AM HORIZON EUROPE TOPICS: multi-material components
Functional multi-material components and structures (RIA)
TOPIC ID: HORIZON-CL4-2022-RESILIENCE-01-12
Projects are expected to contribute to the following outcomes:
- Contribute to energy efficiency, increase competitiveness of new multi-materials items and multi-functional materials and products for a wide range of applications in the additive manufacturing industries and in specific industrial sectors e.g. transport including aeronautic, and maritime, consumer customised goods, communications, biomaterials, health and energy;
- Develop optimised structures in terms of operational performance and weight with a goal of reducing weight by 50% compared to traditional designs;
- Reduced lead-time of multimaterial products of 20% compared to today's design of multimaterial products that creates an increased competitiveness for the EU's industry;
- Strengthening of the EU's manufacturing industry through the intensive implementation of innovative and unconventional technologies along the EU's manufacturing value chain;
- Combine materials with high uniformity and with high mobility in industrial quantities with high reproducible quality;
- Increase of the product performance by at least 30% whilst retaining the product price;
- Dissemination of the challenges and benefits of functional multi-material components and structures in the relevant industrial sectors.
Scope: By combining several materials, proposals should advance the state of the art through the development of ready assembled multifunctional devices. The role of new development in additive manufacturing processes with dissimilar materials will be of importance.
