World Materials Summit 2013

Strasbourg, France
October 12-15, 2013

Materials: A Key enabling Technology for Secure Energy & Sustainable Development

- Forum for Next Generation Researchers, Oct. 12-13 / European Youth Center, Strasbourg
- World Materials Summit, Oct. 14-15 / Council of Europe, Strasbourg

 

This World Materials Summit in Europe is the fourth in a series that has circulated the globe over the past six years; starting in Lisbon, Portugal on 4-5 October 2007, continuing in Suzhou, Shanghai, China on 12-15 October 2009 and most recently in Washington DC, USA on 8-12 October 2011.

Viewed from a strategic perspective, Advanced Materials are the basis for key enabling technologies. Consequently this field, ranging from R&D to manufacturing, is regarded worldwide as a driver for sustainable economic growth. The European Commission, e.g., identified especially Advanced Materials as one out of 6 Key Enabling Technologies ensuring that European industry can compete successfully on the global stage. Mastering Advanced Materials help to transform – mature as well as new innovative – industries from resource intensive to knowledge intensive ones. The Commission’s European Competitiveness Report 2010 indicated a global current market volume of EUR 646 billion (around 2006/2008), which is projected to grow to over EUR 1 trillion by 2015. Our international colleagues indicate similar figures.

This World Summit is therefore very timely in view of the ongoing economic crisis across the globe. It will provide a unique forum for discussing global research, development and innovation issues for materials for energy. It will provide a series of recommendations for Policy Makers designed to accelerate the contribution that Advanced Materials can make to accelerate global economic growth.
