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.
