This paper reviews the current trends and major research programmes on high temperature structural materials in Europe. The economic and environmental driving forces are briefly indicated. The research needs for allowing industrial application of advanced materials in load bearing components operating at high temperatures under aggressive environments are identified. Typical examples of recent research output of the European Commission's Institute for Advanced Materials are included. The paper closes with an overview of the major European research establishments involved in mechanical performance characterization of high temperature materials.
