European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research - COST Action

Understanding and Controlling Nano and Mesoscale Friction.

Recent endeavours to understand nanotribology, and the related possibilities to control friction, adhesion and wear by nanodesign, have generated an interdisciplinary scientific area, with tremendous potential impact on technology and everyday life, including safety, economy, life quality, energy and material saving, towards a sustainable development. This COST Action gives the opportunity to boost the research in this field by favoring scientific collaborative exchanges. This proposal already gathers over 30 groups covering 16 COST countries.
