Amas isn international scientific network for advanced materials and structures
AMAS-ISN: international scientific network for advanced materials and structures

The challenges faced by the knowledge-based society in quest of safe and healthy life conditions make advanced materials and structures a vital part of almost every technological or engineering project. To ensure optimal, durable, safe and environment-friendly performance of the advanced materials and structures, a concerted effort of experts in materials science and applied mechanics assisted by physicists and chemists is needed. In the International Scientific Network for Advanced Materials and Structures (AMAS-ISN), a number of competent research centres agreed upon combining their expertise to tackle a wide spectrum of problems ranging from manufacturing processes, laboratory testing to service conditions of advanced materials and structures.

Amas isn international scientific network for advanced materials and structures1
AMAS-ISN: international scientific network for advanced materials and structures

Network consists of:

  • 36 Polish research institutions (30 full- and 6 associate members)

  • 24 research teams from Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, South Korea, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom

    However, the AMAS-ISN is open for new members from academia and industry as long as their profile and competence fit the Network's objectives. It is worth stressing that the AMAS-ISN members' skills range from pure experimental research of material microstructure, via advanced mathematical modelling of materials and structures, computer simulations of processes and numerical implementation of mathematical models, to technological excellence of the advanced materials' manufacturers. It is expected that AMAS-ISN, as sizable and diversified as it is, will stimulate complementary and interdisciplinary research projects of high applicability to modern engineering and technology.


Mobilise and concentrate the disperse scientific and industrial potential in "advanced materials and structures" to create a durable international structure capable of developing leading-edge research while spreading the accumulated knowledge in- and outside the network and enhancing the technological skills of the related industry. The specific objectives of AMAS-ISN are as follows:

  • to create a vehicle for strong scientific cooperation in the field of advanced materials and structures

  • to coordinate research efforts of the network members by jointly generating, executing and monitoring interdisciplinary research projects (NoE, STREP, IP, nationally funded projects, etc.)

  • to benefit from network members' complementarity in expertise ranging from microstructure investigations of advanced materials to structural analysis and design

  • to share research facilities (experimental and numerical)

  • to establish interaction with manufacturers of advanced materials and get feedback from them as a stimulus for new research projects

  • to avoid "double-research"

  • to disseminate accumulated knowledge (education, promotion, conferences, publishing)


Thematic Groups

  • Material microstructures

  • Biomaterials

  • Intelligent systems

  • Durability and Safety

    The AMAS-ISN has obtained a financial support from the Polish State Committee for Scientific Research aimed at strengthening Network's integration and international dimension. It is planned that Thematic Groups will create "task-forces" around selected challenging problems of interdisciplinary character. For research teams the best way to integrate is to jointly carry out specific research projects. In addition to that some other organizational measures are foreseen to enhance the integration. These include:

  • permanent exchange of information

  • construction of AMAS-ISN databases: fields of expertise, experimental equipment, modelling and computing tools

  • exchange of Ph.D. students

  • short and medium-term visits of researchers

  • regular specialized workshops within one or more Thematic Groups

  • annual coordination meetings of the whole Network

Network of excellence kmm noe knowledge based multi functional materials
Network of ExcellenceKMM-NoE(Knowledge-based Multi-functional Materials)


In general terms, the main objective of this project is to mobilise and concentrate the dispersed scientific and industrial potential in the KMM field to create a durable and efficient organism capable of developing leading-edge research while spreading the accumulated knowledge in- and outside the Network, and enhancing the technological skills of the related industry.

The main objectives of kmm noe
The main objectives of KMM-NoE:

  • to contribute to creation of the ERA in the field of KMM oriented towards advanced industrial applications

  • to network, strengthen and consolidate the fragmented and dispersed RTD potential in this area and apply instruments assuring long-lasting and progressive integration

  • to achieve a deep integration in the form of new legal entity and cooperating research and industrial networks

  • to continuously enhance the research and technological skills of the network to gain and hold the leading world position in this area
