Manufacturing and Materials

New materials are characterised by unique and exceptional properties. They are manufactured using, in particular, nanotechnologies and synthetic biology. More hard-wearing, lighter, more conductive; changing form, colour, and properties, according to a specific stimulus, these materials open the door to new products and more innovative applications.
