Materials & Process Technology

The challenges in materials and process technology are numerous. Examples are the quest to develop new (nano) materials which combine unusual properties or can cope with extreme conditions, the replacement of current feedstock by biobased alternatives, finding substitutes for critical raw materials, and exploring alternative mining reserves, e.g. minerals from the deep sea. Furthermore, various additive manufacturing techniques, advanced automation and digitisation (Industry 4.0) are making their way in the manufacturing industry.

Uniresearch consultants hold M.Sc.’s and Ph.D.’s in chemistry, physics, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and material science, and have profound knowledge of the opportunities and challenges in these fields. They are keen to support you in project set-up and – management in each development stage; from early stage research projects to demonstration projects, and to assist you to acquire (EU) funding.
