Linked Projects

SoftDREAM is an ambitious project elevating European Synergies.



The goal of MANUELA is the development and realization of a metal Additive Manufacturing pilot line service covering the full AM development cycle including simulation, robust AM manufacturing and on-line process control, characterization, real-time feedback, post-treatment, AM qualification protocols and associated business model.

The activity started on the 01/10/2018, will end on the 30/09/2022 and is funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and Innovation programme coordinated by Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden).

The MANUELA consortium is globally unique and is constituted of: Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), CSEM Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (Switzerland), Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (Germany), RISE Research Institutes of Sweden (Sweden), Cardiff University (UK), Polytechnic of Turin (Italy), HÖGANÄS (Sweden), Electro Optical Systems (FINLAND), ABB (Sweden), Osai Automation system (Italy), Federal Institute of Metrology METAS (Switzerland), MSC Software (Germany), Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery (Sweden), Qioptiq Limited (UK), Biomedical Engineering (Slovakia), Enel Produzione (Italy), O.E.B. (Italy), Stiftelsen Chalmers Industriteknik (Sweden), AMIRES (Czech Republik) and Ruag Slip Rings (Switzeland).

HINDCON project (Hybrid INDustrial CONstruction) aims to adapt manufacturing technologies to the construction sector, advancing towards industrialization and overcoming the limitations of actual approach for introducing Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing in construction activities.

The activity scheduled from 15/09/2016 to 15/09/2019 was funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and Innovation programme coordinated by VIAS (Spain).

The consortium created for the implementation of the HINDCON project involves 12 leading companies in their respective fields: VIAS (Spain), LafargeHolcim (Switzerland), SIEMENS CT (Romania), Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA (Germany), Centre CIM Fundación Privada (Spain), ESTIA Advanced Industrial Technologies Superior School (France), University of Patras Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems & Automation (Greece), Stiftelsen SINTEF (Norway), The Institute of Construction Sciences “Eduardo Torroja” (Spain), Atanga Sistemas y Servicios (Spain), XtreeE (France) and 2.-0 LCA consultants (Denmark).


Composites offer solutions for lighter and greener transport vehicles but also include challenges in manufacturing to avoid distortions. The DADIYSO COMP project aims to develop new methods to predict and prevent cure induced distortion with the help of advanced numerical tools for finite element analysis of the curing process.

The activity from 01/09/2016 to 30/06/2019 was funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and Innovation programme with on partner: RISE Research Institutes of Sweden (Sweden).

The main objective of the project is to make the different technological centers, universities, major companies and PMEs on both sides of the French and Spain border collaborate together, with the aim of producing high value-added parts trough additive manufacturing processes. This project approaches mainly the challenges and needs in relation to economy, employment, knowledge and innovation in the POCTEFA territory.

The activity scheduled from 01/07/2016 to 31/06/2019 was funded by the European Programme POCTEFA 2014-2020 and coordinated by Tecnalia (Spain).

The consortium is constituted of: Tecnalia (Spain), ESTIA Advanced Industrial Technologies Superior School (France), AKIRA (France), Price Induction (France), Ventana (France), Mizar (Spain), Aernnova (Spain) and UPV / EHU University of the Basque Country (Spain).
