Welcome to the Composite Vehicle Research Center website.The following web pages are intended to provide a brief overview of our activities; if you would like to find out more, please get in touch with me. You may also be interested in our latest brochure (Click here - opens in PDF).

We hope to create a new paradigm for a university research center through collaboration across the size scale, from nano to macro, i.e. from current revolutionary developments in material science to the design of advanced components and structures for vehicles. 

At the same time we aim to collaborate across the innovation process from breakthrough research through technology validation to product development by forming close relationships with participants in the innovation process, such as research organizations, designers, manufacturers, suppliers, and end-users.

 

Director, Nicholas J. Gianaris
