SHAPE, the SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe is a pan-European, PRACE-based programme supporting HPC adoption by SMEs. The Programme aims to raise awareness and equip European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities opened up by High Performance Computing (HPC), thus increasing their competitiveness.

 

HPC is a powerful technology that can enable the development of new products or services, reduce time-to-market and cost of R&D or increase quality. The opportunities opened up by HPC are vast and an increasing number of SMEs turn to HPC in order to create new business opportunities.

 

The Programme will help European SMEs overcome barriers to using HPC, such as cost of operation, lack of knowledge and lack of resources. It will facilitate the process of defining a workable solution based on HPC and defining an appropriate business model.

LUBMAT 2018: SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN 5th-6th JUNE 2018

LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.

European Technology Platform
for Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies

EuMaT – European Technology Platform for Advanced Engineering Materials and Technologies has been launched in order to assure optimal involvement of industry and other important stakeholders in the process of establishing of R&D priorities in the area of advanced engineering materials and technologies. EuMaT should improve coherence in existing and forthcoming EU projects, in the field of materials R&D.

 

EuMaT covers all elements of the life cycle of an industrial product, regardless if it is a component, a system or a final good:

  • design, development & qualification of advanced material
  • advanced production, processing and manufacturing
  • material and component testing
  • material selection and optimization
  • advanced modelling on all scales
  • databases and supporting analytical tools
  • life cycle considerations, including impacts, decommissioning, reliability, hazards, risks and recyclability

Main objectives of EuMaT

The main goal of EuMaT is to contribute to the best relation and dialogue between industry, R&D actors and institutions aiming at improving the coordination and synergies at national and European level in the field of Materials R&D.
The primary objective of EuMaT is to produce the Strategic Research Agenda which, with appropriate involvement of industry and other main stakeholders will provide basis for

  • identification of needs and
  • establishing priorities in the area of advanced materials and technologies.

In addition, EuMaT promotes

  • interdisciplinary education and training, and technology transfer and innovation
  • societal considerations in the R&D (e.g. potential impacts on public health, safety, environmental risks)
  • cooperation and initiatives at international level
EuMaT is open to all interested new members accepting EuMaT goals, principles and statutes.

EuMaT Organization of the stakeholders: The pan-European partnership

EuMaT includes members from:

  • Industry (large, medium and small, embracing the whole production and supply chain, including component, equipment and sub-system suppliers, service providers and user industries; those involved in technology transfer; also, industry associations)
  • Public authorities (regulators and policy makers, funding agencies; in the particular notified and licensing bodies)
  • Scientific and Technical Community (apart for education and research also those involved in innovation and interested in the issue of European Innovation Area);
  • Associations and Consortia from other EU projects
  • Financial community (private banks including the EIB, the European Investment Fund EIF, venture capital, etc.; in particular supporting SME’s)
  • Civil society, including users and consumers (involving the also the future customers, e.g. through associations).
