Project Information
NamePilot environment for manufacturing and testing functional materials for industry (FunktioMat)
ContactIlpo Nuutinen
DescriptionMaterials industry is changing and in future new properties are needed for materials used in e.g. catalysis, water treatment and electrochemical applications. In the Eastern Finland there are a number of companies specialized in material production and utilisation, as well as in measurement technologies. At the moment, these companies do not have testing environment to develop new innovations. The aim of FunktioMat project is to develop such test environment based on the facilities existing at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and the Savonia University of Applied Sciences.

During the project test batches will be produced using various precursors and by-products from industry and industrial partners will apply the produced materials in their applications. The pilot-scale production and testing environment enables carrying out projects with the industrial partners, and offer them research and test services. The project promotes material efficiency and low carbon society in the manufactured functional materials.

Savonia UAS

Savonia is one of Finland's biggest and most versatile universities of applied sciences. Our campuses are situated in Kuopio, Iisalmi and Varkaus. There are almost 6000 students and 600 employees at Savonia. In education we implement Open Innovation Space (OIS), where we combine learning, development, research, and teaching.
