FRONTIERS 4

FRONTIERS I-V: “Multifunctional surfaces at the frontier of knowledge” are collaborative projects supported by the Basque Government Industry Department under the ELKARTEK Programme.

- Total budget: 10 M€

- Duration: March 2015 - December 2020

The project

FRONTIERS I-V projects have allowed the deployment of an instrument to coordinate and articulate the cooperation among the main Basque R&D entities in the field of Surface Engineering, integrating different capabilities and surface technologies.

FRONTIERS I-V are collaborative projects with a high basic research content that address the area of Surface Treatments; an important field of knowledge at scientific, technological and industrial level. The main objectives of the project are:

 - Generation of cutting-edge knowledge in the area of Surface Engineering, progressing in the capabilities of Basque R&D entities in surface modification, coating and finishing technologies.

 - Solving some of the major challenges in the field of Surfaces, with a medium- to long-term vision, as a key competitiveness factor for strategic industrial sectors in the Basque Country.

On the other hand, the projects’ direction is also driven by the tendencies of the 4th industrial revolution (Industry 4.0). FRONTIERS I-V incorporate the design of experiments and simulation and modelling methods as tools to progress to advanced manufacturing.

The knowledge generated by the projects is leading to the development of multifunctional surfaces that could fulfil the requirements demanded by industry in the field of Surface Treatments in the years to come.

Partnership

The consortium comprises several Basque organizations, such as CIDETEC, TEKNIKER, TECNALIA, MTC, AZTERLAN, LORTEK, CEIT, CIC-biomaGUNE, GAIKER and the University of the Basque Country and Mondragon University. The participants are experts and leaders at national and international level in different surface treatment technologies.

Our role

CIDETEC Surface Engineering is the leader of the projects FRONTIERS I-V, carrying out the management, coordination and administrative tasks of the projects. Moreover, CIDETEC is conducting and participating in various work packages related to Tribology, Corrosion, High temperature, Aesthetics, Hygiene, Cleaning, Biosurfaces and Multifunctionality.
