The Materials and Design Exchange (MaDE) encourages awareness, exchange of knowledge and collaboration between designers and materials scientists across other Materials Community groups within the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). These represent the full range of materials and manufacturing processes, old and new. We also connect design with industry and technology via other KTN communities and as a contributor to the European Commission's InnoMatNet project.
