- Date: 2024-01-11, updated 2024-01-23
With MANTRA – data on innovative materials for sustainability and transfer – the BMBF is funding a science communication project for 3.5 years from January 2024 for networking, public relations and the development of indicators for sustainability as well as industry/practice transfer. These topics will be communicated via a website, brochures and information flyers using an interdisciplinary approach. The aim of the material hub initiative “MaterialNeutral – Materials for Process Efficiency” is to develop mission-orientated material innovations for critical social and industry-relevant issues using a holistic and cross-actor approach. Cooperation and synergy potentials between science, industry and society are to be utilised in the best possible way in terms of sustainability and resource efficiency.
The project is anchored in the Helmholtz funding programme (POF IV) in the Research Area “Information”.
The project consortium consists of the following partners: KIT (IAI, project manager Dr. Katja Nau), UFZ, TU Berlin and DECHEMA (coordinator). The total funding amount is approximately € 2.8 million with a share of approximately € 522 thousand for the KIT-IAI.
