The National Technical University (NTUA) is the oldest and most prestigious educational institution of Greece in the field of technology, and has contributed unceasingly to the country's scientific, technical and economic development since its foundation in 1836. It is closely linked with Greece's struggle for independence, democracy and social progress. In Greek, NTUA is called the "Ethnicon Metsovion Polytechnion" which stands for National Metsovion Polytechnic. It was named "Metsovion" to honor the donors and benefactors Nikolaos Stournaris, Eleni Tositsa, Michail Tositsas and Georgios Averof, all from Metsovo, a small town in the region of Epirus, who made substantial donations in the last half of the 19th century.
For many years Elastotec GmbH creates innovations in hydrostatic compression technology of elastomeres. They devellop and produce springs and cushions with a service capacity from 50 kgs up to 500 mts designed for industrial applications and construction vehicles. To date approx. 80,000 of those tensioners have been mounted to tracked vehicles because of the outstanding elastic charactersistics of high-viscosity medial. Those components designed by us are suitable for applications at assemply lines, rail-road, sea or air transport, at construction sites, the mining industries, etc. They fit at any place where mass energy has to be set in motion, diverted or decelerated. All products designed by Elastotec are used, i.a., as chain tensioners on contruction vehicles, as shock absorbers of wing cushions and hitches, vibration absorber on pile-drivers, adjustment spring for conveyor-belts, quench springs for lorries underground or on the surface, feeder springs for tooling machinery, shock absorbers for cable driven escalators, etc.
Kochanek Entwicklungsgeselschaft (KE) is a small privately held SME established in 1995.

IMDEA Materials Institute is committed to three main goals: excellence in Materials Science and Engineering research, technology transfer to industry to increase competitiveness and maintain technological leadership, and attraction of talented researchers from all over the world to Madrid to work in an international and interdisciplinary environment.
Technical University of Liberec is a university located in the city of Liberec, Czech Republic. The university has undergone great transformation in its history of almost sixty years. When it was founded it was called the Institute of Mechanical Engineering in Liberec, and its original classrooms were located in the attics of the F. X. Šalda Grammar School. These later served as an accommodation for teachers, and it was here that the first plans and ideas arose concerning the later form and direction of the college. The gates were opened to the first 259 students on October the 1st 1953.
Today, the university has 6 faculties and two specialized institutes: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Textile Engineering, Faculty of Science-Humanities and Education, Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Arts and Architecture, Faculty of Mechatronics, Informatics and Inter-Disciplinary Studies, Institute of Health Studies, Institute for Nanomaterials, Advanced Technologies and Innovation
Access is an independent research centre associated with the Technical University of Aachen (RWTH) in Germany. 50 engineers and scientists are pooling a diversity of individual skills to merge both scientific and technological know-how in materials and processes with a special focus on metallic materials and casting processes. Excellence in science demonstrated in application is the leitmotiv! High end products for turbo machinery are outstanding examples for this approach. Scientific expertise and technological skills are transferred into best practice examples.
