Who we are
EMIRI catalyses public private interactions and ensures that public innovation programs do contribute to protecting & reinforcing the industrial sector of Advanced Materials for low carbon energy.
Since 2012, EMIRI – the Energy Materials Industrial Research Initiative – represents about 60 organizations (industry, research, associations) active in Advanced Materials Technologies for clean and sustainable energy & mobility. The association contributes to industrial leadership ofdevelopers, producers and key users of advanced materials by shaping innovation, manufacturing and energy policy framework at European level.
In the frame of Horizon 2020, EMIRI closely collaborated with the European Commission to develop an Innovation Pillar on advanced Materials & nanotech for clean energy & clean mobility technologies. More recently, EMIRI has been instrumental in setting up BATT4EU, the European Partnership under Horizon Europe on Batteries. EMIRI keeps proposing an updated multi-annual technology roadmap focused on advanced materials innovations for clean and sustainable energy and mobility technologies, contributing to achieve the EU net-zero carbon ambition by 2050.

To drive forward Research & Innovation in Europe on Advanced Materials for Clean and Sustainable Energy and Mobility
A sustainable, competitive European industry holding a globally leading position in providing and using Advanced Materials for clean and sustainable energy and mobility, enabling a carbon-neutral and fully circular future for our planet and society
EMIRI shapes the R+D funding framework for advanced materials used in clean energy and mobility technologies at European level by influencing the European R&D policy-making process.
By organizing workshops, brokerage events, conferences and other meetings, EMIRI facilitates knowledge exchange and contact among EMIRI members and with other stakeholders with a focus on advanced materials for clean energy and mobility.
EMIRI advises its members on European R&D and innovation funding opportunities.
Technology and Market Intelligence
EMIRI elaborates useful reports such as its multi-annual technology roadmap to reflect the current market situation, identify research gaps and establish key R&D priorities in the field of advanced materials for clean energy and mobility.
EMIRI’s focus groups gather experts on different technology areas. The Focus Groups are responsible for keeping the technology roadmap up to date and promoting it towards relevant stakeholders at EU, national and regional levels.
