|European Materials Forum|
EMF was initially launched in 2004 when a number of scientific societies and organizations decided to combine their efforts and shared interest in the debate about materials science in Europe and to stimulate the involvement of the scientific community in Europe not only as an active participant in the debate, but also to stimulate strong contacts between research and industry.
The agenda of EMF is set by the participating societies and organizations. The long-term agenda of EMF will promote scientific and technological development in Europe in the field of materials science and technology, notably by working towards the objectives defined by the Lisbon and Barcelona EU Summits. The activities of EMF include open fora, preparation of statements on European materials science policy issues, contacts with all the economic actors. EMF has already organised several meetings devoted to the funding of basic materials research in Europe and the future direction, structure and modernization of national and European materials societies in Europe. More than 80 Materials Societies have supported these conferences.
All European Academies (ALLEA), European Materials Research Society (E-MRS), European Science Foundation (ESF), European Physical Society (EPS), European Science and Technology Universities, European Science-Industry Consortium for Biomaterials and Health Care (EUROBIOMATEX), Euroscience, Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS), European Federation of Scientific and Technical Networks of Cooperation (FER) and the French Aeronautics and Space Research Center (ONERA), have also published important documents on the EMF.
The European Materials Forum is a coalition of independent organisations representative (or supportive) of communities in Europe dealing with Materials Science, Technology and Innovation.
It should cover chemistry as well as materials-related physics, engineering and biosciences.
The specific objectives of the European Materials Forum include:
