MaterialsEuroRoads is a forum for European keyplayers in the field of foresight and forecast of developments in materials technology. Most of the institutions and stakeholders involved in this network are listed under "links". MaterialsEuroRoads developed from the former Specific Support Action SMART, which was a roadmapping project within the 6th Frameworkprogramme. The goal of MaterialsEuroRoads is to strengthen Europes position in materials technology and research by setting up a network between different European strategic materials actions and to enable a dialogue between keyplayers in foresight and funding agencies, ministries and private investors.
