The ESF EUROHORCs Science Policy Briefing 33, The EUROHORCs and ESF Vision on a Globally Competitive ERA and their Road Map for Actions to Help Build it, details essential requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to build a globally competitive ERA within the next 5-10 years. This Vision is complemented by a Road Map with an outline of concrete actions for EUROHORCs and ESF Member Organisations, as well as partners.
”EUROHORCs and ESF are committed to play a key role in shaping this ERA and this Road Map is the proof of that commitment. This policy briefing is a result of our analysis of what is needed and how our members, together with other partners, could contribute.” said ESF President Professor Ian Halliday and the President of the EUROHORCs Professor Pär Omling in a joint statement.
A Task Force established by the EUROHORCs and ESF, chaired by DFG President Professor Matthias Kleiner, prepared the Vision and Road Map. The Task Force emphasises that building such an ERA requires the involvement of a variety of actors: national and European research organisations, national governments, the EU and the private sector.
In their latest briefing the EUROHORCs and ESF list 10 essential criteria (Vision Points) that need to be met in building a successful European Research Area:1.) An effective European research policy, capitalizing on cultural, geographic and scientific diversity
9.) Effective and trusted bridges between science, society and the private sector 10.) Openness to the world
EUROHORCs and ESF and their Member Organisations are committed to develop concrete actions in 11 domains to help construct the ERA. The domains are described hereafter together with an indication of the type of actions that will be considered.Proposed Action Plan
11.) Connecting European research to the world (Addresses Vision point 10)

The Task Force is now collecting comments from the member organisations, which will be used in the further elaboration of the actions identified in the outline of the Road Map. Concrete action plans to be approved in coming governance meetings of ESF and EUROHORCs are currently being prepared. Following this approval, Member Organisations will be invited to sign up for the implementation of the actions.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
