DUAL USE MATERIALS
A European Commission funded study on Dual Use Materials
– Addressing dual-use issues in enabling technologies research
About Dual Use
The focus of the web platform is on research and technology that can be applied from civil to defence and/or security applications, and vice versa, and can result in technologies, products, goods and services with one or both types of applications. There is often a strong potential for civil-military collaboration in this type of research and technology.
This platform is being developed under the study on Dual Use Materials – Addressing dual-use issues in enabling technologies research is funded by the European Commission, Directorate General R&I -Directorate F- Prosperity- Unit F4 – Materials for Tomorrow under a Framework Contract 575/PP/2016/FC of Directorate General GROW
DU Guidelines provide an extensive review of existing guidelines on how to best exploit the dual-use potential of your research results. Guidelines can be accessed and filtered according to various categories and filters.
DU Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) provide a list of some of the main questions and respective answers related to regulation, research, funding, technology transfer, ethics, and others.
