Four themes of research have been defined for for the next 3 years, starting January 2012:
- Insulating refractories and their application sin multilayer lining designs
- Energy efficient refractories: a holistic approach based on fundamentals, processing and evaluation
- Liquid phase and vapor phase corrosion: new methodologies and new cases of corrosion
- Dense refractories with enhanced flexibility
