Workshop Europe in motion

europe in motion_0.jpg

This half day workshop brought together a panel of key actors in the field of advanced materials in Europe. The three major objectives were:

  • Show to the International Materials Community that Europe is very present in keyuptodate topics at both scientific and technological levels, through a number of initiatives, like platforms, networks, committees from industry, research institutions and academia, which create an effective single European space for RDT in the field of materials.
  • The advanced materials are currently present in a large majority of global bottom up or top down projects in several key areas as the Energy, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Biotechnology (see Table 1).
  • The outcome of the present research will be the seed for new high level jobs which will have to be created in the future for our prosperity. This very fast increase of the importance of materials for our future will be demonstrated in the "Horizon 2020" RDT programme, which should define the orientations selected by the Parliament.

The presence at this workshop of representatives from the E.C., policy makers and stakeholders besides the scientific community facilitated exchanges and allowed to be ready to participate to the H 2020 programme, starting 2014.
