How to manage vital materials information for collaborative projects

Are you involved in, or are you planning, a multi-partner collaborative project relevant to materials engineering or materials science? Examples would include European Union or National Science Foundation-funded research and innovation projects on topics such as additive manufacturing, composites, metallurgy, materials supply, or hazardous materials. Join our webinar on Tuesday, September 15 to find out how Granta can help you to successfully capture, share and manage vital materials data in collaborative projects with our ready-to-use, proven software.

Register for this no-cost webinar to:

  • Learn why materials data can be a vital component of project IP for collaborative projects and how effective data management can help to meet the requirements of funding bodies
  • See a demonstration of GRANTA MI, the software system used to achieve this materials data management, illustrated with case studies
  • Learn how Granta’s experience in helping collaborative projects such as AMAZE (additive manufacturing) and HITEA (Chromium 6+ replacement) could work for you in practice
  • Get an introduction to the new GRANTA MI:Collaborate™ Package, which provides a cost-effective, easy approach to managing research data, supported by proven tools for collaborative projects.

Sharing materials and process data across a collaborative project

MI:Collaborate™ is an easily accessible package for managing materials and process data
within multi-partner collaborative R&D projects


Further information

Collaborative R&D programs can generate high volumes of complex data, often stored in many different formats (machine log files, electronic documents, hard copy, etc) that end up distributed across partner organizations or individual research projects. Project data is rarely aggregated or collated, so opportunities to capitalize on the collective value of the data are missed and work is duplicated. Funding from public bodies is competitive and they are increasingly mandating plans and infrastructure to retain data and knowledge (e.g. the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Open Data Pilot) for the duration of the project and beyond. Projects need to demonstrate they have the necessary tools to meet these requirements. GRANTA MI:Collaborate™ can help.

Granta has extensive experience in industry and government-funded collaborative projects in a wide range of subject areas. GRANTA MI:Collaborate™ has a robust, cost-effective, easy-to-implement approach to managing research data, with industry-proven templates and services that will help you to hit the ground running. It is an easily accessible package for managing data within multi-partner collaborative R&D projects, it can help you to get greater value from your project data and demonstrate value retention for funding agencies. Together with a cost-effective pricing scheme, it is easy to incorporate MI:Collaborate into project proposals.

Who should join the web seminar?

This session will be of particular interest to:

  • Researchers, engineers and managers involved in specifying or managing collaborative projects, particularly those that attract funding from national governments or the European Union.
