ELISSA @ AMANAC Fire Workshop (May 2015)


Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain 28 May 2015


As part of the AMANAC-CSA activities, the AMANAC Fire Workshop, organized in the frame of the seventh edition of the International Congress on Architectural Envelopes (ICAE 2015) with the contribution of 3 cluster projects (AEROCOINS, ELISSA, NANOCOOL), was held on May 28th providing an opportunity for exchanging experiences and knowledge in the field of Fire Engineering. Four lecturers, Prof. Alberto Fina (POLITO), Dr. Aitor Barrio (Tecnalia Research&Innovation), Prof. Michael Delichatsios (FIRESERT - ULSTER University) and Dr. Dionysis Kolaitis (National Technical University of Athens – NTUA) shared with the audience their knowledge in new trends in retardant materials, overview of fire characterization of materials, the state-of-the art and the future needs in Façade Fire tests as well as computational tools for fire research.

More than 50 participants attended the event. More information and material from the Workshop are available in the link: http://amanac.eu/achievements/fire-safety/

12th International Vacuum Insulation Symposium -IVIS 2015 Award Paper (Oct 2015)

Nanjing, China 19-21 September 2015

Certificate of Honor for the paper entitled “Determination of the Thermal Conductivity of VIPs at Fire/Elevated Temperatures” of the authors Dimos A. Kontogeorgos, Georgios K. Semitelos, Ioannis D. Mandilaras, Roland Caps, Libor Kubina, Maria A. Founti given by the scientific committee of the 12th International Vacuum Insulation Symposium (IVIS 2015).
IVIS 2015 was held in the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), Nanjing, Jiangsu, China and aimed to present the state-of-the-art research for the Super Insulation Materials (e.g. Vacuum Insulation Panels, aerogels etc.), offering a global platform for discussion and collaboration among researchers, manufacturers, building designers, project managers and end users. A total number of seventy seven (77) papers and posters were presented during the IVIS conference authored by academic and industry researchers from Europe, Asia and North America, which were focused on comprehensive issues ranging from materials, systems, applications and long-term performance.

ELISSA @ EuroNanoForum 2015

Riga, Latvia 10-12 June 2015
