Abstract

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is an impartial multidisciplinary expert organisation under the auspices of the Ministry of Trade and Industry. Its objectives are to develop new technologies, create new innovations and offer value added services, thus increasing our clients’ competitiveness and competencies. With its know-how, VTT produces research, development, testing and information services to the public sector and companies as well as international organisations.
Material research has a very strong role in the technical research at VTT. The volume is estimated to be about 300 man years per annum which is over 10% of the total research activities at VTT. The volume of the research on year 2005 was about 32 M€. These research activities are mainly applied research carried out in projects involving the major industrial companies in the field, and networking with the leading research organizations both nationally and internationally. Materials research has been seen as a strategic effort in all industrial countries. It has an enormous role in aiding the economic and technological competitiveness. Material technology is generic and cross sectional in nature and the main innovations are expected when different fields of natural and technical sciences are combined with material expertise.
This VTT material symposium proceedings summary contains 30 reviewed articles from the research projects carried out by the VTT material experts in the fields of 1) functional material systems and components, 2) functional surfaces and coating applications, 3) structures and concepts based on nanomaterials and 4) novel trends in biomaterials research.
