INNOVATION SUPPORT PROJECTS
The BuSyBee project carried out under the Interreg VA Euregio Meuse-Rhine program is funded by the European Union and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Wallonia, the Belgian and Dutch Limburg Provinces, as well as the project partners.
BuSyBee is a project developed within the framework of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (EMR) with 5 Belgian partners (PIMW, ULiège, Universiteit Hasselt, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, DSP Valley VZW) and 3 Dutch partners (Universiteit Maastricht, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Stichting DSP Valley).
The objective of this project is to transform more innovations into new products and bring them to the market in order to strengthen the commercial activity of SMEs and to have a direct economic impact within the EMR zone.
Universities, research centers and clusters work together to create the right partnership between the company and the research center or academic center and accelerate the development of your products to the demonstrator or laboratory prototype.
The budget allocated by the ERDF and Wallonia funds to the entire portfolio is of the order of € 10 million, including about 3.7 million pieces of equipment.
Sirris, the CRM, ULiège and Cenaero with 3 other partners bring their complementary skills to the project in order to remove the technological barriers to transfer to the industry by responding to industrial needs thanks to existing skills and the potential of additive techniques.
ULiège and CRM are the main promoters of the "Reverse Metallurgy" project which aims to create, in Wallonia, a platform of industrial, technological and scientific excellence in recycling, creating added value and jobs and recognized in international level.
The project is based on a public / private financial partnership and mobilizes 70 million euros, of which 41.5 brought by the Region.
The CRM and Cenaero are with the University of Namur and Materia Nova the partners of the 3D-COATER project which aims to develop and set up a platform for pre-industrial pilot equipment for surface treatments and 3D object coatings, dry, complementary to already existing tools - mainly for the treatment of strips, sheets and flat plates (2D) – in Wallonia.
