Project duration: 1 April 2017 – 31 March 2020


The Magnetometry Network (MagNet) aims to bring together complementary European technical platforms and competence centers in the field of magnetism. At the first stage, the partners of this NoI will be located in France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Germany, Poland, and Netherland. However, technically, the service can be provided to any customer in Europe since samples can travel by mail (or made in one academic MagNet partner’s lab) and video-conference can be used for R&D discussions.

The solution (technology)

Globally, the project will be divided into four main phases:
– A short one consisting of developing shared procedures to allow the consortium replying to customers requests and/or customers needs identified (proactive approach), including related IP issues.
– A marketing phase which will consist in increasing the number of customers, selling services based on the equipment and associated expertise identified within the consortium
– Realization of first service and R&D actions for new private partners
– R&D proposals to answer EIT RawMaterials up-scaling calls or other European calls will be initiated in order to form long-term R&D collaboration with new customers and bring MagNet closer to sustainability.
