Materfad is the Barcelona Materials Centre, created and driven by the FAD (Fostering Arts and Design). At Materfad we work as an observatory of the future, conducting technological research and surveillance focused on innovation, sustainability and creativity through materials.

In the Materfad database you can consult thousands of innovative, commercially available materials, processes and technologies, facilitating technological transfer between widely differing sectors.

We assist businesses in identifying opportunities or developing new proposals through innovation projects associated with the materials.
