JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Three Innovations in Research grants were recently awarded to Philadelphia University professors to conduct groundbreaking new research in support the Philadelphia University MAG Composites Institute. The professors will explore new composite materials, from hybrid-glass and innovative building materials to sustainably-produced composites from industrial waste.
The research grants will help fund the professors’ composites-related research and serve as a platform for securing additional funding. The projects that were selected to receive the grant were:
Each of the Innovations in Research grant winners will continue their work over the next year, reporting their findings and taking composites research in new directions.The Philadelphia University MAG Composites Institute was established in 2012 to support research and development of new fiber-based composites that could have broad applications in industry, including the aerospace, automotive and energy sectors. The Institute was funded in part with a $1.1 million contribution from MAG IAS, whose chairman and chief executive officer is Mo I. Meidar, a Philadelphia University alumnus and member of the University’s Board of Trustees.The Philadelphia University MAG Composites Institute builds on Philadelphia University’s legacy as the nation’s first textile school and its considerable expertise in advanced textile-related research.
