EuMaT – European Technology Platform for Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies has been launched in order to assure optimal involvement of industry and other important stakeholders in the process of establishing of R&D priorities in the area of advanced engineering materials and technologies. EuMaT should improve coherence in existing and forthcoming EU projects, in the field of materials R&D. EuMaT covers all elements of the life cycle of an industrial product, regardless if it is a component, a system or a final good. The main goal of EuMaT is to contribute to the best relation and dialogue between industry, R&D actors and institutions aiming at improving the coordination and synergies at national and European level in the field of Materials R&D. The primary objective of EuMaT is to produce the Strategic Research Agenda which, with appropriate involvement of industry and other main stakeholders will provide basis for identification of needs and establishing priorities in the area of advanced materials and technologies.
