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

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
