SAMT SUDOE PROJECT aims at developing links and synergies between enterprises, R&D centres, clusters, higher education and R&D+i governmental & regional institutions to promote new KET in SUDOE space.
Particularly, Additive manufacturing technologies (3D printing) and Advanced Materials will be the project focus in order to boost advanced production systems, nanotechnology and advanced materials in industrial sectors present in SUDOE space such as plastic processors and mould industries.
For the consecution of the project objectives four essential results will be obtained and used in the dissemination of these technologies.
Specialized roadmaps on existing technologies (plastic and mould industries’ techniques) and future KET (AM and advanced materials) will be defined according to industrial needs and requirements.
The setting-up of a transnational collaborative SAMT web Platform will ease the involvement of SMEs in R&D activities and the collaboration among organisations throughout the value chain.
Creation of training material in the form of Open Educational Resources (OER) to foster retention of Knowledge, technological update and development of skilled workforce.
SAMT SUDOE is developed in the framework of the Interreg Sudoe Programme funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The Interreg Sudoe Programme supports regional development in Southwest Europe financing transnational projects.
The Programme promotes transnational cooperation to solve common problems in Southwest Europe, such as low investment in research and development, weak competitiveness of the small and medium-sized enterprises and exposure to climate change and environmental risks.
