At Interreg Euregio Meuse-Rhine, we fund projects where partners work together across borders. In 2014-2020, we invest EUR 96 million from the European Regional Development Fund in our region. We are a collaboration between 13 regions from Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands. Together, we develop shared solutions to common challenges. This gives Interreg its own, distinct spirit of cooperation: across regions and across borders.
Innovative material design and advanced manufacturing provide large opportunities for SMEs. New materials such as composites can make their way to a wide array of sectors like transportation, especially automotive, building and infrastructure, consumer products and machine tool industry. At the same time, such innovation poses risks to SMEs. They should invest in expertise, skills, human resources, demonstrations and testing.
AACOMA will support advanced composite manufacturing in close cooperation with companies and research institutes. To demonstrate feasibility, quality and productivity, it will use advanced technologies in material's systems development and integrative lightweight manufacturing.
