The partners of the Horizon 2020 project AMable have launched a new call for companies that are looking to experiment with additive manufacturing (AM).

The AMable consortium, which aims to accelerate the uptake of AM among SMEs and mid-caps from the European Union, is looking for innovative proposals for functional products that need AM to come alive.

‘AMable is seeking challenging ideas with a clear business vision which can be supported via a series of hands-on development sessions,’ said TWI, one of the project partners.

The knowledge and support of the partners, which in addition to TWI include entities such as MTC, Fraunhofer ILT, and the European Welding Federation, will be available to participants from the design through to the manufacture of their product. The project will also offer financial and business development support to help companies take up AM, with a focus on upskilling employees in AM design, technology development, skills and education.

The submission deadline for proposals, which must have an estimated budget of €450,000, is 1 November. Applicants must be either an SME or a mid-cap from the European Union.
