During the first week of March 2010 a workshop on ‘Hybrid Materials, future needs and opportunities between material classes’ is being organized by SusChem with the suppport of the Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI) and in conjunction with the European Commission. There is a clear need to increase the involvement of leading European materials producing companies in the Commission Research Framework Programmmes and increase their innovation focus.
The workshop will focus on developing new strategies in materials research in Europe that will serve to inform SusChem’s input into relevant areas of FP8. The outcome of the workshop will also be used to adjust the DPI’s research programme over the next five years.
The workshop will cover two days (noon to noon) and will involve up to 20 keynote speakers, who will give their views on materials needs over the next 4 – 10 years. The workshop will take place in Luxembourg at the European Commission's Jean Monnet building on 3 - 4 March.
