You may already be a member of a materials or industry association and be asking yourself why this materials community is any different to that. We know that there are lots of great associations out there but we also know that they are often geared to one material, discipline or industry. The MaterialsMatrix is different in that it brings together all of those areas – it’s a one-stop-shop, if you like!
A ‘shop’ might give rise to the idea that there’s a financial reason to why we started this. We can assure you that there isn’t. The site is completely free to join and to use. The only cost to you is your time and the sharing of your knowledge. And we believe that you’ll get a lot more out of it, than you put in – just as you do on other online platforms you might use.
Talking of which, we’re often asked why the MaterialsMatrix is different from LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a great tool but it’s an all-encompassing one, with many people discussing many subjects. On the MaterialsMatrix we’re all there to talk about materials and anything to do with materials.
And finally, another question that is often put to us is: what’s in it for Lucideon? Our answer is simple: it’s the same thing that’s in it for you – the chance to collaborate, network, learn, support, discuss and challenge!
