Nanotechnologies, Materials, Production Materials and Manufacturing research within the Next Framework Programme: 

Nanotechnologies, Materials, Production Materials and Manufacturing research within the Next Framework Programme Krakow 22 September 2001 Hervé Péro: Head of Unit - DG Research


Manufacturing Systems will always remain crucial for economy ! 2 million enterprises, many of which are SMEs, need to adapt to new context & sustainable development Research is a must to help solving society problems and to maintain competitiveness Cooperation is needed to achieve critical mass and create sufficient impact However Europe needs a revised research system ...


Higher need to integrate European Research Activities, public and private Balance between breakthrough oriented activities and more society driven ones Need to structure and to strengthen foundations of the European Research Area (e.g. enlargement) … limited funds (5% of EU public funds) therefore obligation to prioritise … from FP5 to FP6


Research is needed … but should shift existing paths towards sustainable development ...


In this context, research priorities, for future production systems, could be ... Integration e.g. concurrency, life cycle approaches, product-services, extended enterprise, from information to knowledge, etc Considering dematerialisation i.e. reducing material consumption (e.g. miniaturisation, study of new consumption and production patterns)


Suggested Research Priorities ...


Nanotechnology The new approach, from “small” to macro-structures presents challenges and huge opportunities and economic potential ... Proposed RTD priorities: nano-science nano-biotechnologies nano-scale engineering & nano-devices multi-sectorial applications...


Intelligent Materials Since materials represent 30 - 40% of product costs, higher added value, new sustainable and knowledge intensive materials needs to be looked at Proposed RTD priorities: Fundamental knowledge Production / transformation of new materials Engineering support for customised applications


Future Production Processes to substantially improve quality, safety and resource efficiency; reduce consumption Proposed RTD priorities: Adaptation of production to radical innovations (e.g. nanotechnologies) Converging info and production technologies Resource efficiency, safety, added-value, & sustainability of industrial systems New life cycle design / production concepts

Objectives of European Aerospace: 

Objectives of European Aerospace Priority 4 in the EC proposal for the 6th FP The aim of activities carried out is two fold : To consolidate, by integrating its research efforts, the position of EU aerospace industry vis-à-vis increasingly strong world competition To help exploit the potential of EU research in this sector with a view to improving safety and environmental protection

Goals in aeronautics: 

Goals in aeronautics Increase the competitiveness of EU industry with regard to commercial aircraft, engines and equipement Reduce environmental nuisances and loads (CO2 and NOX emissions, noise) Increase aircraft safety in the context of the substantial rise in air traffic Increase the capacity and safety of the aviation system, in support to the “Single European Sky” (ATC & ATM systems)

Goals in space: 

Goals in space Community space activities, in close coordination with ESA, to strenghen the coherence of the very major investment involved, will address the implementation of : The Galileo satellite navigation project The GMES platform for monitoring for environmental and security Advanced research needed to integrate the space segment and the Earth segment in the field of communications
