AMITIE: to make the University of Limoges the undisputed European leader in ceramic materials
AMITIE – the aim: to develop additive manufacturing technologies suitable for ceramic materials
The SPCTS (UMR CNRS / University of Limoges) has obtained a European project H2020-MSCA-RISE* known as AMITIE, or Additive Manufacturing Initiative for Transnational Innovation in Europe, worth €900,000 and lasting 48 months.
The AMITIE project is centred on the development of additive manufacturing technologies (that is, those that use 3D printing) suitable for ceramic products, principally in the various activity sectors that are information and communication technology, energy, transportation and biomaterials. It will make the University of Limoges the undisputed European leader in ceramic materials.
The project includes 18 partners, 7 of them industrial, from six European countries and a third party country:
10 academic partners;
- The National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon (FR),
- The University of Valenciennes Haut-Cambresis (FR),
- The University of Erlangen (DE),
- The BAM Federal University for Research and Standardisation of Materials (DE),
- The University of Padua (IT),
- The Polytechnic Institute of Turin (IT),
- Imperial College London (GB),
- The Polytechnic University of Catalonia (ES),
- The Belgium Ceramic Research Centre (BE),
- Another academic partner not in the European Zone, the Mohammadia School of Engineers in Rabat, Morocco, is also involved in the project.
*The RISE programme aims to encourage international and intersectorial collaborations through exchanges of research and innovation personnel and the sharing of knowledge and ideas for research with the market (and vice versa) for the advancement of science and the development of innovation.
