Free access for all the Masters’ students to the Library of the largest research and consulting center for innovative materials
Thanks to the new partnership between POLI.design and Material ConneXion Italia, all students enrolled in the University Master’s Degrees will have the opportunity to get free access to the on-line Database and to the physical Library of the largest international consultancy center for innovative and sustainable materials. Benefits also for POLI.design Higher Education Courses’ students, that will profit from a discounted price for an annual subscription to Material Connexion Italia.
Students will have the chance to access a file with more than 7,000 materials and processes divided into eight categories: Polymers - Ceramics - Glass - Metal - Cement - Natural and Derivatives - Materials based on carbon - Production processes.
The Database contains information on each material and production process expressed in text description, main technical characteristics, original photo images, trade names, company names and contacts.
It is also very interesting the opportunity to employ a physical library of over 4.000 materials, about 2.500 of which permanently exhibited at the Milan offices of Material ConneXion Italia, located in Viale Sarca 336/F. The Library consists of an archive of materials and innovative and sustainable production processes, characterized by a display system constituted by tabulae. Each tabula features a physical sample of the material or process, a text description and a MC identification code, with which it is possible to trace the complete information about the product within the online database.
