The strategic objective of the MANUNET call for proposals is to foster the competitiveness of Europe’s Manufacturing Industry by co-funding manufacturing research projects performed by enterprises (preferably SMEs) and their strategic partners.

The funding objectives of the call are transnational application oriented and high risk R&D projects related to Manufacturing. The project proposals must clearly demonstrate:

  • Transnational, collaborative R&D with a significant degree of innovation and scientific and technical risk
  • Market orientation
  • Application and practical use of manufacturing technologies
  • Expertise of the project partners in their respective fields of competence
  • Added value through transnational cooperation
  • Scale of impact and market positioning of the applicant

MANUNET call includes all fields in Manufacturing, structured in the following topics:

  • Knowledge-based engineering, information and communication technologies for manufacturing (industrial robotics, computer-aided engineering and design, automated manufacturing, product lifetime management, etc.)
  • Manufacturing technologies for environmental and energy applications including resource efficiency and recycling.
  • Adaptive manufacturing technologies including processes for removing, joining, adding, forming, consolidating, assembling.
  • New materials for manufacturing (alloys, lubricants, coatings, textile fibres, construction, composites, insulation, etc.). 
  • New manufacturing methods, components and systems (development of demonstrators, devices and equipments, logistic systems, etc.).
  • Other technologies/products related to the manufacturing field

However, the respective regional/national thematic programme focus should also be taken into account.
