Limiting the climate change-induced temperature increase to less than 2°C will require strong reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Lightweight materials and fibre-reinforced composites in particular, are a key enabling technology to achieve this goal. Current composite applications are however strongly overdesigned due to a lack of reliable design tools and predictive models for their mechanical properties. Developing, using and applying these models requires interdisciplinary researchers with a strong background in both modelling and experiments, but such researchers are scarce.
The FiBreMoD project aims to train 13 such researchers to become multi-talented and interdisciplinary researchers that will be highly coveted in the field of composites.

In times of populist movements all over Europe, it is good that science facilitates the cultural exchange to unite the next generation of researchers.
FiBreMoD ESRs travelling to the FullComp ITN workshop in Hannover: a great networking opportunity
Martinus, Francisco, Christian, Arsen and Fabio attended the workshop organized by FullComp on the failure analysis of composite materials. A lot of science involved, but it's not only that!
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 722626. Within H2020-EU.1.3.1 the goal is to train a new generation of creative and innovative researchers, able to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit in the Union.
