AMULET – Advanced Materials & Manufacturing Technologies United for LightwEighT
To reach the ambitious goal of a decarbonized and efficient circular economy, lightweight construction was identified to play a key role. Thereby, the application of advanced lightweight materials such as polymer-based composites, ceramic matrix composites and light metal alloys has already enabled significant weight reductions while increasing performance over the past decades. However, the application potential of advanced lightweight materials that has been achieved scientifically and technically has not yet been fully exploited by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The Advanced Materials & manufacturing United for LightwEighT (AMULET) project is a HORIZON 2020 project that aims to exploit the innovation potential of SMEs through a cross-sectoral, funded knowledge exchange. The goal of AMULET is to create new value chains by fostering the penetration of advanced lightweight materials in different fields through cross-regional and cross-sectoral knowledge exchange in four sectors: automotive, aerospace and aeronautics, energy, and building.
R&D demonstration projects targeting current sectorial challenges will be developed to reach TRL7, following a competitive-based approach. SMEs participating in the project will receive technical training support and business-to-business coaching for accelerating the commercialisation of their innovative solutions.
AMULET will focus on the following three advanced materials: Light metal alloys, Ceramic matrix composites and Polymer-based composites.
And their implementation in four industry sectors: Building, Aerospace & Aeronautics, Energy and Automotive.
