The new open challenges for HORIZON Europe

"Creativity Towards Future Science Challenges"

The President of EURASC, Professor Rodrigo Martins integrates the world scientist group asked for thinking what Materials we will need for the future. The group that includes 20 top world scientists define a new paradigm for science, called STEM Materials, whose concept is to design and create a material able to integrate functions, such as an organ. This concept was accepted by the director of DG Research on Prosperity of the European Commission, Peter Droeel, to be introduced as a key issue within the Horizon Europe programme, targeting the objectives of the Green Deal proposed by the presidency of the European Commission.
