The MATCH Observatory is a key element on the WP4 of the MATCH project. Designed as a strategic surveillance tool, it´s ultimate purpose is that MATCH partners, the European Commission and other users could be constantly aware about emerging and possibly disruptive trends in the field of materials.
The regular monitoring of several sources of information will allow identifying:
- New and innovative products reaching the market.
- New uses for materials innovations
- Market trends and forecasts in materials
- New research projects and policy support programs and initiatives
The Observatory will contribute to disseminate this knowledge to stakeholders of the materials community by RSS feeds, social networks and semiannual reports.
