Creating the Future

Origin of the Foundation

The Foundation for Research, Development and Application of Composite Materials (FIDAMC) was created as a result of an agreement between the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade, the Community of Madrid and the company EADS NV signed on March 15, 2006. The start-up of this Research Center, which is located in the Parque Tecnológico del Sur, in the municipality of Getafe, involved an investment of 26 million euros in high-tech facilities and equipment in the 2006/08 period and occupies a surface area of approximately 20,000 square meters.

The decision responds to the importance that successive governments have given to the aerospace industry sector, given its strategic nature and the need to continue research in the development of composite materials and other new technologies associated with them in order to maintain the important leadership that the Spanish aerospace industry holds in the world.

Years Established

Completed Projects

We’ve Been Building For Over 10 Years

Years of experience in the aeronautical sector allow us to transfer the vast knowledge acquired in this sector to other industrial sectors where weight and environmental protection are the priority objectives to be achieved.

Lab

FIDAMC has a laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment to carry out the study, analysis and characterization of polymers and composite materials. The laboratory activities are oriented to projects in different industrial fields, such as the aeronautical, wind, naval and railway sectors, and on the other hand, framed within national and international research projects.
