M2i is the enabler in materials innovation

Materials form the basis of our environment. Since the dawn of humankind, new uses of materials have driven societal development. Materials innovation is important in fostering technological growth that promotes the wellbeing of society, and also in being able to meet the challenges of enhancing and protecting our environment.

Our services

As a network organization, we have excellent insight in materials-related activities in The Netherlands and Europe. We collect research questions from industries and connect them to the research partners with the right expertise.

By sourcing the optimal type of Dutch or European funding we help to reduce industrial investment costs. A significant portion of our projects are organized in cooperation with NWO and industry.

M2i manages the portfolios of projects, ensuring timely reporting and progress meetings and offering researchers a platform for sharing their activities in cluster meetings and conferences.
