NMP.2012.4.1-3 Development of advances magnetic materials without, or with reduced use of, critical raw materials CALL CLOSED
Permanent magnets are essential e.g. in transport, wind energy and refrigeration applications, while externally controllable magnetic materials are being used in IT applications. Magnetic materials may require the use of critical raw materials which...
NMP.2012.4.1-4 Substitution of critical raw materials: networking, specifying R&D needs and priorities - Supporting actions CALL CLOSED
Raw materials are an essential part of both high tech products and every-day consumer products. The European Commission has adopted a new integratedstrategy which sets out targeted measures to secure and improve access to raw materials for the EU...
NMP.2013.4.1-1 Development of new materials for the substitution of critical metals CALL CLOSED
Projects are called for to investigate the development of such materials by rational design, with focus on the interplay between theory and/or large-scale computational screening and experimental methods.The synthesis or fabrication of nano- or microstructures...
NMP.2013.4.1-3 European Intelligence Network on the Supply of Raw Materials CALL CLOSED
The major objective is to create a network to facilitate access for the EU to the raw materials information sources and to promote collaboration among experts.The Coordination Action should in particular:- Create a sustainable network gathering a...
Raw materials are essential for the sustainable functioning of modern societies.

Access to and affordability of mineral raw materials are crucial for the sound functioning of the EU's economy and the competitiveness of European industry.

For this reason, this work programme, and the previous one, place renewed emphasis on raw materials.

The topics in this section contribute to the aims of the proposed European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials
