Vanessa De Wolf, Belgium
Development of thermoplastic nanocomposites
Vanessa De Wolf
Vanessa De Wolf, industrial engineer in chemistry from I.S.I.B., specialized in material science. Her first work experience with nanoparticles was at Nanocyl for 1 year. Before her actual work at Nano4, she followed a formation in quality and production management at Bruxelles Formation. At Nano4, she is in charge of technical part in European R&D projects (IASS, INNOHU, Silenthalpic…) and in upscaling and development of products in accordance with customer’s needs, since October 2012. She has an extensive experience in research and development in materials including thermosets and thermoplastics resins, nanomaterials, specific properties (self-healing through IASS, flame retardancy, thermal and electrical conductivity, antibacterial, COV absorption…). She has experience in R&D project management.

Eduardo Cejuela, Spain
From Julius Caesar to Composite materials
Eduardo Cejuela has a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering for Universidad de Cantabria (Spain) and is performing his PhD in Coastal Engineering, investigating new possibilities of caissons technology, leveraged through the historical knowledge in this subject. He has published two papers about history of caissons construction and its new challenges and possibilities.
He has worked most of his professional career as a contractor in infrastructure projects, usually in contact with remote areas, that have marked his way of understanding engineering and ingenuity as a powerful tool to build in areas with limited access to technology. This way of understanding engineering has led him to investigate since the origin of caissons how they were built, and how could they be built today in very remote areas, by transporting it or by using technologies well known in some remote areas, as construction in fiber glass or composite materials could be.
He is now working as consultant for different engineering companies, mainly estimating costs and proposing method statements for construction of infrastructures in Africa’s remote areas.
