MODCOMP aims to develop novel engineered fibre-based materials for technical, high value, high performance products for non-clothing applications at realistic cost, with improved functionality and safety. Demonstrators will be designed to fulfil scalability towards industrial needs and focus on TRL5/TRL6. End users from a wide range of industrial sectors (transport, construction, leisure and electronics) will adapt the knowledge gained from the project and test the innovative high added value demonstrators. An in-depth and broad analysis of material development, coupled with dedicated multi-scale modelling, recycling and safety studies will be conducted in parallel for two types of materials (concepts):
- CF-based structures with increased functionality (enhanced mechanical, electrical and thermal properties).
- Carbon nanofibre (CNF)-based structures for flexible electronics applications.
Meanwhile, standardization, up-scaling, cost-effectiveness and production of reference materials will also be considered.
