A Public-Benefit Global Initiative
CROSSING BOUNDARIES & BORDERS
Transcending politics, territories, cultures and ideologies, nations, groups and organizations come together to share knowledge and resources to use Advanced Materials for the betterment of human life.
In April of 2020, at the peak of the world challenges with Covid-19 Pandemic, the AMPT taskforce was created to address the need for advanced material global strategy & coordination for response to global health emergencies.
The task force was created to establish a frame work to set strategies, coordinate global activities and bring together critical mass and resources from multidisciplinary domains, including Engineering, Life & Health Sciences, Public Health and Economics & Social Sciences.
Through a resource and knowledge-sharing approach, AMPT was set to identify current and future needs to develop and implement innovative solutions based on Advanced Materials in the pandemics and post pandemic era. By creating a library of knowledge, extensive mapping of user centric needs, an expansive network of scientific labs, advanced material companies, testing facilities, the taskforce was positioned to formulate a roadmap delineating how advanced materials solutions can be deployed at different phases of a pandemic such as COVID19.
A GLOBAL ALLIANCE
15 COUNTRY CHAPTERS | 8 Working Groups
Library of knowledge
Map of Needs
Strategic Roadmap & Cluster mobilization
AMPT Action Pillars
In 2020, the major focus of the taskforce has been to respond to the immediate need for advanced material innovation for the Covid-19 pandemic.
Implementing the AMPT preparedness response platform and applying the knowledge gathered through the 3 pillars of AMPT:
AMPT Library of Knowledge | AMPT mapping of user-centric, technological and societal needs | and the AMPT network of Advanced Material resources and expertise, the taskforce will provide an analysis of potential underserved areas and current and future opportunities.
Leveraging the roadmap, the Taskforce will set strategies for integration of Advanced Materials in the new wave of innovation that will rise in the post pandemic era and explore the next generation of solutions for the future global health crisis.
The scope of AMPT Future Preparedness expands way beyond pandemic, same action pillars will be used to address any of challenges put at the focal point of the taskforce.
How can Advanced Materials be implemented as a key component to Future Preparedness?
AMPT Definition of "Preparedness":
Building an Infrastructure and a robust Network to enable one to respond quickly and effectively when a need arises.
