  • The A4M community’s response to the COVID pandemic:

Materials-related platforms and organizations have expanded or amended their short and mid-term strategic goals in response to the COVID pandemic's challenges. The A4M community has compiled a non-exhaustive list of instances of these responses.

The European Technology Platform for Advanced Materials and Technologies, EUMAT, published the EUMAT RoadMap, the RD Priorities in Advanced Materials, the EuMat Position Paper, and a document emphasizing the importance of "Materials Made in Europe" with the message that "Advanced Materials are essential" prior to the COVID crisis, anticipating the demands of the COVID crisis. EUMAT and the Alliance for Materials (A4M) released an important Memorandum signed by 242 institutions, as well as the "Alliance for Materials Position Paper," explaining the role of materials in the Green Deal and Digital Age, as well as the need and capacity of the materials community to provide solutions for Materials for Tomorrow. As a reaction to the COVID-19 issues, EUMAT-A4M has gathered project ideas and proposals. The research needs for enhanced surfaces, safe materials, testing methodologies, modelling and data integration, materials for digitalization, the circular economy, and resilience are described in the ANNEX of this publication.

  • Solutions for the challenges of the Post-COVID19 society

The Materials community supports the European Green Deal and EU advances in digitization, science and technology integration education, and it offers a range of solutions to address social, societal, and economic concerns arising from or exacerbated by the epidemic.

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the creation of contemporary solutions to address societal concerns, prompting discussion of a new global economic model in which the "circular economy" will play a vital role. The circular economy aims to preserve a product's usefulness as high as feasible while removing design waste from the system. It advocates for a shift away from consumerism and ownership toward sharing and use. Companies must build new interactions with their consumers, suppliers, and the value chain's extremes as a result of the advent of circular economy business models. As a foundation for materials management, it is built on connectivity and interaction. A circular business model was demonstrated to provide resilience to enterprises during the COVID-crisis, allowing them to more readily react and adapt to unexpected events. Digital technologies can help with the transition from a linear to a circular economy by: a) enhancing end-of-life management practices, predictive and condition-based maintenance, or enabling new business models such as product-service systems; b) enhancing end-of-life management practices, predictive and condition-based maintenance, extending product lifetime, or enabling new business models such as product-service systems. The incorporation of functional electronics into products has the potential to extend the useful life of materials and products, reduce resource use and waste by increasing resource efficiency, reducing waste generation at the production and use stages, and improving material and product repair (including self-healing), remanufacturing, recovery, reuse, and recycling. The digital circular economy's major principles include blockchain, machine learning, and digital twins. The introduction of digital technologies into the production system will be required for their application.

Materials recovery and waste re-/upcycling technologies are required, as are residue-safe solutions. Materials that have been repurposed, redesigned, or reshaped will benefit from additive manufacturing technology. Recycling various materials components in order to develop competitive, highly customized products at lower production costs can lead to new business opportunities. Gaining experience and knowledge in additive manufacturing could have a huge impact on the quick production of protective equipment to address crucial shortages in hospitals.
