Project Sheet - ENMATSSA (Era-Net Materials - a Preparatory Phase)

Project ID: 3187
Funded under: FP6-COORDINATION


This is the project sheet from the ENMATSSA project. Research into the science and technology of materials is a strategically vital component of a competitive economy. But maintaining expertise right across this huge field demands a large research budget and a long history of research and development. Most European countries and regions have to specialise, leaving them vulnerable when new discoveries attract young researchers to work abroad. The ENMATSSA project brought together the research councils of seven countries active in materials research. Their aim was to lay the foundations for an ERA-NET that would identify research gaps and opportunities, promote joint research programmes, and develop a collective capacity capable of matching that of any region in the world.
