AMULET - HORIZON 2020
The Advanced Materials & Manufacturing United for LightwEighT
Funding opportunity for the innovation of the European lightweighting SMEs
Manufacturing is nowadays striving for a wiser change into a more sustainable future for post-pandemic world. As environmental concerns become increasingly important to consumers, many market sectors are shifting toward greater energy consciousness and sustainability.
The Advanced Materials & Manufacturing United for LightwEighT (AMULET) project aims to benefit from the innovation potential of SMEs that will be creating new value chains by fostering the penetration of advanced lightweight materials in industry. AMULET will focus on the following three advanced materials: light metal alloys, ceramic matrix composites, polymer-based composites and their implementation in four sectors:The AMULET organized 2 Open Calls to enhance this innovation potential of SMEs through cross-sectors and funded knowledge exchange. 1st Open Call was launched on 12th April 2022 and lasted until 20th July 2022! 2nd Open Call was launched on 10th January 2023 and lasted until 27th March 2023!
For this reason, the second Open Call selected a Consortium of minimum 2 and maximum 3 Legal entities including exclusively SMEs to lead Bottom-up projects that address the development and implementation of demonstration activities around technology and systems applicable to the 12 challenge areas. The selected consortia will receive up to 120K€ (60K€ for each SME) and Funding and Business training support.Matchmaking events to build innovative SMEs consortia
The Amulet consortium organized 3 important networking opportunities for SMEs interested in participating in the second Open Call. SMEs were able to participate in three matchmaking events and use the platform to meet other companies to work together on their project.For more information, contact:

European Lightweight Cluster Alliance (ELCA) is a collaborative initiative from which the AMULET project originates that aims to accelerate the adoption of lightweight materials in strategic industries. Mobility is the primary focus of the alliance, but applications in other lightweighting-related sectors are also targeted; including energy, health care, defence and construction. The alliance is creating a unique inclusive business framework for exploring lightweight-driven market opportunities. The main players from established industries and research institutions can collaborate and facilitate activities to put the lightweight technologies into practice.
