A supporting tool to design with and for EM&Ts: the materials toolkit

The EM&Ts toolkit is a collection of tangible samples displaying emerging materials and technologies and containing five samples for each EM&Ts. Aim of the EM&Ts transfer toolkit is to provide a tool to facilitate the understanding and application potentials of emerging materials and technologies.   Every material example has its box, containing: 1) Physical sample, 2) Datasheet suddivided in this structure: an Understanding section: it provides basic knowledge
