Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies united for Lightweight
With the support from
Lightweight construction is important for a decarbonised and efficient circular economy. However, SMEs are not yet taking full advantage of the scientifically and technically achieved application potential of advanced lightweight materials. The EU-funded AMULET project aims to promote the penetration of advanced lightweight materials through cross-regional and cross-sectoral knowledge exchange in four sectors:
- The automotive sector;
- The aerospace sector;
- The energy sector;
- The construction sector.
AMULET will unlock the untapped innovation potential for SMEs in the field of lightweight construction and identify new value chains for advanced lightweight materials such as polymer matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites and light metal alloys. SMEs participating in AMULET demonstration projects will receive technical training support and business-to-business coaching for accelerating commercialisation of their innovative solutions.
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 fiber-reinforced polymers, 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 trans-European project AMULET aims to exploit this innovation potential of SMEs through a cross-regional, cross-sectoral, funded knowledge exchange. This will establish new, pan-European value chains for advanced lightweight materials.
