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 & Frontier 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
AMPT Continues its mission to enable an infrastructure to use Advanced & Frontier Materials to solve complex multi scale challenges of global magnitude.
Announcing World's First Frontier Materials Hub
AMPT is pleased to announce a new global initiative: PUZZLE X, dedicated to enabling materials of the future to help our world today through Frontier Material commercialization and tech development. Supported by the Government of Spain, Generalitat of Catalonia and Barcelona City Hall, PUZZLE X is a global event + a 365-day venture builder bridging the worlds of Frontier Materials, societal impact, entrepreneurship, corporate innovation with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
PUZZLE X 2021 was co-located with Smart City Expo World Congress Nov 16-18 in Barcelona with over 1,100 in person attendees. The event brought togetherb leading minds in the world of business, corporate innovation, science and venture capital offering attendees the unique platform to XChange, Co-Create and Ignite the next generation of products and cutting edge solutions for a more sustainable world.
A GLOBAL ALLIANCE
30+ COUNTRY CHAPTERS
" The future will be built with Frontier Materials & PUZZLE X is a world-wide pioneering initiative"
Laia Bonet - Deputy Mayor of Barcelona
The building blocks of the future.
Materials with immense potential for ushering a new era in technology and heralding new hopes for humanity.
The term "Frontier Materials" and its conceptual context was adopted by AMPT Director General and gained use by AMPT in 2020 to introduce a class of materials distinguished from the classical and much broader term "Advanced Materials".
Frontier materials such as Graphene, 2D, quantum and low dimensional materials are marked by the rapid pace of research breakthroughs and developmental interest as well as the significant degree of investment, nurture and infrastructure support that is needed for them to reach desired momentum. Frontier materials have the potential to revolutionize and transform sectors and domains akin to the modern transformation enabled by silicon. However, due to their unique nature and R&D profile, implementation timelines and characteristics will be different than those of advanced materials such as composites or ceramics.

Strategic Roadmap & Cluster mobilization
MATTER Action Pillars
In 2020, the major focus of the taskforce has been to respond to the immediate need for advanced & frontier material innovation for the Covid-19 pandemic.
Implementing the MATTER 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.
