The Center Smart Materials CeSMa aims to promote the use of smart electromechanical materials and to tap their enormous economic potential by

  • developing new smart materials with enhanced performance of mechanical functions
  • enabling new applicatons for smart materials through innovative design concepts, proven by demonstrators
  • introducing new smart-material based technologies to industry in joined transfer projetcs

The Center Smart Materials (CeSMa) is located at the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC in Würzburg, Germany and receives funding from the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology.
