Elisava Alumni celebrates its sixth Professional Day, which will take place on Wednesday 30th April at the headquarters of Materfad and which is entitled «Case Studies».
Materfad is one of the reference material centres that develops a task which is unknown for many people. The session will consist in a visit to its installations, where the secrets of this institution referent in research and technological surveillance in the field of new materials will be discovered.
Masterfad offers consulting services and training to companies, professionals, universities and technological centres, in addition of facilitating the technological transference between sectors of different areas. Its task of technological surveillance allows the detection of materials and technologies of a special sector with potentiality for being applied in another one. This marked transversal character turns it into a catalyst for innovation between universities, technological centres, companies, designers, industrials, engineers and architects.
Beyond the institutional explanation, the lecture will be focused in the experience of the projects assessed at Materfad by Javier Peña. The difficulties that emerge when projecting and carrying out a product in different consultancies will be explained from different points of views.
All the hidden aspects of development that can stop the projects will be analyzed. At last, a reference case will be explained from the protagonists’ experience: manufacturer, consultant and designer.
