Composite materials can be manufactured into almost any shape, allowing great design flexibility. The opportunity to select the constituents and tailoring them to obtain the required properties make them very attractive to many industries. Safer, lighter and environmentally friendly through material savings and the use of bio-based materials leads to reductions of the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
AACOMA is a 3-year longing Interreg-funded cross-border project in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine and is carried out by seven partners: Centexbel (BE), University of Liège (BE), Sirris (BE), Flanders Make (BE), AMIBM of Maastricht University (NL), Fontys University of applied Sciences (NL) and AMAC (DE).
Companies and institutes can benefit from the networking activities organized during virtual or live Roadshows, be a member of the advisory committee or participate in trainings or follow-up workshops on composite demonstrators shown by project partners.
