1 Partnership between European industry and academia in the field of materials Ehrenfried Zschech, FEMS President July 10, 2012 European Parliament, STOA Workshop, Brussels

2 FEMS – A cross-section of MSE in Europe

3 FEMS aims to strengthen interactions obetween Materials Scientists and Engineers across Europe obetween European Materials Societies obetween Member Societies and the European Commission. FEMS aims to be a corner-stone for building a Europe of Materials, for supporting future funding for research and development, and to provide a platform for knowledge exchange in the field of MSE. The role of FEMS in Europe

4 The role of materials: A cross-cutting element

5 Positive example No 1 for innovation: Airbus A318 and A380 LBW structures with weldable 6XXX alloys: LBW Fuselage Structure: LBW Fuselage Structure: - Weight reduction (approx. 10%) - Manufacturing costs reduction (approx. 20%) - Improved corrosion resistance LBW Fuselage Structure: LBW Fuselage Structure: - Weight reduction (approx. 10%) - Manufacturing costs reduction (approx. 20%) - Improved corrosion resistance 6013T6 Extrusion, TEM image (courtesy H. Berek, TU Freiberg) High strength stiffner DT skin material

6 Positive example No 1 for innovation: Airbus A350 XWB puts the right material in the right place! Courtesy G. Hellard, Airbus Two additional drivers: maintenance costs / availability passenger comfort

7 Positive example No 2 for innovation: Novaled OLEDs with complex materials stacks address two markets: Display Lighting Picture performance Energy saving LCD technology Large area New design Thin, flexible Energy saving

8 Positive example No 2 for innovation: Novaled Improved power efficiency by voltage minimization through PIN approach and Novaled materials + Transport Layer Emitting Layer Transport Layer ++ -- Substrate Anode Hole Transport Electron Transport Emission Cathode - Light Emission Standard OLED Stack Novaled PIN OLED ® Technology Novaled PIN OLED ® Technology Benefits P-doped transport layer Intrinsic emitting layer N-doped transport layer NOVALED innovative technology: Doped OLED structures with in-house developed materials »Extremely low operating voltage »Easy integration on all substrates »Very high power efficiency and long lifetime »Freedom in OLED design well adjusted thickness of transport layers without Ohmic losses Novaled P – dopant Novaled N - dopant

9 Present situation in Europe Bottleneck at innovation: Only 15% of hightech products originate from Europe. Despite of positive examples: Typical present situation in Europe

10 Europe needs technological research, development and competitive manufacturing, to enter into the world market with success. Proposal: Support of pilot line projects in Europe. The valley of death

11 oSupport of SMEs: Knowledge transfer oUniversity-based European Collaborative Research Consortium oNew innovation paradigms and methodologies 3 proposals for future activities

12 Focus on application-oriented R&D and technology transfer Novel and innovative forms of collaboration between academia and industry (FEMS Strategy Meeting July 2012) Specific events tailored at transfer of knowledge from research to industry: EUROMAT conference series (EUROMAT 2013 Sevilla). Support of SMEs: Knowledge transfer

13 Goal: Create a program for research cooperation in the field of MSE that is targeted to excellence in applied science and education as well as should ensure/improve the competitiveness of Europe. Found a European university-based research consortium with Member Companies to establish an integrated university research capability and a basis for an exclusive networking between the partners (Member Companies and top university research groups). Financed mainly by Member Companies and partially by European funding: Particularly PhD students and their research activities are financially supported. "Member Companies" provide research needs statements from the perspective of industry. Scientists from universities submit Research Proposals, that are evaluated and selected for funding by boards. Annual Research Review meetings, with board members, industry liaisons, university faculties and funded PhD students. Idea of a university-based European Collaborative Research Consortium, Liaison with industry

14 IP creation University (academia) Member company (industry) Research council: sponsorship Sponsored research program IP assets IP transfer IP commercialization Collaborative Research Consortium Industry in drivers seat, however initial funding needed.

15 Pooled industry involvement in support of university research! Benefits … for the universities - Sponsoring of university research (particularly of PhD students) - Orientation of research and education on industry/technology needs … for industry - High leverage, compelling return-on-investment ("Pooling of Funds"), maximizing value of research investment - Pre-competitive research results from the best research groups of the world, timely and efficient technology transfer - Leveraging of core competence and infrastructure - Recruiting: excellently educated and trained scientists/engineers Potential benefits of a European Collaborative Research Consortium / Program in the field of MSE

16 1) Control tower to monitor and to coordinate materials research and innovation activities in Europe, involving all stake holders (universities, industry, societies, European organizations) 2) Enhancing new paradigms for research and innovation: KIC on Materials KIC (= Knowledge and Innovation Communities) is one option to facilitate the following transitions from idea to product from lab to market from student to entrepreneur European level Proposal: New innovation paradigms and methodologies

17 ....and we are pleased to continue to interact with MEP and the European Commission in the interest of the best implementation of Materials R&D&I for a better Europe of Knowledgement and Application as it should be Horizon 2020 and EIT Thank you for your attention E-MRS - European Materials Research Society Rodrigo Martins President rm@uninova.pt EuMaT - European Technology Platform on Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies Marco Falzetti President m.falzetti@c-s-m.it FEMS – the Federation of European Materials Societies Ehrenfried Zschech President ehrenfried.zschech@izfp-d.fraunhofer.de EMF- the European Materials Forum President of the Polish Academy of Sciences Michal Kleiber President mkleiber@ippt.gov.pl
