Horizon 2020 is the Research and Innovation programme of the EU over 7 years from 2014 to 2020. This is the EU's main instrument for funding research in Europe. Horizon 2020 is designed to respond to social challenges and and industrial leaderships.
In October 2014 the EC published the Call H2020-NMP-2014-2015 and asked for project proposal for the topic NMP 07_2015: Additive manufacturing for tabletop nanofactories.
DIMAP has been chosen out of 55 proposals to develop novel materials and technologies for 3D printing.
Further funded projects are:
- FAST: Functionally graded Additive Manufacturing (AM) scaffolds by hybrid manufacturing (http://project-fast.eu/en/home)
- Nanotun3D: development of the complete workflow for productin and using a novel nanomodified Ti- based alloy for additive manufacturing in special applications (www.nanotun3d.eu )
