How will you contribute?

Join our dynamic team with this exciting job opportunity focused on the development of the process modelling of an innovative approach for producing thick wound structure made of (recyclable) reactive thermoplastic resin targeting sustainable H2 tank storage applications.

The project INSHO aims at increasing the use of thermoplastic composite, recyclable and more appropriate for harsh environment and higher production rate, by keeping the honeycomb-based sandwich composite design. To that purpose, LIST and Euro-Composites will develop a manufacturing process based on ATP enabling to produce in one step, call in-situ consolidation, the sandwich composite panel.

The project will start at TRL3 and will target a TRL5 at the end f the project, by the production of a full sandwich composite fuselage panel

INSHO Project, taking advantage of the mutual expertise of Euro-Composites and LIST, will provide and demonstrate a technological solution, based on qualified materials, though an innovation manufacturing approach resolving the technological and scientifically issue of TPC/Honeycomb manufacturing.


This position provides a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of transformative advancements in structural composite manufacturing technology.

Your activities will include:

  • Overseeing the development of in-situ consolidation of TPC (Carbon reinforced unidirectional tape made of LM-PAEK, PEEK or PEKK polymer)
  • Contributing to the Design of Experiment and advanced characterization data analysis of in-situ consolidated laminate and honeycomb sandwich panel.
  • Operate the AFP equipment with the support the design team and the R&D engineers and technicians
  • Strong interaction with modelling experts to provide suitable experimental input for consolidation modelling, including void dynamics.
  • Contribute to the scientific understanding of underlying physical phenomenon responsible for TPC deconsolidation and reconsolidation, mainly related to in-process moisture control.
  • Contribute to the integration and optimisation of the surface preparation enabling the in-situ adhesion with the honeycomb core.
  • Internal and external reporting
