Quantify Project

QUANTIFY is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) Action funded to promote short-term exchanges of personnel between academic organisations throughout the world.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement Nº 777896.

The Quantify Project

The objective of QUANTIFY is to form an international network of 8 organisations, working on a joint research programme in the field of Solid Mechanics.

The 8 organisations (4 European beneficiaries and 4 US partner organisations) aim at exchanging and sharing skills and knowledge with the view to understand and model the effect of anisotropy in the dynamic mechanical failure of lightweight metallic materials used in the transportation and civilian-security industries.

Breakthroughs in this field will allow lightweight metals fabricated with microstructure optimization techniques and additive manufacturing to replace steel and heavy alloys in manufacturing high structural responsibility components for automobiles, ships, aircrafts and civil infrastructures, all sectors of crucial importance for the European economy and society.

The Challenges

The challenges identified in the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation must be addressed by strategic investments in transportation and security technologies.

Smart, green and integrated transport.

International Network

The international network consists of 8 organizations: 4 European beneficiaries and 4 US partner.

With QUANTIFY, the 8 organisations will further strengthen their knowledge base, and (further) develop lasting collaborations.

Quantify: International Network



The staff members who participate in the project will be exposed to new research environments and develop new skills, thus contributing to their increased employability and supporting research in Europe.
