Registration for Factories of the Future PPP Info Day is Open
Update: 28 July 2015
Registration for the annual ‘Factories of the Future’ PPP Info Day is now open online. The event will take place in the Charlemagne Building (Brussels) on 15 October.
The Info Day is an ideal opportunity to learn more about the 2016/2017 call topics, meet the European Commission project officers and identify potential projects/project partners.
EFFRA will open online brokerage well in advance of the Info Day once the call topics are officially published in September.
There will be a very high level of interest therefore EFFRA strongly recommends that interested people register at the earliest opportunity. The European Commission is responsible for registration and therefore EFFRA members must register directly.

1st official public RepAIR workshop at Euromold 2014
click on image to see it larger
Dear members of AM-Platform,
we would like to invite you to our 1st official public RepAIR workshop at Euromold 2014 in Frankfurt a.M. On the 28th of November we will present an overview of current results of all work packages.
The RepAIR project follows an holistic approach to support the entire supply chain by integrating Additive Manufacturing as a new option for the repair of aircraft parts. The workshop will be structured along a storyline from part lifetime prediction and failure estimation, decision support for MRO, the actual AM technologies to overarching topics like certification. Please find attached the complete programme of the workshop. As a core element of the RepAIR approach, you are kindly invited to explore a first version of our high batch repair solution at the booth of SLM Solution. The RepAIR team will be represented during the whole Euromold fair at the DMRC booth in hall 11, stand C90.
We are looking forward to meet you in Frankfurt and to receive your feedback on our intermediary outcomes and plans for the second project phase! Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of any question or remark.
Eric Klemp, Jens Pottebaum and Rainer Koch
on behalf of the RepAIR team
AM-Platform informal meeting November 27th at Euromold 2014 Frankfurt
Dear AM Platform member,
Many meetings and events are planned the last months of the year: Euromold, Brookerages, national events, ...
Based on this we decided that it would be too busy to organize a full day AM-Platform meeting as we are used to. It is shifted to Spring – Jan – Feb 2015 (details to follow).
However, we want to provide an opportunity to meet with you and discuss new H2020 project ideas, recent developments and trends in AM and beyond.
On behalf of the AM-Platform management board, I kindly invite you to attend the informal AM-Platform meeting which will be held at Euromold in Frankfurt.
We will meet for a chat, drink and snack on Thursday November 27th from 15.00 on at the TNO booth in Hall 11 Stand 132 on Euromold 2014 Frankfurt.
We look forward to meeting you there and exchange latest ideas and news & achievements!
With kind regards on behalf of the AM-Platform,
NB: for organizational purposes, we would appreciate a note on your attendance and possibly dietary needs!

BEST: Brokerage event for the coming H2020 NMBP work programme 2015
BEST is the brokerage event for the coming H2020 NMBP work programme 2015.
It is organized by the European Technology Integrating and Innovation Platform on Nanotechnology NANOfutures with the collaboration of the European Platforms for Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies EUMAT and Manufacturing, MANUFUTURE.
The event will be held at Egmont Palace in
Brussels on November 13rd 2014
and will be opened by the European Commission.
It is for the coming H2020 NMBP work programme 2015 including all the coming topics, also those from PPPs FoF, EeB and Spire ones.
It is free of charge. However, space is limited so attendance is restricted to one person per entity. Subscriber’s selection will be done observing the need for a balanced participation from industries and research entities and the priority to earlier applications. Final acceptances will be sent around october.

The purpose of the Diginova coordinating work is to determine the current status and assess and promote the expected potential of Digital Fabrication for the future of materials research and manufacturing in Europe, taking the Diginova scope as a starting point. We will map key material innovation and application domains, identify key technology challenges and new business opportunities. We will identify and connect main stakeholders through establishment of innovation networks centered around concrete identified business cases, to determine the added value and feasible routes to commercialization.
On YouTube you'll find a 4 min illustration about the idea of Digital Fabrication (in future).
Our findings will result in a Digital Fabrication roadmap describing new business as well as technology drivers, aligned with a map of the most attractive innovative product categories for applications of new materials and processes, derived from a well-founded business perspective. The roadmap will describe the most promising materials and material deposition and modification technologies and will point out the direction for innovation in materials and digital fabrication to transform EU industries from their 20th century analogue roots to their 21st century digital future.
Achieving the ambitions of the Diginova project will
- Create a paradigm shift in manufacturing that will open up huge opportunities for future growth for manufacturing and new material developement in Europe.
- Deliver a roadmap for Digital Fabrication drafted by the project partners together with all identified key actors. This will provide a meaningful framework and guideline for innovation for all actors in the innovation value chain.
- Help to eliminate compromises that reduce the functionalities of new advanced materials thereby maximising their potential value and shortening the time from lab to market.
- Lower barriers for adoption and application of advanced new materials leading to faster innovation cycles.
- Build better coordination networks of three key groups of stakeholders, centred around well described and widly recognized key application focus areas: materials developers, manufacturing equipment developers and application developers/owners.
