A propos

International Center in Advanced Materials and Raw Materials of Castilla y León (ICAMCYL)

ICAMCYL  is a Spanish private non-profit research foundation, addressing the main challenges affecting the Global Energy and Modern Industry Systems: how to provide new secure, clean, and affordable energy sources for a sustainable circular economy; and how to provide advanced materials with high added-value for industry modernisation. ICAMCYL is a key player in the European strategy for the efficient management of industrial resources, energy efficiency, eco-innovation and substitution of critical raw materials. Our strategic strengths, wide international industry network (Iberian Sustainable Mining Cluster with more than 50 industry partners, international advisory board, international industry alliance), active participation in key European Innovation Platforms (Smart Specialization Platforms of Industrial Modernisation, EIP Raw Materials), Technology platforms (MATERPLAT, SOLARCONCENTRA, EUMAT, NANOFUTURES) governmental support, innovative areas of expertise and EU projects portafolio ( NEXTOWER, MIREU, TARANTULA, INNOCAT, MINEA, ENGAGER, CRM-EXTREME),  makes ICAMCYL an unique partner for Environmental & Climate Action, Energy and Raw Material projects of the EU program. ICAMCYL priority areas and highlighted competences are: a) Integrated Computational Engineering and Materials Design (Computational Multiphysics Modelling); b) Mining and Materials Processing (processing and recovery of raw materials, waste management and new valorisation); c) Circular Economy, Sustainability and Resource Efficiency (Integrated computational engineering & design, Eco-innovation studies, Life-cycle assessment, Value chain design, Innovation policy, Clustering; d) Materials Under Extreme Conditions (multiscale modelling, certification tests); e) Additive Manufacturing and Components (3D printing for different applications).

ICAMCYL contributes to interdisciplinary projects quality by providing, not only expertise in new technologies and products development, but also by means of promoting new policies, governance cooperation, business models, industry commitment, stakeholders/end-users engagement, and smart regional specialization.  Funded by the main industries from Castilla y Leon (north-Spain) region, from the automotived manufacturing, advanced materials, mining and processing of raw materials sectors, and the support of the regional government, ICAMCyL constitutes a competence center with the objective of aligning and working towards the smart specialisation strategy (RIS3) of the region.
