Venture Competence centre

Purpose and goal

To be the strongest possible competence center for functional surfaces, which includes leading edge research and excellent education while collaborating internationally.

Expected results and effects

FunMat-II is a materials science center at the research front for tomorrows functional surfaces that stimulates the innovation process in key sectors of Swedish industry. We drive this field forward and at the same time educate engineers and researchers in materials science.

Planned approach and implementation

FunMat-II will consolidate and expand the core research and development capabilities of the partners, and protect and enlarge their intellectual property base. An open framework called Basic Competence Platform where application (cutting tools, fuel cells, and batteries) inspired projects aimed to enlarge the knowledge base are run.These projects encompass experiments and theory and all partners contribute actively. In addition, efforts will be put on strengthen the recruitment of engineering students at the universities.
