An Open Innovation Ecosystem for upscaling production processes of lightweight metal alloys composites

Project description

Lightweight metal alloys: shortening their path to commercial availability

Over the last two decades, a high number of research projects have focussed on the development of new lightweight metal alloys for industrial applications. However, a limited number of products have reached the market end users. Lack of funding for further development and upscaling and the unwillingness of end users to adopt non-validated and non-standardised technologies in their processes are some of the reasons that account for this phenomenon known as 'valley of death'. The EU-funded LightMe project aims to overcome these barriers. To that end, it will offer an open innovation ecosystem that will help technologies with a high level of maturity reach a technology readiness level (TRL) of 7.
