About: 

ArcelorMittal is the largest steel producer in the world. Around 1300 people work in R&D worldwide in ArcelorMittal laboratories, offering a broad expertise in most technical fields related to the steel industry. The company holds leadership positions in its main markets: automotive, construction, household appliances and packaging as well as general industry.

ArcelorMittal employs 280,000 people in over 60 countries. The company places its commitment to sustainable development at the heart of its strategy and ambitions to be a benchmark for economic performance, labour relations and social responsibility. A Sustainability research group pursues R&D in this area, in connection with climate change research (it is in charge of coordinating the series of European projects included in the ULCOS program, www.ulcos.org), with LCA methodology development relative to materials, steel, steel-containing products and more (cf. the SOVAMAT initiative, www.sovamet.org).

In this Description of Work, ArcelorMittal will represent ESTEP. ESTEP, the European Steel Technology Platform is among the first ETPs created in Europe, in 2003. The ESTEP’s Working Groups gather stakeholders from the European steel industry, Academia, Research and technology centres, equipment suppliers and clients from the steel industry. In addition, the European Commission and the Member States are represented in the management committees. The Platform is financially supported by the EU steel industry only and is not a legal entity. For this reason it does not have either a Board or a general assembly, but a Steering Committee.

3 Committees are in charge of the implementation of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA): the Steering Committee, the Support Group, and the Mirror Group. 6 Working Groups are dealing with the implementation of the SRA in the different domains: (WG1 “Profit & Innovation”, WG2 appealing Steel solutions for transport, WG3 steel solutions for construction, WG4 “planet”, WG5 “People” and WG6, steel solutions for Energy)

Role: 

AMMR will be involved in WP3, WP6 (specifically task 6.3).
