amable-open-calls-additive-manufacturing-ideasThis question is driving and guiding all actions within the threefold AMable eco-system. Europe’s first I4MS Digital Innovation Hub on Digital Design for Additive Manufacturing has just started, and it is expected that more than 150 additive ideas will receive guidance through the AMable Open Calls.

As a Factories of the Future (FoF) project participating in I4MS (ICT for Manufacturing SMEs) and with the support of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, the aim of AMable project is to accelerate the uptake of additive manufacturing technologies; from design to manufacture for functional parts throughout the European Union.

In addition, AMable is creating a digital framework to provide impartial access to the best European AM knowledge to support this adoption. This knowledge will be offered as advanced and tailored services to assist SMEs in the uptake of AM and include technological, business and training services.

The first AMable open call for proposals aims to support innovative ideas or an additively manufactured product that is economically and technologically viable.

For this particular Open Call, the European Project is looking for original ideas for an additively manufactured product that is economically and technologically viable. The Experimentation teams need to be composed of a legal entity of SME or midcap type in the supplier role, and a legal entity in the user role that represents the envisioned product’s market segment – preferably an SME, both registered in one of the European Union’s member states. In addition, the Experimentation Team needs to identify one AMable partner to act as their Tutor in the application experiment project.

The closing date will be on the 1st October 2018, 17:00 Brussels Local Time.
