Creating a strong, sustainable and inclusive network for European materials players

MATCH aims to create a network for European materials player from industry and academia, allowing them to gain real value for their own interest and expectations as far as Materials R&D&I is concerned. MATCH project was initiated to strengthen and deepen the Alliance4Materials strategy with a further increased stakeholder network.

How we reached the goals

The project aimed to enlarge and improve effectiveness within the existing Materials network at EU level. Regional and European needs in the field of Materials R&D&I require promotion and integration; a cross cutting element in the field of Materials R&D&I is needed to boost European growth. The network wanted to connect multidisciplinary Materials to a large number of fields relevant for European growth, integrate with existing and promote new Materials networks at National and Inter/Regional levels and integrate EU, National and Regional networks into sustainable (long-lasting) and effectively aligned network hubs

Spinverse was a work package leader on communications and events section and also participated in a work package related to the identification of success stories and analysis of the best practices.

Key takeaways

As a result of the MATCH project any organisation interested in materials research in Europe will have a single reference network through which to obtain information, contacts and guidance in an efficient and transparent way. Established and well-connected material research stakeholders will be able to intensify their activities and extend their collaborative activities at European level, realising the A4M concept for the ”The Materials Common House”. The project started in January 2015 and continued for 30 months until June 2017 with a total budget of 2 M€. The project is coordinated by Italian Centro Sviluppo Materiali and the whole consortium consists of 19 partners from nine countries representing the six related European Technology Platforms and several major European material research organisations.
