ModuLase at its 24th month meeting in Cambridge (UK)

This three-year project is now running for 2 years, and the last developments were fine-tuned during its 24th month meeting that took place in September (Cambridge, UK), hosted by the project coordinator, TWI.
The focus of the meeting was on topics such as dissemination, exploitation, training and communication, the assembly and testing of the ModuLase process head, the system and software integration as well as the setup of pilot facilities in industrial environment. Regarding exploitation, commercialisation and marketing/dissemination, a discussion involving all the consortium partners was carried out in order to agree on the actions that needs to be accomplished to have the final Business Plan, considering the objective of having the ModuLase products ready to be sold right after the end of the project.
Additionally, the rest of the topics were addressed with setting deadlines and actions needed to integrate their outcomes.
The ModuLase consortium will gather in a new project meeting at the beginning of March 2019 in Turim, Italy. The meeting will be hosted by the Italian partner, CRF.

MODULASE PROJECT

ModuLase will encompass all stages of the process chain and provide additional flexibility, cost reduction and execution speed without compromising the overall quality, hence providing a better overall performance. By providing the groundwork for a more thorough utilization of laser-based manufacturing, ModuLase will provide a critical tool for the Factories of the Future public-private partnership which sets a vision and outlines routes on its 2014-2020 roadmap towards high added value manufacturing technologies. As result of this vision, the factories of the future will be clean, highly performing, environmental friendly and socially sustainable.

Technology and knowledge transfer are one paramount issue that will also be part of the project, facilitating the collaboration with EU SMEs and large industries, and enabling the rapid deployment and commercialisation of the new technology.

THE HORIZON 2020

The ModuLase project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. H2020–FoF-2016- 723945-ModuLase. The project is an initiative of the Photonics and Factories of the Future Public Private Partnerships’

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness.
