Aerospace Valley and several European academic institutions are unveiling four novel projects in the setting of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. Among the institutions include Volkswagen and Tecnalia.
EIT Manufacturing was started in 2018 and it is the KIC committed to production. It consists of 50 associates, academics, research labs, and industries from 17 nations. Aerospace Valley is one of the establishing members and the lone agent of the French aerospace sector.
As a way to make the ability of Europe to innovate strong, the European Union unveiled a unique project in 2008. This is by forming the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The institute is split into many Knowledge Innovation Communities or KICs, handling various activities.
After its initial call for offers the previous year, EIT Manufacturing has approved the funding of four ambitious and innovative projects. This is where Aerospace Valley and several top European firms take a major part either as a partner or driver.
The objective of these four outlines is to grow high technology European firms with strong and development potential. This is through allowing them to access fresh areas by improving their visibility on the European business. From January, and for a full year, devoted teams comprising of experts, academics, and manufacturers will back over 100 promising technological firms.
The Soft Dream project in collaboration with Aerospace Valley intends to create software tools that will assist to completely exploit the capacities of hybrid 3D printing. This is in a way to master costs and time for full-scale production of thermoplastic, multi-material, and metallic pieces.
The outcomes will enable growing versatility and reactiveness. This is all while reducing production, building and prototyping periods. This is, particularly in the manufacturing, automotive, aeronautic and building industries.
This outline is organized by the RISE research institute (Sweden), in conjunction with ESTIA engineering school (France), the Technical University of Braunschweig (Germany), and Volkswagen (Germany).
