The Materials Innovation Institute (M2i) is the Dutch network organisation in the field of functional and structural materials. Over sixty industries and universities work together on new materials with improved properties, new production processes and in-depth knowledge of material behaviour from production to end of life.
M2i operates in a broad field of structural and functional materials such as advanced materials, hybrids and composites, thin films, coatings and nano-materials. The M2i network offers a wide range of expertise driven by the technology needs of industry.
M2i projects focus on topics such as materials production, shaping and forming, surface and interface engineering, durability, joining and durability, materials characterisation and resource efficiency.
