A strategic approach to increasing Europe’s value proposition for Additive Manufacturing technologies and capabilities
A CSA addressing topic FOF-05-2016 (Horizon 2020 Programme)
The overall objective of the AM-Motion CSA is to contribute to a rapid market uptake of AM technologies across Europe by connecting and upscaling existing initiatives and efforts, improving the conditions for large-scale, cross-regional demonstration and market deployment, and by involving a large number of key stakeholders, particularly from industry.
The AM-Motion proposal will achieve a unique combination of expertise and networks in the following important areas:
- Key technological capabilities and infrastructure
- Barriers and market failings to industrialisation and deployment
- Key future applications and markets
- Relevant industrial lead-users
- Links with regional initiatives and policies
By doing this, the AM-Motion project has the ambition to develop a strategy and set up the pillars for its efficient implementation that, ultimately, will contribute to reinforcing the European ecosystem of AM.
For this Project, the EPMA has joined a Consortium of 13 partners from 7 countries including: TNO, TWI, CEA., ERRIN, IDEA, Brainport, Airbus, D’appolonia, Siemens, Cecimo, Materialise and Prodintec as the Project Leader. The EPMA will, among others, coordinate a Materials & Processes Experts Working Group with main actors from industry and RTDs working on material and process development and organise an AM Summer School in 2018.
