Desired outcome

Looking for academic partners from all over the world with expertise in forming processes and emerging materials technologies to collaborate in the design and development of more efficient technologies to create structural components.


Details of the Innovation Need

The automotive industry needs new methods for forming high-strength steel and other hard materials.

To overcome the industry paradigms for forming steel, Metalsa is looking to collaborate with academic institutions with forming expertise, either for the auto-industry or for any other industry.

The objective is to collaborate in the development of processes and tools that overcome today's highly capital-intensive requirements.

Metalsa believes that academic talent could trigger innovation in a way that the industry hasn't done so, because of the "this is the way we do things around here" bias.

If you want to know more about the challenge and expertise areas of interest, please send your Non-Confidential information about your expertise and research capabilities via the online submission form to start a conversation about the potential of collaboration.
