Designers can speed up materials development with design tools and methods, bringing their holistic and user-focused way of working into research projects.
Exploring bio-based materials and what they have to offer is important to find materials solutions that not only replace conventional materials but more importantly find new functionalities that cannot be reached with conventional materials.
There are two main reasons to replace general purpose plastics: to reduce plastic waste and the use of fossil raw materials. Cellulose offers an interesting alternative.
Molecular modelling offers atomic-level insights that can be combined with the experimental findings.
Research exchange is an opportunity to change lives for the better, to turn a new page in one’s career.
