Report EUREKA E!-SURF meeting @ Basel, 20.11.2014

Dear ESURF partners,

We had a fruitful meeting in Basel.

The status of our Umbrella was presented, and the management of E!-SURF has been formally transferred to Germany.

Uwe Koenig/EIFFO presented his plans for 2015 and beyond. To that end, EUREKA presents different chances for firm collaboration with the ProFactory+ Umbrella, as well as with the new Metallurgy Europe Cluster initiative. Moreover, it will be attempted to co-finance our work through H2020.

Matchmaking and meeting opportunities in 2015 have been discussed, and last but not least the meeting participants presented their activities and project ideas:
- IREIS_ManuTech
- UMinho
- InnovativeSurfaces and profile

The meeting report as well as the presentations of EIFFO organisation, the E!-Surf Strategy/actions 2015 & beyond and Eureka Cluster Metallurgy Europe can be found on this page. Please click the link to view the presentations.

Many thanks to the Swiss hosts for organizing the attractive and convenient meeting arrangements!
