Contact details

The Cluster CU Nord of Composites United e.V. is made up of the North German members of the former CFK Valley e.V. and Carbon Composites e.V. and is managed from Stade. CFK Valley e.V. was founded there in 2004, largely through the initiative of the Airbus Group based in the town. It then developed into an international network and merged with Carbon Composites e.V. to form Composites United e.V. in 2019. Stade is an important industrial and service location in the Hamburg metropolitan region, which with more than 5 million inhabitants is one of the most powerful and dynamic economic areas in Europe.

Projects

KNMP – Competence Center New Materials & Production New materials and processes open up new perspectives Traditional materials can be replaced and thus structures and properties can be completely rethought. Carbon is lighter than steel and aluminium, does not corrode, has high strength, hardly expands when heated and is easy to form. Together with you, we test the potential of new materials right up to the prototype that is to provide the proof. This service is free of charge for you. The aim is to use new materials or even new production processes.

Our
Services

Network

Our prime concern is the networking of the players in the field of high-performance fibre composites within Switzerland. We enable this networking through events such as working group meetings, workshops, conferences, presence at trade fairs as well as through lively exchange between members, management and the board. The connection to the main association Composites United e.V. also facilitates access to the international market.

Events

Composites United Switzerland and our members organise a variety of events on the subject of high-performance fibre composites and attend relevant trade fairs and conferences. The current events in Switzerland are included in our calendar.

Training and advanced training

Some of our members offer advanced training events in the area of high-performance fibre composites. These are included in the training programme of Composites United e.V. (CU) and also in our calendar. In future, Composites United Switzerland is planning to take on an active role with relevant partners for the training and advanced training of professional people and engineers, in order to significantly improve the offer in these areas in Switzerland.

Projects

Composites United Switzerland is the ideal platform for implementing your project ideas in collaborative ventures such as Innosuisse projects or EU projects. If you have project or product ideas in the area of high-performance fibre composites and are searching for suitable partners from industry, universities or research institutes do not hesitate to contact our office. We will help you find the appropriate project partner for you from our members.

Application process

WE ACCOMPANY FUNDING APPLICATIONS

Composites United Leichtbau-Forschung gGmbH (CU-LF) supports companies and research institutions in the technical and administrative process as well as in the administration of innovation projects. From the idea through the various application steps to the conclusion, funding applications can be accompanied within the framework of Industrial Cooperative Research (IGF).

The funding of IGF projects aims to compensate for the structural disadvantages of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the field of research and development (R&D). Due to their small size, these companies are often unable to finance research contracts with external research institutions or to maintain their own research departments.

Under the IGF, SMEs can solve their common problems through joint research activities conducted primarily by universities and non-profit business-related research institutions. This is particularly efficient, because it allows similar research needs to be bundled in a pre-competitive manner and risks to be shared. Furthermore, this program enables SMEs to benefit from research results that each would not have been able to achieve on its own.

Eligible for funding are scientific and technical research projects that are cross-company in nature, advance new findings and further developments related to fiber composites, and can bring economic benefits to SMEs in particular. Applications for research projects must include proposals for transfer to industry, statements on feasibility and economic significance.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

In accordance with AiF statutes, the initial grant recipient is always the CU-LF. Through on-lending and bilateral agreements, it is possible to use legally independent, non-profit research institutions as final recipients, provided that

  1. these research institutions grant the CU-LF the necessary rights to carry out a project in accordance with its duties,
  2. these research institutions have the scientific qualifications required to work on the respective project, and
  3. have the necessary administration for the intended use of the funds.

HOW TO APPLY?

The project selection procedure of the CU-LF has two stages and is not limited in time. It consists of an idea phase and an application phase. After successfully passing the application phase, the CU-LF submits the project proposal to the AiF. It is recommended to contact the contact person at CU-LF before submitting an idea paper.

Project proposals can be submitted open-ended as an idea paper to the contact person at the CU-LF via e-mail as a reviewable PDF. For this purpose, the template including its sub-items under the following link should be used.

As a rule, the entire idea paper should not exceed five pages.

The received idea papers will be evaluated according to the following criteria, among others:

  1. Interplay between the objective of the project and the objective of the CU-LF,
  2. Relevance for directly/indirectly involved SMEs,
  3. Relevance to the technology,
  4. Possibility of exploitation,
  5. coherence of the budget,
  6. composition of the project advisory committee (PA).

The result of the evaluation is usually communicated to the applicants by e-mail within eight weeks after submission. In total, the average duration from submission of the first idea to project start is 12 months.
