Objective 1: To develop CF-based composites with multi-functionalities (i.e. a combination of enhanced mechanical properties, electrical conductivity, thermal stability, flexibility) by the incorporation of nanomaterials.

Objective 2: To develop cost-effective manufacturing processes which consider sustainability and recycling/energy (new (bio) - precursors/ bioresins and life cycle), and safety (safe-by-design and toxicology).

Objective 3: To evaluate new configurations in lighter structural composite taking advantage of nanotechnologies to sustain damage from lightning strike for Zone 2A of the Horizontal Tail Plane.

Objective 4: Tolook for the optimum processes and the best multiscale reinforcement combinations using synergistically experimental testing and analytical together with computational modelling techniques.

Objective 5: To use the CF-based materials developed from MODCOMP to re-design caliper and steering knuckles for brake systems with reduced weight (>20%), increased stiffness (>20%) and enhanced performance (faster response to driver actions and improved safety)

Objective 6: To demonstrate innovative secure storage modules, flat pack shelter system and training sailing craft with reduced cost and high performance (corrosion, UV and abrasion resistance, rigidity and increased thermal properties).

Objective 7:To promote the exploitation of industrial-preferred composite materials and standardize activities throughout the production chain.

Objective 8:To disseminate outputs for raising the profile of the new MODCOMP technologies.

Objective 9:To identify new potential market for the developed fibre-based composite materials in avionics, construction, and electronics industry.

Objective 10: To evaluate the industrial impact of MODCOMP-concept with respect to economic as well as technical aspects.
