Mid-term meeting of SELECTA: a European Training Network on smart electrodeposited alloys for environmentally sustainable applications
Journal article, 2017

Integrating sustainability with technological progress is becoming one of the major challenges in modern society. Since research agendas are mainly driven by the push for incessant economic growth, there is the risk of reaching a critical point where technological advances will no longer be possible due to the imbalance between demand and availability of natural resources. To face this issue, the European Training Network ‘Smart ELECTrodeposited Alloys for environmentally sustainable applications: from advanced protective coatings to micro/nanorobotic platforms’ (SELECTA) was launched in January 2015. SELECTA aims to integrate technological progress with environmental sustainability concerns, which is one of the major ‘Societal Challenges’ listed in the Horizon 2020 Work Programme.
