Stretching the boundaries of materials

Six projects of the 4TU.HTM programme 'New Horizons in Designer Materials'

The 4TU.HTM research programme New Horizons in Designer Materials (2016-2019) was set up by the 4TU.Federation, a collaboration of Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente and Wageningen University & Research.

In this book 4TU scientific director for the field of materials Prof. Jilt Sietsma (Materials Science and Engineering, Delft University of Technology) and 4TU.HTM programme manager Reina Boerrigter, and the postdocs of the six projects look back on this programme exploring New Horizons in Designer Materials.
