Title : Novel materials by design for substituting critical materials
Description : Specific challenge: Many technologies with significant socio-economic benefits face material requirements that are, or may be, problematic due to their instable, insecure or price-volatile supply. Research is needed in particular to improve our fundamental understanding of the development of new material solutions with a reduced or completely eliminated critical content, while maintaining or enhancing the performance of the materials, components and products. Examples may be the critical raw materials (see COM(2011)25 and related documents) or those materials which may be hazardous or pose a risk to human health and/or the environment.
Targeted countries : Japan, United States of America
