National and International Projects Experience

CIMNE carries out various research and development activities and has participated in a large number of technology transfer projects in cooperation with over one hundred and fifty enterprises and organisations from different countries.

Some of our Projects


HIRF-SE Hight Intensity Radiated Field Synthetic Environment

HIRF Synthetic Environment research project has the goal to provide to the aeronautic industry a numerical modelling computer framework which can be used during the development phase (including upgrade), in order to ensure adequate electromagnetic performance, but also in addition and in a considerable reduction to certification/qualification testing phase on air vehicles. + info


MRECT. Multiscale reinforcement of semi-crystalline thermoplastic sheets and honeycombs

The M-RECT project aims to create multiscale-reinforced semi-crystalline thermoplastics (PEEK and PPS), which will outperform all reinforced polymers in terms of strength, stiffness, creep and mainly damping by up-scaling and further developing state of the art production methods, within cost-efficient manufacturing routes. + info
