Abstract Scope Recent threats to society such as extreme weather, health pandemic, material shortages, and other societal disruptions have increased the urgency of the transition to a resilient and sustainable society. The proposed technical solutions depend heavily on metals and materials. Metallurgists and material scientists need to play their part. Multidisciplinary, entrepreneurial approaches are needed, in which industry, academia and government organisations work and learn together. The foundations for learning and collaboration have been developed. These are firmly rooted in the non-technical sciences: social, behavioral and economical. Taking the education, policy and technology & industry perspectives we explore the key concepts for success. Going forward, it is time to connect the dots, create a massive movement for fast learning and innovation, and leverage the (digital) tools available today.
