Project - Alliance for Advanced Manufacturing in Central Europe

Description


Description (EN): Advanced manufacturing technologies are a key driver of competitiveness in many industries, which contributes to keeping skills and jobs in central Europe. The AMiCE project will tackle three major challenges faced by SMEs when adopting advanced manufacturing technologies: access to knowledge; promotion of investments; and competitiveness of these projects. AMiCE will promote advanced manufacturing technologies especially focusing on 3D printing. The rise of 3D printing and fragmentation of required knowledge across the area demand transnational cooperation that will allow replication of best practices in different sites. The project will connect five innovation hubs that prioritise advanced manufacturing in their regional strategies. A tandem of partners including a business support institution and a leading university represents each innovation hub. AMiCE will also develop a knowledge platform, a network of shared demonstrators and pilot lines highlighting proven benefits of 3D print to new end-users. It will also set up a training and advisory programme to support the development of concepts and projects conceived by SMEs.
Expected Results (EN): R 1.1 Status of linkages among actors of the innovation systems achieved through transnational cooperation in central European regions
Expected Outputs (EN): The project aims at the achievement of 3 results: 1. improved strategic interaction and cooperation of the innovation service providers, 2. Improved transfer of knowledge between research and SMEs for the uptake of advanced manufacturing technologies, 3. The development of a conducive ecosystem for innovation in the fields of advanced manufacturing in CE. These results are well linked with the programme result indicator: Existing and new linkages will become more sustainable as they will be based on jointly assessed regional conditions and interests, common objectives, strategies, tools and quality standards. The actors will get access to up-to date and tailored knowledge and expertise on AM issues. That will provide an improved basis for the development of the European AM knowledge community and will help that each stakeholder can fulfil its role in the industrial modernisation. Partners and attracted stakeholders of regional and of the European innovation systems will get to know each other and will learn mutually in the common day-to day work. This is a precondition for sustainable and resilient linkages and continuous co-operations. The commonly developed tools and strategies will be that successful that the motivation to provide innovation services in a transnational scheme will be enhanced. The partnership builds on long-term already existing networks and contacts that project will be a next step to develop it further and to attract more actors to a successful team.
