Innovative material design and advanced manufacturing provide large opportunities for SMEs. New materials such as composites can make their way to a wide array of sectors like transportation, especially automotive, building and infrastructure, consumer products and machine tool industry. At the same time, such innovation poses risks to SMEs. They should invest in expertise, skills, human resources, demonstrations and testing.
AACOMA will support advanced composite manufacturing in close cooperation with companies and research institutes. To demonstrate feasibility, quality and productivity, it will use advanced technologies in material’s systems development and integrative lightweight manufacturing.
