Project description

CoACH – Advanced glasses, Composites And Ceramics for High growth Industries European Training Network (ETN)


CoACH provides career development and training opportunities for researchers who are in their first 4 years of research career in both the public and private sectors.
Politecnico di Torino coordinates the CoACH project, funded by the European Commission through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks action (MSCA-ITNs).
CoACH is an inter/multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial programme as it includes 5 academic partners and 10 private companies, from seven different European countries. CoACH will promote international excellence in glass, ceramic and composite science and technology, modelling, design, characterization and commercialization of advanced glass, ceramic and composite based products.
The 15 recruited PhD researchers will benefit from direct access to state-of-the-art research equipment and expertise. They will be trained in creative, independent problem solving under time and resource constraints typical of a scientific and technical working environment in continuous contact with the industrial world.
The CoACH ETN will provide training-through-research in:

  • Glasses and composites for HEALTH care industries
  • Glasses, ceramics and composites for the ENERGY production and ICT industries
  • ENVIRONMENTALLY-friendly, low cost glass, ceramic and composite materials
