Materia Nova has the task of leading specialised studies mainly on behalf of large entreprises and of encouraging the transfer of technologies between the world of basic research and the industrial world.

Materia Nova also generates value at the heart of the local economic fabric by these actions.

In order to accomplish the challenges that are asked of it, Materia Nova relies on its own capacities: an internal team of globally-recognised scientific experts. Materia Nova works in close relationship with university partners and research centres based both in Belgium and abroad. This open and collaborative approach offers Materia Nova an undeniable potential in terms of scientific and strategic resources. Testing the industrial feasibility of solutions developed for its business clients is, of course, indispensable.
