Welcome to the HYCOAT website

HYCOAT is a project funded by the European Union in the framework of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions – Innovative Training Networks. It is the first European Training Network at the intersection of chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering dealing with the synthesis and applications of hybrid coatings grown by Molecular Layer Deposition (MLD).

HYCOAT aims to provide an interdisciplinary and multi-environment (Universities, Research Centers, SMEs & Large industries) training platform and offers 15 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher/PhD positions.

A coordinated effort of 10 beneficiaries and 16 partner organizations from 7 European countries (Belgium, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway and Spain), HYCOAT targets the development of novel precursor chemistries, processes, characterisation and modelling of MLD and the demonstration of hybrid coatings in four key high impact fields of application relevant for European industries, in packaging, biomedical, electronics and batteries.
