In the frame of the European Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS programme), in the last 15 years many research and demonstration projects have been carried out on different aspects of EAF technology, aiming at improving the process performance in terms of energy and resource optimisation, flexibility and environmental impact. This effort contributed to the development of a number of technological solutions in terms of process modelling, measurement systems and process control. Within the RFCS programme, in 2014 and 2015 the project "Valorisation and dissemination of EAF technology" (VALEAF) was carried out. This project aimed at analysing and disseminating the most important results of European research projects dealing with the different aspects of EAF technology. The paper will presents the applied methods as well as the achieved results and deliverables of the dissemination work performed in the VALEAF project. It will covers the critical analysis of the results obtained in more than 60 EU funded projects with respect to the main topics of EAF technology. The most important results in these fields were selected for valorisation and dissemination within a series of seminars and workshops, which turned out to be a useful step forward to diffuse and favour the exploitation of the findings, and to provide a clear picture of the actual status of European EAF technology. Finally future industrial targets and requirements for further research activities were identified, and a roadmap for future developments of EAF technology was defined.
