Benchmark of R&I programmes with the EMMC roadmap priorities

Advanced Materials and Materials Modelling are key enablers to contribute to the EU industrial competitiveness and to reach the EC policy goals, such as the Green Deal, the digitisation and the EU sovereignty.

There will be several funding opportunities spread in the different European R&I programmes currently under preparation for the next multiannual financial framework (MFF), that will help release the potential of materials modelling and digitalisation.

A general overview of the main possibilities to implement the EMMC roadmap distributed in the programmes will be presented.

The talk will set the session scene. It will be followed by programme-specific talks providing a deeper understanding of some of the programmes.
