The challenges in materials and process technology are numerous. Examples are the quest to develop new (nano) materials which combine unusual properties or can cope with extreme conditions, the replacement of current feedstock by biobased alternatives, finding substitutes for critical raw materials, and exploring alternative mining reserves, e.g. minerals from the deep sea. Furthermore, various additive manufacturing techniques, advanced automation and digitisation (Industry 4.0) are making their way in the manufacturing industry.
