Ultra-short pulse laser manufacturing experiments the focus of European project

Vilnius, Lithuania -The APPOLO project, currently active in the Seventh Framework program of the European Community for research, technological development, and demonstration activities, has launched an open call for assessment experiments with new equipment for emerging manufacturing technologies based on ultra-short pulse lasers (sub-nanosecond).

The two-year running experiments aim at validation of the technologies needed for large and global markets. The equipment should be tested for the selected technological process in close-to industrial environment using the assessment service of laser application laboratories around Europe joined to APPOLO HUB. Validation will be performed in close collaboration between equipment supplier, end-user and an application laboratory connected to the APPOLO HUB. The new laser assessment experiments should provide business relevant technical investigations and demonstrate applicability of the new equipment for industrial applications.

Approximately six proposals will be selected for funding in this competitive call, including at least two new partners per proposal from equipment supply and end-user sides with clear exploitation plans and one existing partner from APPOLO HUB to perform the equipment/technology assessment. Please note that the Seventh Framework program offers partial funding, not full funding, of research activities.

The call for assessment opens on February 12, 2015, and closes on March 18, 2015. The project will start no earlier than July 2015 and finish no later than August 31, 2017. Total EC funding available for new partners is up to $1.4 million (€1.2 million).
