The Cluster activity under H2020 aims to bring together EC funded projects to enable the sharing of ideas, results and concepts, contributing to the EU Strategic Research Roadmaps and to use the synergistic effect to improve the dissemination and exploitation of the project results and enhance their impact.
Five projects, which initially formed this council, relate to the sustainable production and recycling of carbon fibres (CF) and carbon fibre composites.
CARBOPREC, FIBRALSPEC and NEWSPEC investigate CF precursor development where cheaper CF and independence from international monopolies are some of the main aims. EUCARBON aims at independence from non-European suppliers. REFORM deals with the recycling of CF composites.
