PULSATE is glad to share the list of selected beneficiaries of the open call for adopter use cases. Selected projects will start the support program and will receive the grant to assess the feasibility of laser-based technology implementation in their environment.
Most of the winning proposals are related to the green economy and sustainable manufacturing - topics at the heart of the EC's focus.
PULSATE Network is designed and dedicated to boosting the adoption of laser-based advanced and additive manufacturing (LBAAM) technology that will empower the European Manufacturing industry digitalization.
Congratulations to all the winners.
PULSATE Support Program for Adopters Use Cases will start in September 2022 and last for 3 months.
During the program, selected projects will receive:
As part of the drive to promote jobs and growth in the European photonics industry, PULSATE was set up in 2020 with a grant of €7.9 million under the EU's Horizon 2020 program as a four-year project to promote and facilitate the adoption of LBAAM technologies. Details about PULSATE can be found on their Website and Community.
Laser-based advanced and additive manufacturing technologies play an important role in furthering digital production and offer important advantages to the companies that adopt them. However, barriers such as high investment costs, complex technology, and system integration, and lack of awareness hinder their adoption by SMEs. PULSATE aims to mitigate these barriers by creating a Europe-wide network to enable and encourage SMEs to participate in LBAAM innovation and become more globally competitive.
PULSATE has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under Grant Agreements No 951998. It is an initiative of the Photonics Public Private Partnership.
