ECTP Materials & Sustainability Committee has issued it updated Position Paper for Horizon Europe

The current EU RTD Framework Program, Horizon 2020, will run until the end of 2020. Discussions and preparations for Horizon Europe, the next Framework Program, covering the period 2021 – 2027 are on-going.

As part of ECTP, it is the Materials and Sustainability (M&S) Committee’s goal to develop a common Vision and Strategic Research Agenda for all construction material stakeholders. This common view will serve as a starting point for future networking and R&D cooperation that will develop solutions helping to overcome societal challenges and to ensure that the construction material sector will, in the long-term, secure its competitiveness and sustainability.

A first version of this Position Paper was developed and published in September 2017 with the purpose to provide insight into current and upcoming construction material related key-challenges that we strongly believe deserve to be addressed within Horizon Europe.

Purpose of this update is to make a link between the construction material related key-challenges as identified in the previous version of this Position Paper and the Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) published by the United Nations as part of their 2030 Ambitions.
