Million € total volume
scientific publications
Project duration 6 years, 2007-2013

Goals for the Tekes Functional Materials project were:

  • Application-driven R&D of advanced materials for new business areas
  • Sustainable additive manufacturing technologies with material, energy and cost efficiency
  • Bringing research results towards commercialization
  • Activating SMEs to develop their technologies and global business

How we reached the goals

Spinverse supported the activation of partnering, facilitation of international cooperation, vision & strategy work and focusing of the program and boosting professional communication and media visibility.

The program formed a platform for growth in new competence areas in e.g. printed intelligence, biomedical applications, solar energy and energy storage.
