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
Thanks to the Datemats experience, consortium partner Materially has amplified its expertise on biobased materials and examined its methodology in transferring knowledge from the research community to the industrial ecosystem. The H2020 project CENTRINNO is amplifying this knowledge transfer by expanding to the civil society with the aim to trigger a new industrial revolution that puts citizens at the core of sustainable transformation. In this context, the EU-funded
It’s official: the Datemats project is over. The consortium is now in the final reporting phase summarising the great results achieved in more than three years of collaboration. The project outcomes and activities are all documented on the Datemats website, in particular, you can find: on the “Home” page, a short overview of the Datemats initiative summarising what, why, how and who. on the “About” page, the details
How do you keep up with the latest developments on future materials? A two-day event to wrap up the Datemats experience.
On 7 and 8 April 2022 the Datemats consortium organised a successful final conference with great interest from all participants, belonging to both, the design-research community and the industrial ecosystem. Emerging materials and technologies represent a crucial factor in identifying innovative solutions, obtaining better product performances, and enhancing the product language in terms of new experiences and original expressive-sensorial dimensions. Materials’ performance, sustainability, and aesthetics are at the core of
How to teach emerging materials and technologies in higher education? Join the Datemats teaching experts online on Tuesday 22 March 2022.
Datemats project aims to transfer and implement a design-led teaching method for students with a mixed background (design and engineering) in the field of Emerging Materials and Technologies (EM&Ts), and to boost knowledge and technology transfers from academia and research centres to industry. The project has been running since 2019, and now it is time to share some results with the academic audience. What: The teaching experts of project
January 24 – 28, 2022 After the kick-off at TECNUN in June, the second design challenge held at PoliMi in July and the third round after the summer break at KEA, the last of these series of interdisciplinary EM&Ts challenges will take place in Finland on January 24 – 28, 2022 at Aalto University. The interdisciplinary EM&Ts challenge involves some students of the Universities part of the Datemats mobility
Interdisciplinary Challenge N°1 at Tecnun Datemats project organizes an international mobility program including four international workshops. An international learning experience involving students and teaching staff from the universities of the Datemats consortium: Aalto University, Copenhagen School of Design and Technology, Politecnico di Milano, Tecnun Universidad de Navarra. During the five day long workshops, students will tackle real-life challenges given by partnering European companies. Each workshop has the main
Student at Aalto, KEA, PoliMi or Tecnun? Apply for the Datemats Mobility activity and discover application potentials of EM&Ts
In 2021 the Datemats Erasmus+ mobility will take place: hopefully the european COVID-19 situation will allow the consortium partners to execute the activities as planned and invite students enrolled at the involved Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to participate in an international mobility program offering 4 international workshops. During the five day long workshops, students tackle real-life challenges given by partnering European companies. Each workshop has the main focus on
The Datemats partners main objective is to transfer knowledge on Emerging Materials & Technologies - short EM&Ts - from academia and research to the industry and the future workforce. To do so, being in direct touch with industrial players, material producers and end-users, is crucial for the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) of the Datemats consortium. To create this important connection, the Datemats Manifesto has been launched with the aim
Initially, the event was planned to be held as a two day meet up in Milan (Italy) at PoliMi premises. In April, when the dates for this meeting were set, partners were hopeful that the global COVID-19 situation would change during the summer months allowing to get back to physical encounters. As well known, the scenario has not significantly changed since spring forcing consortium partners to stick to the
