MATERIALS INNOVATION FUNDING
FROM BASIC RESEARCH TO MARKET
Time to market for new and innovative materials can be anywhere up to 15 years. That is a very long time to bridge and financially risky for one single company or a company solely financed privately.
SIM wants to bridge the gap between basic and applied materials research towards industrial development and market by R&D funding that is demand driven and in need of additional scientific understanding. Our mission: strengthen the Flemish materials industry with technology platforms via combined industrial and academic consortia.
