AMULET: Funding opportunities for innovation in the European lightweight industry

Manufacturing is nowadays striving for a wiser change into a more sustainable, post-pandemic future. 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, funded under H2020 INNOSUP-1, aims at creating new value chains by fostering the penetration of advanced lightweight materials in industry. AMULET will focus on the following advanced materials: light metal alloys, ceramic matrix and polymer-based composites, and their use in four sectors: building, aerospace & aeronautics, energy and automotive.

Open calls

AMULET will manage 2 open calls to enhance the innovation potential of SMEs through a cross-sector knowledge exchange. 

The first open call has been launched on April 12 and will be open for applications until June 30, 2022, 17.00 CET. The second open call is planned to be launched in the last quarter of 2022.

The first call will be selecting consortia of SMEs with 2, maximum 3 legal entities. The objective is to support bottom-up projects that develop and implement technologies and systems applicable to the 12 challenges. The selected consortia will receive up to €120 000 (€60 000 for each SME) and funding and business training support from the AMULET consortium.

Info days & matchmaking to build innovative SMEs consortia

The AMULET consortium is organising 3 networking events for SMEs interested in participating in the first open call. SMEs will virtually meet other companies to work together on their projects. 

For more information visit the AMULET website and submit your proposal on the application website by 30 June, 17.00 CET.



The AMULET consortium consists of 7 clusters: POLYMERIS (FR) which is the project’s coordinator, Bydgoszcz Industrial Cluster Tool Valley (PL), Advanced Materials Cluster of Catalonia (ES), IMAST (IT), West Hungarian Engineering Cluster (HU), Clust-ER MECH (IT), Moravian-Silesian Automobile Cluster (CZ). 4 Research & Technology Organisations: Chemnitz University of Technology, Jožef Stefan Institute (SI), Flanders Make (BE), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and 2 SMEs: FundingBox (PL) and Bax&Company (ES).
