Unique Materials for Advanced Aerospace Applications

Project description

Cooperation towards market-based innovations for advanced aerospace applications

Researchers and industry are coming together under the EU-funded UMA3 project to develop new material systems for aerospace applications. Undertaking the entire process, from theoretical elaboration to experimental engineering, the project will contribute to market-based innovations. Specifically, UMA3 will build a value chain consisting of research institutions that are involved in studies on powder metallurgy processes, additive manufacturing, surface technology (coatings) and fully 3D investigations. It will focus on new materials and solutions based on cooperative knowledge, common resources and synergy. The implementation of the project is part of the Institution Development Plan of the University of Miskolc, in the framework of the Centre of Excellence for Advanced Materials and Technologies.


The concept of integrated knowledge centre UMA3 (Unique Materials for Advanced Aerospace Applications) is based on creation a value chain of knowledge of research entities in the scope of powder metallurgy process, additive manufacturing, surface technology (coatings) and fully 3D investigations. In this period of disruptions when innovation is redefining future success of organizations, it is extremely important to provide a coherent network, allowing for transnational cooperation for researchers and industry. The project members join forces to develop new material systems and create new solutions, while using their competencies (knowledge, human resources, infrastructures) and cooperating in synergistic. The multi-step process of the project (from theoretical elaboration and experimental engineering to computational modelling) will remarkably contribute to existing know-how and concept-driven, market-based innovation and scientific & research progress as well. Knowledge transfer between partners is realized on each topic, led by an internationally recognized researcher. The implementation of the UMA3 is linked to the Regional Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3) for Advanced Vehicle and Machine Engineering Technologies and Intelligent Technologies for Research and Development of Special Materials at county level. The implementation of the project is fitted on Institution Development Plan of the University of Miskolc in the framework of Centre for Excellence of Advanced Materials and Technologies and carried out by Special Materials Scientific Workshop: in Modern materials, Nanotechnology, Aerospace Applications topic.
