Introduction to this manifesto form
The following form is conceived within the framework of the Datemats project, which is formally known as Knowledge & Technology Transfer of Emerging Materials & Technologies through a Design-Driven Approach (hereinafter referred to as Datemats), a three years project (2018-2021) co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

It is an initiative that aims to create a transnational network among universities, research centres and companies in order to develop and implement interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary methods for Emerging Materials and Technologies (EM&Ts) education. While six different European countries are represented, -Denmark, Finland, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Sweden- the project currently involves ten partners representing different organizations such as high education institutions, research centres, and design and innovation promotion centres, i.e. Politecnico di Milano, Aalto University, Barcelona Design Center, Centro Italiano per l’Apprendimento Permanente, Copenhagen School of Design and Technology, Industrial Development Center West Sweden, Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade, Materially Srl Impresa Sociale, Materfad the Barcelona's Materials Centre from FAD (Fostering Arts and Design) and TECNUN University of Navarra.

The main objectives of this project are to develop and implement a unique design teaching and learning method for design and engineering students in the field of Emerging Materials and Technologies, and to boost knowledge and transfers of innovative materials and technologies with a design driven approach from academia to companies and businesses.

With that in mind, the project involves a series of activities and publications addressed to companies and professionals, such as exhibitions and events, knowledge transfer days, a final international conference, training guidelines in the field of EM&Ts, development of a training methodology and framework, training workshops addressed to managers/companies, and entrepreneurship workshops addressed to start-ups related to EM&Ts. An integrated and systematic execution of the activities will allow to create new professional competences and entrepreneurial skills in young students, develop new guidelines and approach to technology, and transfer knowledge from academia to industries.

Consequently, the manifesto developed hereto focuses on involving companies and professionals to the above-referred transnational network. The objective thereby is to share approach, knowledge and needs with universities, research centres and other companies for further collaborations and to keep alive the connection after the end of the project.
