The Laboratory of Materials (LoM) is part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Thessaly and is located in the area of Volos in Central Greece. The laboratory was established in 1995 and operates with research and educational activities specializing in metallic alloy research.


LoM has emerged in its area of expertise as a strong research point by collaborating with several Greek and European industries ranging from materials developers to materials users.
LoM expertise is in the field of materials process simulation by applying the techniques of computational alloy thermodynamics and kinetics. LoM is also active in alloy development, materials characterization, laser materials processing, corrosion and failure analysis issues.
LoM performs research projects for industry and the EU. Extensive experience has been accumulated in LoM’s stuff through their involvement in more than thirty EU and national research projects and more than a hundred problem-solving industrial contracts.
LoM has a strong application oriented approach. Input and questions from industry are essential to guide the research which is directed to the solution of practical problems.

Numbers (during the first 20 years of operation)


  • 200 projects with industry
  • 35 EU and national research projects
  • 60 diploma thesesCooperations
  • 7 doctoral theses
  • 150+ publications in refereed journals and international conferences
