Problems & Challenges

Over the last decade, the construction works are ongoing, however only in the recent years the safety of such infrastructures has gained increasing attention, particularly the issues of fire, blast and impact.

This transformation in the mentality is attributed to a series of large fires and blast incidents (e.g. terrorism attacks) that have taken place in the last years, which have been responsible for dramatic incidents, which led to human casualties, major structural damages and serious consequences for the regional economies.

The existing materials either cannot offer protection against both circumstances or their cost is unaffordable.

The BAM project addresses these challenges, targeting to the design, development and validation of two new building materials, which will offer the appropriate resistance against blast, impact and fire, according to the relevant standards, considering that currently there is no such material that can offer both services.


The project is implemented under the programme of social cohesion “THALIA 2021-2027” co-funded by the European Union, through Research and Innovation Foundation.

Το έργο υλοποιείται στο πλαίσιο του Προγράμματος Πολιτικής Συνοχής «θΑλΕΙΑ 2021-2027» με τη συγχρηματοδότηση της ΕΕ, μέσω του Ιδρύματος Έρευνας και Καινοτομίας.
