Value Added Materials importance as an industrial sector

Advanced Value Added Materials (VAM) is a traditional European strength with a very high market potential (Circa 1 trillion € by 2050).

Energy and Environment represent the two key materials sectors in terms of growth potential and absolute value (>50%)

Europe must ensure that the advanced materials sector continues to be a key industrial capability for the foreseeable future. We will only achieve this by using all our collective resources in the same direction

EMIRI’s value proposition

  • EMIRI is an ‘industrially’ driven association comprising leading companies and R&D stakeholders representing the full economic value chain throughout Europe

    • providing guidance, focus, direction and commitment to succeed in

    • commercialising value added materials programmes for

    • strategic low carbon energy applications fully in line with the SET Plan Materials Road Map

EMIRI goals & status

EMIRI is an ‘industrially’ driven association comprising leading companies and R&D stakeholders representing the full economic value chain throughout Europe and provides guidance, focus, direction and commitment to succeed in commercialising value added materials programmes for strategic low carbon energy applications fully in line with the SET Plan materials road map.

EMIRI is a grass roots, European industry driven association

EMIRI will be based on the cross cutting enabling SET Plan Materials Roadmap

EMIRI will integrate the full value chain to ensure fully appropriate materials’ cost – performance ratio

EMIRI will be incorporated as a legal entity (AISBL) in 2nd quarter 2012 with circa 30 founding members from industry, research and universities with a goal to triple active membership by the end of 2012

EMIRI’s preferred route at present is to develop and implement a long term public – private partnership arrangement in the framework of the Horizon 2020 programme that will also be inclusive of regional and members state funding sources

  • We believe that the SET Plan is an exciting concept for the following reasons:

  • It identifies one of the essential challenges for society as well as an integrated vision for solutions

  • It provides a fabric for European research and industry actors to work together more effectively as a coherent whole, better able to compete in a highly aggressive global environment

  • More effective use of resources at a European scale that avoid unnecessary duplication of intellectual efforts and infrastructure will allow to go beyond critical mass to support cutting edge research and innovation programmes

  • The SET Plan Materials road map highlights the necessity and desirability for a cross cutting enabling capability organised on a European scale for advanced energy materials applications

EMIRI – Bridging the innovation gap for energy materials – Aahrus, 20th June 2012


Bridging the innovation gap for energy materials

There are many synergies between applications for different materials.

Organising materials research and development on a cross-cutting basis makes sense to be more effective and further enhance the level of excellence and strength of the sector.

The EMIRI partnership is an implementation mechanism to bring added value innovation in the SET Plan energy materials roadmap

Industry together with the research community in partnership with public authorities will be able to define research priorities and implementation in line with market needs and long term public industrial policy goals

Research, Development & Innovation, Private €

Added Value Innovation

Public €

  • The public authorities ideally need to devise a clear European wide strategic funding mechanism that will invest in a common vision and allow pooling of resources for optimal return on public funding investment by:

    • Avoiding needless duplication of RDI

    • Permit critical mass investment and deployment for strategically critical areas

Key Messages

EMIRI is an implementaion mechanism that will provide guidance, focus, direction and commitment to achieve commercially successful value addded materials programmes for energy technologies.

Europe has a world class materials industry able to compete on a global scene, but today materials are not sufficiently emphasised at EU level and we need to close this gap.

Early inclusion of industry in an R&D programme provides a better guarantee of having a final material/product fit for market and deployment.

EMIRI is industry driven, EU in scope and will bring economic value, scientific leadership and employment as well as particpating in resolving two of society’s key future challenges (i.e. climate change and access to sustainable affordable energy).

EMIRI is inclusive, i.e. EMIRI will be working with all interested parties to ensure a successful implementation of the SET plan materials road map for the success of the EU industry and EU competitiveness.
