A joint proposal by EuMaT ETP, E-MRS and FEMS
Feb. 2015

In what follows a number of research topics are proposed for a possible inclusion in the work programme NMP-B 2016-17 of Horizon 2020.

These topics have been worked out in a cooperative manner by the three Organizations and represent some selected research priorities as suggested by the stakeholders from the academia and industry.

The topics are arranged in several thematic groups such as Modelling and Multiscale, Energy Materials, Nanomaterials and Nanoassembled Materials, Knowledge-based Structural and Multifunctional Materials, Life-cycle, Impacts and Risks, Materials for ICT and Biomaterials.

Further improvement could be easily implemented on those topics considered of immediate interest by the Commission. The proposers are open to any further work on the call text(s) preparation, if requested by the Commission, and offer the support of the corresponding working groups for a final tuning and/or discussion on the proposed topics.

MatVal Project - new partnership and networking initiative
News Photo A new partnership and networking initiative for materials research and innovation is taking shape this week, as the MatVal Project is being launched on 7-8 February in Rome
The launch event, which gathers high-level policymakers, R&D experts, material developers, suppliers and end users from across Europe, is a top opportunity to address major sectors such as energy, transport, health, construction.  





Research & Innovation in materials is no longer an insulate company matter.

In 2010, a group of European Technology Platforms (EuMaT, Textiles and Clothing, Sustainable Chemistry, Manufuture, Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies, Steel Technology and Sustainable Mineral Resources) have joined forces to link their strong materials research agendas and coordinate their activities in this area – an unprecedented move to improve the way materials innovations are being developed in Europe. The Alliance for Materials (A4M) was created.

With MatVal, an EU-funded project started in 2012, A4M enters its implementation phase by creating the conditions for a significant enlargement of the network to include all sectors active along the value chains. It will bring together the relevant stakeholders from the European materials community - for a real integration of voices and visions.

“Europe is now equipped with a multi-stakeholder forum to develop and share a single view on materials needs”, says Dr Marco Falzetti, A4M chairman and MatVal coordinator. Our objective is to speed up the implementation of material innovations towards the end-user market applications.”

As advanced materials will play a significant part in the development of future goods and services, MatVal ensures that key materials innovations are identified, supported and delivered to the market in a timely manner.

 “A4M is a new way of thinking”, Dr Falzetti continues. “This launch event marks major strides towards an integrated materials agenda in Europe”.

About MatVal

The MatVal project is funded via the European Commission’s FP7 research program and its full title is ‘Alliance for Materials – A value chain approach to materials research and innovation’. The project is coordinated by Centro Sviluppo Materiali SPA (CSM).

A website will be launched in the coming weeks.

EuMaT cooperation with other ETPs

EuMaT is one of a small number of cross-cutting Platforms that supports technologies which underpin the interests of a number of other ETPs. Whilst it is not their main activity, many of the Platforms have an interest in Materials and Technologies. We would like to understand what the priority areas for materials R&D are within other ETPs so that a coordinated response can be given to the Commission.

Therefore, EuMaT has initiated bringing together selected ETPs with potential interest in Materials Technologies with the purpose to: 

  • understand the priority areas of Materials Technology which are of interest to other ETPs,
  • understand how these align with EuMaT’s priorities,
  • use these to help define future priority areas for EuMaT and its recommendations to the EC,
  • discuss possible links between Platforms with mutual interests in Materials Technologies.

The European Commission will be regularly informed by EuMaT about the progresses of this activity, and a workshop with a number of ETPs is being planned (expected period Autumn 2009), with the support of the Materials Unit, Directorate G, to have a discussion regarding the coordination and prioritisation of Materials activities across various ETPs. The results of the workshop will be used by the Commission as elements of advice to the definition of future programmes and actions on Materials Research, including possible joint initiatives with other parts of the FP.

So far positive responses to this initiative have been received from: 

  • European Technology Platform on Future Manufacturing Technologies (MANUFUTURE)
  • European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry (SUSCHEM)
  • European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP)
  • European Technology Platform for Micro- and Nano-Manufacturing (MINAM)
