Costs and unpredictable defects in final parts and products are preventing complete deployment and adoption of Additive Manufacturing (AM) in the metalworking industries.
The industrial demonstration in a pilot line will show the full potential of metal AM in real manufacturing conditions and it will serve as a flagship example for other stakeholders. Quality aspects to be significantly improved include robustness, stability, repeatability, speed and right-first-time manufacturing.Scope:
Proposals are expected to cover demonstration activities driven by the industrial community.
Activities should start at TRL 5 and achieve TRL 7 at the end of the project.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU between EUR 12 and 15 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
As an exception from General Annex D, the funding rate for eligible costs in grants awarded under this topic will be differentiated: 100% of the eligible costs for beneficiaries and linked third parties that are non-profit legal entities; and 50% of the eligible costs for beneficiaries and linked third parties that are for profit legal entities.Expected Impact:
Relevant indicators and metrics, with baseline values, should be clearly stated in the proposal.Cross-cutting Priorities:
