The development and application of new materials and technologies over the years has played a significant role in the development of mankind. A considerable number of these innovations are developed in universities and associated institutions. That is why there is an enormous push in research and education worldwide to, on the one hand, increase competitiveness, and on the other hand, address global challenges, such as climate and environmental protection. Some of today's key areas are lightweight materials, intelligent materials, biomaterials, and composites.
More and more, industries are turning to universities to conduct research, so they can make better use of their relatively expensive infrastructures and close the gap between practice and theory. However, universities must strike a delicate balance between serving independent basic research purposes and providing paid services. This is particularly important for young scientists and engineers who need to obtain comprehensive basic knowledge in a neutral environment.
