In January 2015 the project AMANAC (Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology Cluster) started
with the goal to create a long lasting collaboration and coordination platform. The project is funded by the European Commission under Coordination and Support Actions (CSA) and emerged from the

The cluster project wants essentially to bring together European projects with similar topics in order to foster synergies and develop mutual strategies and procedures for, e.g. testing, standardization and exploitation.

At the moment more than 25 projects are within the AMANAC cluster. These are grouped into six different thematic areas consisting of:

a. Nanotechnology-based high performance insulation systems
b. Materials with reduced embodied energy
c. Nanotechnologies for HVAC systems
d. Novel materials for smart windows
e. Nanotechnologies for multifunctional lightweight construction materials and components
f. Technologies and materials for a healthier indoor environment

is within the thematic area e “lightweight construction materials and components”.
Further projects in this area include ELISSA, ADAPTIWALL, FOAMBUILD and MF RETROFIT.
More information can be found on the
AMANAC homepage.
