Understanding emerging materials and technologies: the Datemats EM&T toolkit version 1

2020-12-03T12:04:18+00:00September 28th, 2020|Project News|

The main aim of the Datemats project is to develop new methods to transfer knowledge about Emerging Materials and Technologies (EM&Ts). Part of the elaborated methodology is the creation of a toolkit presenting several materials as case study to explain the four areas addressed in the project - advanced growing, experimental wood-based, Interactive-Connected-Smart (ICS) and nanomaterials. The toolkit is a collection of 20 material samples illustrating their physical properties,

The Chemarts Cookbook: understanding wood-based materials and how they can be transformed and applied

2020-06-19T11:14:25+00:00June 18th, 2020|Partner News|

How can we make flexible and transparent wood-based materials? What kinds of materials can we derive from trees, while still respecting the preciousness of nature? Could the innovative use of renewable cellulosic materials change our material world? The CHEMARTS Cookbook gives both simple and more advanced ideas and recipes for hands-on experiments with wood-based materials. The book showcases the most interesting explorations focusing on raw materials that are processed

Knowledge transfer workshop: Datemats partners dive into the 4 EM&Ts areas

2019-12-17T14:04:01+00:00December 17th, 2019|Project News|

It is understood that interdisciplinary collaboration and EM&Ts (Emerging Materials and Technologies) know-how in the design phase are essential elements in the way towards a circular economy. Several research projects have been initiated around these EM&Ts; however, we need to educate future professionals for this field, and to involve enterprises (corporations and SMEs) to develop ideas towards commercial products and new business opportunities. Datemats project deals with the wide
