    Composite Materials – A Key Part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution
    Our world stands on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter life as we know it. A classic example of this is the already-viable driverless car. Lightweight, high performance, multi-functional and cost-effective fibre reinforced composites are key materials for the realisation of this digital dream.
    The Irish Composites Centre (IComp) supports relevant companies in the whole of Ireland by providing world class S&T together with consultancy, networking, information and short term problem solving services. Composite materials offer opportunities to Irish industry across aerospace, land transportation, marine, construction, consumer products, bio-medical and renewable energy, for example, as well as in the supply chain. IComp is working to ensure that Ireland fully benefits from the bourgeoning global composites market and emerging technologies by focusing on manufacturing and cost reduction. This requires innovation in design, materials development, processing technologies, assembly and dis-assembly of structures, reduction in energy consumption, security and development of the supply chain, and recycling.
