Close The GAp
The mission of the AM-TTC initiative is to close the gap between lab scale research and industrial applications. The initiative aims to build the competences and facilities that are currently missing to upscale and transfer new manufacturing technologies from science into industry.
along Value Chains
The initiative will foster and facilitate the collaboration of all players along value and supply chains. In the technology transfer centers, raw material and equipment manufacturers as well as production companies can use state-of-the-art pilot plants and facilities to jointly develop the next generation of materials, manufacturing technologies and products.
As the technology transfer centers will be positioned between public research organizations and industrial companies, the centers will be established as public-private partnerships where both - the public domain as well as the private sector - fund the buildup and the operation of these centers.
On this web site, you will find information about the association "AM-TTC Alliance" which is the governing body of the inititative, information about how to become a member of the association, information about the application process to become a technology transfer center of the AM-TTC Alliance as well as information about planned or already established centers and their consortia of partners from science and industry.
