Collaborative Research in Shape Memory materials - Copper- and Iron- based alloys

Could research teams or individual researchers working on Copper (Cu) - or Iron (Fe) - based Shape Memory Materials get in touch with me? Nitinol, as things stand, is an expensive material. Availability of more affordable Smart or Shape Memory materials would help Structural Engineers and other engineering specialisms.
Any thoughts? Interested in collaborative work???

This is a very interesting topic. I have read a little bit about Gallium - which is like a liquid metal. I truly believe products can be made using more flexible materials such as Nitinol and Gallium. Shape memory devices at a low cost? Emphasis on low cost and green friendly. Please message me about your findings. Thank you again!

We use the notion of emergence to consider the sorts of knowledge that can be produced in a collaborative research project. The notion invites us to see collaborative work as a developmental dynamic system in which various changes constantly occur.

Researchers collaborate for a number of reasons: clarify questions, sharpen arguments, influence practice, and many others. That said, collaborations—especially those that go beyond parallel writing on a single topic—bring normative frameworks into conflict.
