité des produits hyperprotéinés, en particulier des boissons nutritionnelles. Ces innovations produits et leurs pilotages passent entre autre par une meilleure compréhension des relations Structures et Fonctions des protéines.


ANR-DFG TIMEleSS - Phase TransformatIons, MicrostructurEs, and their Seismic Signals from the Earth's mantle


The TIMEleSS project aims at studying interfaces in the Earth’s mantle combining observations from seismology, mineral physics experiments, microstructures, and wave propagation modeling. It is supported through a bilateral grant, from the ANR in France and the DFG in Germany with partners at Université de Lille, the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster, and the Deutsche GeoForschungsZentrum, Potsdam.


ANR CAPSPIN - Implants anti-adhérents et antimicrobiens pour la chirurgie viscérale élaborés par plasma froid atmosphérique et electrospinning


The aim of CAPSPIN project is to combine and optimize through experimental design two eco-friendly processes for the elaboration of antiadhesive and antimicrobial biodegradable nanofibers coated onto intraperitoneal polypropylene implants. Electrospinning process is an innovative process used to produce biodegradable monolithic and core-sheath nanofibres. Atmospheric cold plasma technology is used for the activation and functionalization of different polymeric substrates at the extreme surface only.


ERC Advanced Grant FireBar-Concept, Multi-conceptual design of fire barrier, A systemic approach


The development of science and technology provides the availability of sophisticated products but concurrently, increases the use of combustible materials, in particular organic materials. Those materials are easily flammable and must be flame retarded to make them safer. In case of fire, people must be protected by materials confining and stopping fire. It is one of the goals of the FireBar-Concept project to design materials and assembly of materials exhibiting low flammability, protecting substrates and limiting fire spread. The objective of FireBar-Concept is to make a fire barrier formed at the right time, at the right location and reacting accordingly against thermal constraint (fire scenario).


Interreg Imode - Innovative Multicomponent Drug Design


A collaborative research on multicomponent pharmaceutical products (co-amorphous and co-crystals) and medical devices loaded with bioactive molecules. IMODE is funded by the European Interreg 2 Seas programme and cofinanced by the European Fund for Regional Development (ERFD).


ANR NanoPiC - Etude du comportement piézoélectrique multi-échelles de composites innovants micro- et nano-structurés


Le projet NanoPiC a pour objectif de mener un programme de recherche et de développement de matériaux piézoélectriques innovants et ayant des propriétés améliorées, à partir de composites céramiques - polymère structurés. Il s’agit d’une part de fabriquer des composites comportant des domaines micro- et nano-structurés de céramiques non toxiques et de polymère fluoré et d’autre part de caractériser le comportement piézoélectrique aux échelles macroscopique et nanoscopique. La compréhension des comportements piézoélectriques de ces matériaux composites structurés est un enjeu scientifique fort et ouvre la voie à l'utilisation de ces matériaux pour des applications dans le domaine des pMUT (piezoelectric Micro machined Ultrasonic Transducers).


ANR STIC - Self-stratifying Intumescent Coatings


Replace the traditional (Primer/Coating/Topcoat) process by formulating a self-stratifying coating showing: adhesive properties to a substrate, good durability when submitted to accelerated aging tests, flame retardancy. Objectives: increase fire retardant effect on plastics (Polycarbonate), increase fire protective effect on steel structure


RheoMan: a five-year, ERC-funded (Advanced Grant), project to model the rheology of the Earth's mantle


The goal of RheoMan is to model the rheology of the Earth’s mantle from the properties of its constitutive minerals and rocks. It proposes a novel approach based on multiscale modelling of rheology. The goal of multiscale modelling is to link our understanding of a few elementary mechanisms (usually at the microscopic scale) with a behaviour observed at the macroscopic scale. In solids, plastic deformation results from the motion of crystal defects: point defects, dislocations, grain boundaries.
