EIT RawMaterials project wins Interregional Science Prize

EIT RawMaterials Magnetrometry Network

Magnetometry Network (MagNet project) won the Greater Region Interregional Science Prize 2018 for its collaborative fundamental research and R&D activities

MagNet, innovation project supported by EIT RawMaterials, won the 2018 Interregional Research Prize of the Greater Region for its collaborative fundamental research and R&D activities. Let’s wish the project achieves the same success at the European scale!

Magnetometry, i.e. measurement of magnetic field and materials magnetic features, is a powerful, versatile and non-destructive way to characterize a wide range of raw and functionalised materials, as well as processes.

About Magnetometry Network

The European Magnetometry Network aims to build a European community in the field of magnetometry to favour the accessibility of magnetometry platforms to R&D researchers and promote collaborations with industrial partners in order to:

  • Intensify scientific and technical exchanges between magnetometry users
  • Chair, maintain and improve knowledge, know-how and good practices
  • Ensure a good technological watch and coordinate new technical developments
  • Favour the accessibility of magnetometry platforms to academic and R&D researcher
  • Teach and train young scientists and engineers in the field of magnetometry
  • Popularize magnetometry in the whole scientific community and the general public
  • Promote R&D collaborations with industrial partners

Currently the European MagNetometry network gathers researchers, engineers and university staffs from about 40 academic and private institutions in nine European countries, and covers a large spectrum of expertise including physics, chemistry, material sciences, geology, biology, nanotechnologies.
