Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies (EuMat)
Thematic task force/working group in EU
Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials & new production technologies
Materials are everywhere; they make modern life possible and constitute the basis of the welfare of mankind. Today, the advanced engineering materials and technologies industry faces a number of important challenges including environmental legislation, recycling requirements and increasing costs of energy and commodity raw materials. There is a trend to shift production to low labour cost countries, combined with a rapidly developing technological competence in those countries.
