Europe in Motion



Monday, May 2 (14:00-17:00)
Room Artois 1 (level 5)

This half day workshop has two major objectives:

  • Show to the International Materials Community that Europe is very present in key and cutting edge topics at scientific and technological levels through a number of initiatives, such as platforms, networks, committees from industry, research institutions, and academia.
  • Show that advanced materials are currently present in a large majority of global bottom up or top down projects in several key areas such as Energy, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), as well as Biotechnology.
    The outcome of todays research will be the seed for new high level jobs which will be created in the future for our prosperity.
