As a part of the AMULET project, we are pleased to announce the results of the second open call as part of the project entitled: “Advanced Materials & Manufacturing United for LightWeight” – AMULET.

The AMULET consortium received 31 applications and selected 18 for funding. Those 18 projects comprise SMEs from the building, aerospace&aeronautics, energy and automotive sectors across 16 European Countries.

Two sectors dominated among the applicants and preselected applications concern challenges of aerospace&aeronautics sector – 11 applications (35,5%) and building – 10 applications (32,3%). Less popular were challenges of energy – 5 applications (16,1%)) and automotive – 5 applications (16,1%) sectors.

Among materials selected by preselected applicants one stands out among others: polymer-based composites material constitutes the largest percentage 51,6% of applications (16 applications). The second is light metal alloys – 29% (9 applications). Third material –ceramic matrix composites – gathered 6 applications which is 19,4% of all applications.

European SMEs have been numerous to apply, with 37 submitted applications and selected 31 involving 66 entities from 16 countries: 3 countries stand out among others – Italy (15 applicants) as one of the top source countries, then Spain (11 applicants) and Greece (8 applicants).
