MaterialsWeek 2024

The MaterialWeek will take place in CrownPlaza Hotel in Limassol, Cyprus from 17th – 21st June 2024.


The next good opportunity to strengthen the collaboration and strengthen the community is the MaterialWeek 2024. The event is organised by 5 sister projects on „characterisation and visualisation“ (HORIZON-CL4-2022-DIGITAL-EMERGING-01-35: Advanced characterisation methodologies to assess and predict the health and environmental risks of nanomaterials (RIA) – ACCORDsiCareMACRAMÉnanoPASSPOTENTIAL) and by local host Antreas Afantitis (NovaMechanics, coordinator of CompSafeNano project).

Strategic R&I for the Value Chains of the Future

MaterialsWeek 2024 aims to bring together – for the first time – the numerous small and large Research and Innovation (R&I) communities that are driving advances in materials innovation manifested across diverse value chains and industrial markets.

By addressing all materials application sectors and R&I communities concerned with the (re-)discovery, identification, improvement, handling, processing, manufacturing, (re-)use and recycling of materials, MaterialsWeek 2024 provides a cross-disciplinary meeting venue for communication and collaboration over and beyond traditional community boundaries. The aim of the meeting is to combine insights, theories, and methods from different fields to address complex issues. In addition, the meeting will emphasise the fluidity of disciplinary boundaries and encourage the free flow of ideas and methods between different fields. This convergence aims to ultimately foster the best joint R&I approaches for meeting today’s challenges and innovation requirements, including, but not limited to, more sustainability, circularity and resilience in materials’ uses, higher reliability and efficiency in both R&I and sustainability assessment and safety testing of materials.

MaterialsWeek 2024 will highlight and address all relevant R&I aspects along different materials innovation chains, including from up-stream pre-competitive basic research to end-of-life, highlighting and elaborating solutions to the challenges arising in the context of the overarching policies (e.g. EU Green Deal, Chemical Strategy for Sustainability (CSS), Chips Act, Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP), Bioeconomy Strategy, Critical Raw Material Act, to name but a few), and their targets (e.g. the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), decarbonisation).
