Nanomaterials have evolved over the last decade to shape regulatory changes worldwide, and, with constant innovation in materials and processes, a new king is in town, Advanced Materials. Increasingly, policy makers, public authorities and funding agencies refer to advanced materials, with the European Commission moving away from reference to nanomaterials and into a focus on advanced materials in the upcoming Horizon Europe. We take a look at what exactly Advanced Materials are, whether they are a ‘thing’ at all and how actors such as the OECD and regulatory agencies are addressing the new kid in town. We also provide a short introduction to the nanomaterials sector and how nanomaterials have been used to add functionality in coatings and surfaces, with some examples from NIA’s industrial members. Overcoming some of the challenges to bringing new nanomaterials to market will also be addressed and some examples given as to how these have been overcome.
