M2i Community: connect with the network in materials innovation
The “Materials ecosystem”: we call it this because it involves all players in industry and academia, organizations and individuals, in fact the whole network which enables materials innovation. Driven specialists, researchers, managers and entrepreneurs – at established institutes, academia, large industries and smart start-ups. M2i connects with the players in the Materials eco-system to enable materials innovation in The Netherlands and internationally. Our personal approach has been well known for years. Now we are adding M2i Community: an online platform. We will start small, letting it grow and develop, and invite all players in materials innovation to build the M2i Community with us so that the entire Community benefits. We invite you to let us know what you want to reach with materials research and innovation, and how M2i can contribute to this in your view. Feel welcome to contact us.
In the M2i Community you will find news updates from our wide partner network. In upcoming editions you will also find the program of the M2i Conference 2015.
We invite companies to raise materials engineering challenges. M2i can play a key role in solving problems, developing new understanding about materials behavior, enabling new applications and creating breakthrough innovations in materials. We can support you with research projects, engineering projects and valorization opportunities.
We look forward to receiving your challenge
At March 2nd, M2i Human Capital will be present at the Career Fair at Twente University. Over 140 companies, technical engineers, recruiters, university-alumni and students will meet at the campus event.
R&D-intensive industries in the Netherlands are facing a shortage. There just aren’t enough highly-educated technology workers to go around. We’re all in the same boat and competing for talented people. Is this “battle for talent” contributing to our future plans? Or should businesses pull together more?
