SMARTINCS | Self-Healing - Multifunctional - Advanced Repair Technologies in Cementitious Systems

Europe hosts pioneers and specialists in self-healing disciplines who can make the ambitious goals become a reality. They teamed up in the SMARTINCS consortium and include actors in all parts of the value chain, having the capacity to create the needed break-through to introduce the novel self-sensing, multifunctional self-healing strategies and advanced repair technologies into the market. 

SMARTINCS will implement new life-cycle thinking and durability-based approaches to the concept and design of concrete structures, with self-healing concrete, repair mortars, and grouts as key enabling technologies.

Goals of the research: 

  • to develop and model innovative self-healing strategies for bulk and local application;
  • to integrate self-healing into innovative service-life based structural design approaches by considering the effects on durability ;
  • to quantify and prove the eco-efficiency of newly developed smart concrete / mortars by life cycle assessment modeling;
  • to transfer the technology to the market. 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860006.
