Innovative Smart Materials Networking Conference
Thank you for a successful Innovative Smart Materials Networking Conference!
The high-profile one-day conference at Starling Hotel at EPFL in Lausanne, on October 2, gathered 97 participants from over 67 Swiss & Swedish organizations.
- 150 one-to-one meetings took place during the afternoon of the conference!
- 24 SMEs & start-ups
- 15 MNEs such as Atlas Copco, Sandvik Coromant and Materials Technology respecively, Saab, Oerlicon Metco, RUAG Aerostructures, Hublot, Huntsman Advanced Materials, Mathys & SICPA
- 15 academia & research institute organizations such as ZHAW, EPFL, CSEM, CCMX, EMPA, Chalmers & KTH
Prioritized thematic areas
i. Materials for Health Care Applications. Eg. 3D printing, plastic & polymer, functional coatings, implants
ii. Hard and Soft Coatings. Eg. functional surfaces, tribology low friction, corrosion resistant, conductivity thermal, new heat and surfaces treatment methods.
iii. Materials for Light Weight Structures & Engineered Materials. Eg light alloys, composites, bio based materials (wood, pulp based composites, hybrid structures, methods for joining)
iv. New Metallic Materials. Eg. powder metallurgy, ultra high strength steel, boron steel, materials modeling (modeling for materials properties and processing)
The conference also saw the opening of a second EUREKA/Eurostars call for project outlines to finance joint projects. For additional information please see the following link to the Open Call.
