FORTH visits Artia premises

On the 22nd of February 2018, Artia hosted collaborators from the EU funded research project “SOLUTION” consortium partner institution: Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas. Visiting our premises were FORTH research director Spyros Yannopoulos and Early Stage Researcher Kapil Bhorkar who is participating in the part of the project “SOLUTION” being carried out in this institution.

After providing a general overview of Artia’s research capabilities and a tour of our premises with our ESR Aleksandra Lelevic and the ARTIA’s managing director Panos Tsatsoulis, the day has continued with a discussion on individual research projects and possibilities of future collaboration resulting in a mutual agreement on significant cooperation prospects between our two institutions.

Artia’s role in the project is the development of pulse plated electrolytic composite solid lubricant coatings. The target is to determine the appropriate deposition conditions (including particle type) that will provide coatings with specific properties, satisfying the requirements set by customers. For more information on SOLUTION, please visit the project’s official website http://www.itn-solution.eu/
