Materials 2030 Roadmap
Download the presentation from the IndTech2022's plenary session on Systemic Approach for Advanced Materials: 2030 Perspective.
Advanced materials are key enabling technologies to deliver the solutions to reach climate neutrality, circularity and sustainability, meaning that enhanced circularity and responsible practices should systematically be part of each and every development, focusing on sustainable and safe advanced materials. Also, Europe realizes its dependency on other regions for its strategic value chains and now wants to reinforce its autonomy and preserve its technology leadership. These goals can only be achieved by collectively re-inventing the way advanced materials are developed.
Over the past months, with the support of the European Commission, the European Technology Platforms EUMAT, SUSCHEM and MANUFUTURE, and EMIRI - the Energy Materials Industrial Initiative - joined forces with the signatories of the Manifesto to elaborate a draft of the Materials 2030 Roadmap, the first milestone towards a fruitful systemic collaboration involving all the advanced materials stakeholders (upstream developers, downstream industries, citizens and all stakeholders in between).
The publication of the draft Materials 2030 Roadmap is an important milestone to pave the way towards a structured European Materials 2030 Initiative for the planet, people, and prosperity.
The draft Materials 2030 Roadmap and the proposed next steps towards a structured Materials 2030 initiative will be discussed during the upcoming IndTech2022 conference.
More practical information on the next steps and how to get involved will be available in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
