The main objective of the Interreg Project intermatGR consists of pooling competences in the field of Materials Engineering in the Greater Region as well as to initiate the exchange of knowledge and the transfer of technology between research institutions and enterprises beyond national frontiers.

This ambitious project is challenged by several actors from the Greater Region. Next to the Saarland University as lead beneficiary, other academic institutions such as the University of Luxembourg, the University of Liège and the University of Lorraine are involved. Further important partners of the project are clusters in the fields of materials and processes, which provide the link to the economy. The Luxembourg Materials Cluster, Pôle Mecatech ASBL and MATERALIA also partake with enormous commitment. Furthermore, the Association of the Metal and Electronics Industry of the Saarland e.V. (ME Saar) is a strategic partner of the consortium.
