OYSTER: H2020 European large collaborative project on "Open characterisation and modelling environment to drive innovation in advanced nano-architectured and bio-inspired hard/soft interfaces".
Grant Agreement 760827
OYSTER uses contact mechanics to bridge adhesion data at multiple length scales and link interfacial adhesion to physicochemical properties.
OYSTER brings Europe’s first-class laboratories and SMEs to take existing nanoscale characterisation technologies towards widespread utilisation in process optimisation and model validation.
OYSTER achieves this by sharing metadata in an Open Innovation Environment (OIE), where new paradigms of multi-scale contact mechanics are validated on selected application oriented reference materials through continuous interaction with the European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC)
