The first issue of the ELCA newsletter features important updates on the future projects of the network, news on the platform updates and much more.
With the first release of its newsletter, ELCA would like to thank the network and the
individuals who have contributed to ELCA’s immense growth today.
One of the prominent elements of the newsletter is an exclusive interview with Achilleas Stalios, Phd – Head of Sector, Advanced Materials, Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA):
“Lightweight materials are of paramount importance in view of the major EU policy lines of CO₂ reduction, energy savings via natural resource preservation and recyclability.”
Achilleas Stalios reaffirms how lightweight materials are of paramount importance in view of the major EU policy lines of CO₂ reduction, energy savings via natural resource preservation and recyclability.
But there’s more: the newsletter includes an interview with Federico Capucci, CLUST-ER MECH Manager: “ELCA represents a qualified and highly operational observatory for gathering information and opportunities.”
Federico talks about how important it is for the CLUST-ER MECH to be part of the ELCA network, and how it can generate added value across the industries involved in the project.
The Elca Network
The ELCA network has grown immensely since its initial inception back in 2013, and its further consolidation in 2018. With this first ELCA Newsletter, Elca showcases the distinguished group of individuals who represent the ELCA Network, and continuously bring innovative ideas and solutions to enhance the future of lightweighting technologies in Europe.
Elca’s Future Projects
This period brought new projects to the forefront of the lightweight industry with the RIGHTWEIGHT, COSME ELCA and AMULET projects all being developed. Both the RIGHTWEIGHT and COSME ELCA are already in progress; the AMULET project was launched on September 1st this year.
The COSME-ELCA consortium aims to foster the use of European lightweight products, technologies and services in third countries markets through the development of a joint strategy toward international development. Five value chain stages in 4 mobility sectors are considered: aerospace & aeronautics, automotive, rail and maritime.
The Advanced Materials & Manufacturing United for LightwEighT (AMULET) project is a HORIZON 2020 project that aims to promote innovation challenges that will financially support the Small-Medium Enterprises joining the initiative across four sectors: automotive, aerospace and aeronautics, energy, and building.
