European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC)

The European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC) is a European initiative set up at the beginning of 2016, based on and strengthening the existing European Materials Characterisation Cluster (created at the end of 2014).

  • The EMCC is a bottom-up activity based on the involvement and support of a wide range of stakeholders.   

  • Coordination between European, national, regional initiatives and Member State support and contribution will be essential to reach full impact of the EMCC.
