Interreg Euregio Meuse-Rhine is a potential hot-spot for the further development of advanced material and process technologies.
Technical Centers and Institutes around Aachen/Germany, Liège/Belgium and Eindhoven/The Netherlands were awarded with the new project AACOMA (Accelerate advanced composite manufacturing).
Innovative material design and advanced manufacturing provide large opportunities for SMEs. The AACOMA project kick-off took place in Aachen at the Campus of the RWTH University of technology in Q1/2020. The aim of the project, which is running for 3 years until 2023 with a budget of €3 million, is to connect SMEs with innovation hot-spots like institutes and technical centers.
7 partners from all 3 regions will carry the project out: the textile research center Centexbel, Gent/Belgium, is the project leader and gets support by University of Liège, Sirris and Flanders Make from Belgium, as well as Fontys University of Applied Science and AMIBM of Maastrich University in the Netherlands and AMAC in Germany.
