Partner offer (competences/expertise)

In dArTe _Department of Architecture and Territory of Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria
work more than fifty full time professors and the same number of PhD and PhD Students.
An integrant part of dArTe is the Building Future Lab_ BFL an applied, permanent and interdisciplinary research lab. BFL formed of six different Divisions carries out and offers certification and testing services in the Construction Sector. Provided services are based on Testing and Analysis executed according to standardized (UNI/EN, ASTM, AAMA, ecc…) or experimental protocols.
Main activities of the Divisions can be referred as Prototyping, Modeling, invasive and non-invasive Diagnostic Tests, large and small territorial scale Topographic Survey, Material Characterization, Seismic Structural Testing, Buildings Test in Off-shore Environments, Energy feasibility according to Renewable Energy Sources from solar energy to waves motion.
Referring to Call, dArTe main research interest and explainable skills are focused on the following fields:
_ Material innovation and technological transfer, with special interest in study and sperimentation of composite fiber-reinforced materials with plant fibers;
_ Technological analysis and technical feasibility check of design and/or retraining interventions;
_ Complexity, standardization, critical condition of relationship between technical information and executive design;
Regarding the first area of investigation, LabMat&Com (Materials and Components Laboratory Division of Building Future Lab Laboratory) deals with a set of activities - information, investigation, analysis and testing - ranging from material characterization to the proposition of studies on new materials behavior, and components and systems geared to the use of traditional and local materials and techniques improved in terms of compatible and overall quality of yield and performance.

ERC sectors - SH3_1 Sustainability sciences environment and resources; SH3_6 Transportation and logistics, tourism; SH3_7 Spatial development, land use, regional planning; SH3_8 Urban, regional and rural studies; SH5_10 Cultural heritage, cultural identities and memories; PE8_3 Civil engineering, maritime/hydraulic engineering, geotechnics, waste treatment; PE8_9 Production technology, process engineering e PE8_11 Sustainable design (for recycling, for environment, eco-design) - are references for dArTe basic and applied research actions.
