Description

During the CRP, the following expected outputs are being considered, and will be defined during the pre-CRP CM planned to be held in 2017:
- Protocols for preparation of new active and intelligent polymer-based packaging materials by radiation techniques
- Protocols for preparation of polymer-based packaging materials by combined 3D printing or electrospinning and irradiation methods
- Data on radiation resistance to gamma, EB and X-ray irradiation

Objectives

The proposed CRP will pursue the following two main objectives:
• It will endevour to create a collaborative interdisciplinary network of radiation technology experts and their laboratories to address the current challenges in grafted membrane technology;
• The established network will be working jointly to develop innovative formulations and methodologies, and to establish advanced structure-properties relationships for the design and for the fabrication of high performance membranes in the perspective of specific uses.

Specific objectives

To develop processes, techniques, protocols for radiation-grafted membranes for cleaner environment and sustainable energy development.;

To investigate key factors behind scientific challenges in radiation grafting, such as structural and functional parameters, methodological and technological aspects;

To endeavour in transfer of research result to end-users;

To establish and develop the network of collaboration in the field of radiation-grafting.
