A design-driven approach for knowledge transfer of emerging materials and technologies

Datemats is a European project funded by the Erasmus+ programme, within the key actions related to transnational and result-driven activities between higher education institutions and businesses, to generate innovation in teaching and learning and co-creation of knowledge.

The project aims to create a unique design teaching and learning method in the field of emerging materials and technologies and to boost knowledge transfer from academia to companies in a designerly way.

Datemats intends to co-creates many outputs: teaching methods and training guidelines, methodology and framework, training workshops addressed to managers and companies, entrepreneurship workshops addressed to start-up related to emerging materials and technologies.

Students and companies are called upon to be part of a unique exploratory and experimental path

 

The initiative focuses on four emerging materials and technologies areas (wearable technologies & smart connected; advanced growing & self-healing; carbon-based & nanotech; bio-based & wood-based). Design and engineering students of the universities involved in the project and interested in one of these areas, and companies (producers, manufacturers, end-users, startups etc.) that operate in these fields can be involved in several activities aimed to transfer new knowledge and methodologies to learn to detect and exploit the potentials of emerging materials and technologies gaining new skills, methods, expertise, competitiveness.

Teaching methods and training materials for Emerging Materials and Technologies (EMTs) are going to be piloted within and used after the project in design-, engineering- and interdisciplinary courses. These ad hoc developed Open Educational Resources (OERs) will be published under the Creative Commons license, in order to guarantee full access to all the related target groups after the project end. The project outcomes will be collected in the Datemats e-Book that represents the project legacy and will be a high-level publication validated through a consolidated peer-review process.

A european network of excellence on the topic of emerging materials and technologies join the effort to push education and industry further

 

Datemats initiative creates a transnational network involving ten partners representing different kind of organisations (universities, research centres, educational, design and innovation promotion centres) from six different European countries: Denmark, Italy, Finland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden.

A multidisciplinary network to investigate knowledge transfer, through an interdisciplinary approach and led by design, from a cross-industry perspective.
