Europe has the key advantage to host 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 innovative self-sensing and multifunctional self-healing strategies and advanced repair technologies into the market.
SMARTINCS merges the technical know-how and complementary skills of experts in academia (11 partners), multinational companies and SMEs (8 partners), and national research agencies, certification and pre-standardization bodies (3 partners), being pioneers in the area and having successfully collaborated in the past in several European and national network and research projects
The SMARTINCS consortium was born from the COST action CA15202 SARCOS on self-healing and preventive repair of concrete structures. Moreover, SMARTINCS partners are/were involved in several other (European) projects related to the topic SMARTINCS. It concerns RESHEALIENCE, LORCENIS, RM4L, INNOVACONCRETE, HEALCON, SHEMAT, and CAPDESIGN. Other related projects in which SMARTINCS partners are involved are: OpenMode and GEOHEAL
