The SUSPENS project has been selected for EU funding under Horizon Europe programme. The aim of this ambitious international project is to accelerate the transition to sustainable structural sandwiches and hollow composites parts for automotive, boat and aerospace markets. The recruited PhD fellow will develop approaches to monitor the structure/property relations in biobased thermoset resins (e.g. biobased epoxy resins and unsaturated polyester resins) with special emphasis on the curing process and the curing kinetics. For this purpose, correlation of different techniques such as spectroscopy (NMR, real-time FT-IR), rheometry and calorimetry (e.g. DSC) will be undertaken. Internal communication (with other partners) and external dissemination with the different stakeholders will be an important part of this project.
