Welcome to the DIMAT Community

DiMAT aims to reshape the materials manufacturing industry via open digital tools for European SMEs in materials. To truly understand the needs of manufacturing companies and create digital solutions that resonate with their objectives we’ve created the DiMAT Community.

Here, you will have the opportunity to connect with professionals from industry and science and exchange tailored knowledge and guidance on relevant topics such as materials design, processing and manufacturing and the integration of concrete advanced technologies to simplify and elevate your “business as usual”. Members are provided with carefully selected content, focusing on what matters most.

Join discussions and stay in the loop on emerging trends, challenges, and best practices in digitalization within advanced materials manufacturing. Our monthly expert insights via articles, blog posts, and short video podcasts will keep you at the forefront of industry knowledge. 

Community members will be actively included in the process of DiMAT solution development and will be also offered early access to DiMAT Suites and specialized support for digitalization. 

As a member company, you will have the opportunity to submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) for the DiMAT Suites. Selected companies will get the chance to experience the toolkits, offering a firsthand trial, consultations from renowned experts in the field and participation in the development of these solutions according to their needs.

Last but not least, being part of F6S – the largest platform for founders worldwide, as a member of DiMAT Community you will also receive updates on suitable funding opportunities available on the F6S network.
