Description

Expression of interest in joining a consortium applying for the KIC call: Added-value manufacturing.

Danish Advanced Manufactoring Research Center (DAMRC) would like to join a consortium responding to the EIT’s 2018 call for Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) for Added-value manufacturing, call-deadline July 12.

DAMRC are experts in integrating and accelerating the uptake of research and innovations into the metal working industry, and in mediating between higher education, research and businesses. The Danish metal machining industry formed DAMRC in 2010 for the benefit of businesses. This guarantee very close collaboration with companies and thereby a very deep understanding of the challenges they are facing in daily production. Moreover, we, at DAMRC, hold the Gold Label of European Cluster Excellence Initiative for our cluster management.

We are placed in the manufacturing power-region in Denmark and with a strong international network rooted in the Nordic countries; DAMRC is ideally placed to ensure the KIC a noticeable presence in the region.

 

Description of the organisation:

Business activities, type and size of organization:

DAMRC is a non-profit research and development center for advanced manufacturing technologies and materials partly financed by member fees and partly from project funding from various foundations. DAMRC is developing and transforming the latest knowledge into practical solutions in close cooperation with universities for the benefit of the global competitiveness of the Danish industrial companies.  The setup of the DAMRC allows the center to benefit from the broad span of competences within the group of DAMRC-Partners from the 78 members including manufacturing companies, machine-, tools- and auxiliaries suppliers. For the DAMRC this means access to a continuously expanding knowledge and competence base.

Involvement and Qualification in international engagement:

DAMRC has as coordinator on a FP7 project obtained great experience in working on international projects. Due to the concept of the DAMRC business, DAMRC  has great expereince in approaching companies with know-how and possibility to help implementing new techonologies and strategiees to optimize production
