Projects and Partners


Materials Challenges

These platforms for pre-competitive research tackle underlying scientific questions essential to Swiss industry. Materials Challenges are co-funded by CCMX and industry partners for five years from 2016, after which a structure will be in place for industry to continue supporting mid-term research in materials sciences and engineering.


Professor Chairs

Four tenure-track professors were co-funded by CCMX, together with EPFL and ETH Zurich, respectively, in areas of materials science that industry identified as critically important. These professors will be fully supported by their home institutions after CCMX funding has run out.
