We Support Your Work

MultiComp CA15107

is currently composed of 34 COST countries, represented by 63 Management Committee members.

MultiComp is a COST Action

designed to bring together theorists, experimentalists and industrialists in the field of nano-carbon materials technology.

Promoting and Spreading Excellence.




Excellence is everywhere. COST’s open and bottom-up nature has contributed decisively to creating an attractive ecosystem for all

types of researchers and innovators.

Multi-Functional Nano-Carbon Composite Materials Network (MultiComp)

COST Action CA15107

MultiComp is a COST Action designed to bring together theorists, experimentalists and industrialists in the field of nano-carbon materials technology. Although carbon nanotubes, graphene and Few-Layer Graphene (FLG) have been used to improve the properties of composite materials, two main problems remain to be solved before these composite materials can realize their full potential:

(1) adequate dispersion of the nano-carbon reinforcement material, and (2) strong enough interfacial bonding between the nano-carbon reinforcement elements and the composite matrix. In addition to making modified MWNTs such as branched-MWNTs, the Action will explore other possibilities of strengthening composites by integrating FLG (using existing as well as unpublished methods); theoretical modelling of these nano-carbons and composites; due consideration and evaluation of the Health, Safety and Environmental implications; making and testing composites e.g. mechanical and electrical/thermal, HRTEM of interphases, voltage-contrast SEM of percolation networks, sensing and photocatalytic properties; development of new composite materials with Electronic and Multi-Functional properties.

This Action will provide an ideal platform, especially via STSM exchanges, for permanent established researchers, post-doctoral workers and ECIs to enhance their research-related skills as well as their innovation and enterprise skills in this international network involving both academic and business enterprises.



MultiComp: Creating Connections

During the course of the the MultiComp cost action our members made connections across many participating countries, including international partner countries. The above map, produced by the COST Data and Impact Analysis OFffice demonstrates the large number connections made based directly upon participation in MultiComp events.
