- Metallurgy Europe will identify and tackle the research areas with the highest potential for innovation and industrial application. To this end, an accompanying industrial roadmap has been successfully and consultatively developed over the past 2 years, involving over 100 industrial and academic researchers across Europe.
- Metallurgy Europe will also allow for a very flexible project scheme, where the scope and the consortium composition can vary enough to perform high-impact industrially-relevant R&D. This will allow project initiatives to be carried out, with the most appropriate setup and with the most suitable players in a defined value-chain.
- Metallurgy Europe will nurture the pipeline of young talents and help convert them into innovative, highly-qualified, private-sector researchers. This will then fulfil the present need of industry for formally-trained metallurgists, while safeguarding our metallic skills-base for decades to come.
- Metallurgy Europe will inspire cross-collaboration across many sectors of industry, spanning transport, green energy, renewables, aerospace, biomedical, computing, chemistry, security, electronics and manufacturing. In turn, this will create a positive image of metallurgy, not as some 18th Century activity, but as a diverse research field full of modern discoveries and usefulness.
