Fellowship & Grant details

Fellowship posted by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (24/06/2014 04.00)

Intensification of Catalytic Processes for Clean Energy, Low-Emission Transport and Sustainable Chemistry using Open-Cell Foams as Novel Advanced Structured Materials (IFOAMS)

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The programme overlaps with sub-task 2.1 of the PRIN research project, titled I-FOAMS.

Task 2 - Development of optimized catalytic foams - Subtask 2.1

Improved mechanical technologies for the manufacture of low-cost sponges optimized as catalyst supports will be developed. This may require the adoption of unconventional fabrication materials, geometrical parameters and manufacturing methods differing from those of commercially available metal sponges, originally designed for other applications (filtration, noise reduction, etc.). Indications for the selection of the optimal foam design parameters will come from the fundamental studies of Task 1.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
