UPCOMING PROGRAMS AND EVENTS
WHAT WE DO
We are the Innovation Network for Advanced Materials
We provide startups with innovative technologies in Advanced Materials and Deep Tech with curated support at each stage of their growth. For the earliest stage startups/research spinoffs, INAM runs the AdMaLab incubation program. For startups gearing up to raise their Seed Rounds, we organise the AdMaCom, a 3-week accelerator program designed to set them up for success. Since 2022, we also run a secondary edition, AdMaCom Scale, curated for startups that are ready to scale up.
Throughout the year we run Open Innovation Challenges with corporate members, such as Infineon and Continental, complementing R&D at strategic times during the innovation process. If you too are passionate about innovation in the field of Advanced Materials, stay up-to-date with us by subscribing to our newsletter below or following us on LinkedIn!
