What is the AM-platform?

The AM-platform is a free of charge virtual central European area for all subject related to Additive Manufacturing (hereafter named AM)

The objective of the AM-platform is to contribute to a coherent strategy, understanding, development, dissemination and exploitation of AM.

AM is fragmented. Lots of organizations are working or doing research in this area but there is no coherent strategy and several interpret the subject differently. There is no central organization or place for peoples to for instance ask questions, to start a discussion, to find expertise, or to up- or download an interesting paper or article.

This platform helps to achieve the Lisbon & Gothenburg objectives as defined by the EC (to become the most dynamic and most competitive knowledge-based economy by 2010 and achieving sustainability by 2030).

The AM-platform is active since 2007 (formerly as the RM-platform)

The coming Research and Innovation Programme: HORIZON EUROPE

The European Commission is making ambitious yet realistic proposals for a modern EU budget. It is time for an EU budget that reflects rapid developments in innovation, the economy, the environment and geopolitics, amongst others. The Commission is putting forward modern, clearer and simpler EU financial rules that ensure the EU budget delivers on the issues that matter to Europeans.

Horizon Europe, with a budget of €97.6 billion, is the biggest ever research and innovation funding programme. It is designed around three pillars:

-Open Science Pillar: Building on the success of the European Research Council, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and the Research Infrastructures, the pillar adds more resources for projects with higher impacts. The projects are selected through a "bottom-up" approach, are defined and driven by researchers and networks and are evaluated on the sole criterion of excellence. The goal is to nurture innovation and entrepreneurship in education across Europe to provide the skills and competences needed to make Europe more competitive on a global scale.

-Global Challenges pillar: It is built on clusters that aim at exploiting European strengths and assets by generating new knowledge and translating it into useful innovations, developing and applying digital and key enabling technologies along with a new mission approach. This will further ensure that Research & Innovation activities support EU policy priorities in areas such as the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, health, food and natural resources, resilience and security, climate, energy and mobility to secure a low-carbon, circular and climate-resilient society, industrial competitiveness and other societal challenges. Industrial leadership will be prominent within the pillar and through the programme as whole.

 -Open Innovation pillar: This new pillar will offer a one-stop shop for high potential innovators, aiming to put Europe at the forefront of market-creating innovation through a "bottom-up" approach. It will develop future breakthrough technologies and attract innovative companies with potential for scaling up at international/European levels. It will offer fast, flexible grants and market-based instruments with private investors while ensuring that support close to the market activities does not unduly distort competition between innovators. These objectives will be pursued through the creation of a European Innovation Council.

Save the date: AM Stakeholder Workshop-Aachen March 20th 2018

AMable , AM-Motion , ADMIRE and CLLAIM projects have joined forces to address Additive Manufacturing challenges at European level and would like to invite the AM community to an AM workshop on data and skills in Aachen.

 The one day session will address the following topics:

  •  Extension of file formats (AMable)

-which are the most important AM requirements for file formats and digital storage

-which file formats are most promising with respect to user acceptance and extensibility

  • Connectivity of AM machines (AMable)

-which connections do AM machines need to connect to industrial shop floor environments

-which protocols need to be implemented to integrate AM machines into production environments

  • Skills and Education for AM processes (AM-Motion, ADMIRE and CLLAIM)

-which results from the AM Motion surveys can be used to drive future skills development

-which level of education needs to be addressed today to avoid shortages in skilled personnel in the near future

-which curricula need to be developed and which is needed infrastructure to support skills development

Free workshop. Please register here
