The Mission of the Institute for Advanced Materials (IAM) is to support the sustainable development and competitiveness of European industry through research on the structural integrity and performance of materials in components and processes in areas of concern to the public. The prime applications are in the sectors of energy, transport and chemical processes. The Institute manages the High Flux Reactor (HFR) for the benefit of the European nuclear industry and supports nuclear application in medicine.

IAM conducts fundamental and technological research and development into advanced materials, structural components and advanced engineering relevant to their industrial applications in all targeted sectors in its Mission. IAM also develops characterization techniques and testing methodologies for industrial and structural materials and components. Finally, IAM contributes through international networking to research projects improving the dissemination of information on materials, structural integrity aspects and advanced engineering.

This report focuses on the involvements of IAM listing its scientific achievements as well as denoting their particular attention to quality in such areas of concern as Citizen Health, Emission Reduction Technologies and Citizen Safety.
