The integration of knowledge and technologies of the three areas of research above is essential in order to speed up the transformation of European industry and its economy, while adopting a safe, socially responsible and sustainable approach.

The research will focus on new applications and novel, step-change solutions responding to major challenges, including the RTD needs identified by the different European Technology Platforms.

This research should enable and sustain the knowledge-based transformation of current industrial sectors and the development of new science-based sectors through the integration of new knowledge from nano-, materials-, and production technologies in sectoral and crosssectoral applications.

The RTD approaches and objectives applied by the partners should lead to results (products, processes, methods, etc) and impacts which must observe the guidelines of the sustainable development paradigm, namely the public health, worker safety, environmental protection and the societal dimensions, including governance concerns (public awareness and acceptance).

Furthermore this research work must constitute an opportunity for Europe to consolidate the optimal normalisation and standards needed.

Several cross-cutting dimensions could be considered while handling the vast array of sectors and applications and could further inspire the emergence of topics:

− Transforming traditional industry, which faces the challenge of low-cost competition, as well as rapidly changing market expectations and behaviour. It should increase its productivity through new processes, high-added value products and new business models.

− Fostering scale-intensive and specialised suppliers industry through the adoption and integration of new advanced technologies thus enabling the improvement of its leadership in the global market.

− Promoting Science-based Industry which will play a key role in establishing a highvalue European industry. It will need the integration of most of the advanced technologies dealt with in Nanotechnologies, Materials and Production activities, enabling the development of new, high value, products and services, processes and even leading to new industries.

− Towards a sustainable supply industry is another key objective in supporting product and productivity innovation, especially for sectors with a large environmental impact.
