WHAT IS INNOMATNET?

InnoMatNet is a 30 month project launched in April 2012, funded under the NMP (Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies) theme of the European Union 7th Framework Programme.

InnoMatNet aims to advance the goal of an innovation society by developing a flexible approach that establishes teams of innovators which link materials labs with industry (particularly the creative industry), as well as other innovation actors, providing support to help them bring new products and processes to market.

PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF MANUFACTURING WITH INNOVATIVE DESIGN AND MATERIALS
11th April 2013, Hannover (Germany)
In the framework of the Hannover Messe 2013


Manufacturing has undergone numerous changes that have been enabled by new technologies, different materials, and/or innovative product design. Building upon this relationship, the third event of the InnoMatNet project will provide a forum to connect and inform people, to depict new trends, and to take a different view on manufacturing processes. This workshop will include a series of short presentations by experts from academia and industry, and the dissemination of existing tools to promote the innovation process.

The programme is available and you can download it here.

Participation is free of charge, but registration is required! You can register here.
