ARD CVL MATEX PROGRAMME
CONTEXT & OBJECTIVES
MATEX is a collaborative project financed by the Centre-Val de Loire region as part of the Ambition, Research and Development programme. Its mission is to bring together research, industry and higher education in order to create a dynamic around multimaterials in extreme conditions. The objective is to facilitate the industrial transition.
The programme is led by the CNRS in partnership with the University of Orléans the University of Tours, the INSA CVL engineering school and LE STUDIUM IAS. It currently brings together 9 regional laboratories with recognised expertise in the fields of materials and for their instrumental park.
Developed in conjunction with industrial partners, MATEX's 16 scientific projects are divided into four main research themes:
- Polymer and carbon-based multimaterials
- Multicomponent coatings of metals and/or ceramics and performance under extreme conditions
- Materials under stress in extreme conditions
- Development of specific instrumentation
These scientific projects are carried out in close collaboration with industrial partners in the field of multimaterials under extreme conditions.
