MatVal, a project supported by the European Commission, started in 2012. MatVal targets materials innovation implementation through value chain collaboration and sharing ideas/visions from the European materials community.
The project brings together all key European Technology Platforms involved in materials research and innovation as well as other key materials organisations representing research societies and networks of excellence. The project is also supported by more than 20 external partners with prominent reputations in materials.
With the MatVal project, A4M intends to enter into its full implementation phase by creating the conditions for a significant enlargement of the network. Its goal is to include the other sector-oriented European Technology Platforms who are active along different value chains, while in parallel bringing together other relevant players in the European Materials Community to achieve a real integration of voices and visions.
