Our mission is to link the needs of industry with academic research through training, events and other networking opportunities for everyone involved in materials science in Switzerland.
In 2006, CCMX was given a ten-year mandate to link the research capacities of Switzerland’s academic institutions and to build strong industrial partnerships. With -- according to the current tally -- about 76 companies, three federal entities and one foreign government-funded institute involved in CCMX projects since then, offshoot projects amounting to more than CHF33 million, about 68 PhD theses and some 549 reviewed ISI publications, we can say that this mission has been fulfilled.
CCMX is nonetheless carrying on. We’ve secured our legacy beyond ETH Board funding with the support of four new professors and five Materials Challenges initiatives in a range of Materials Science domains and we’re continuing to invest in future generations of materials science engineers by organizing numerous courses and events. Please join us in sustaining the vibrant Materials Science network with your active participation in the years to come
