Unique Materials for Advanced Aerospace Applications


The concept of integrated knowledge centre UMA3 (Unique Materials for Advanced Aerospace Applications) is based on creation a value chain of knowledge of research entities in the scope of powder metallurgy process, additive manufacturing, surface technology: coatings and fully 3D investigations. In this period of disruptions when innovation is redefining future success of organizations, it is extremely important to provide a coherent network, allowing for transnational cooperation for researchers and industry. The project members join forces to develop new material systems and create new solutions, while using their competencies (knowledge, human resources, infrastructures) and cooperating in synergistic. The multi-step process of the project (from theoretical elaboration and experimental engineering to computational modelling) will remarkably contribute to existing know-how and concept-driven, market-based innovation and scientific & research progress as well. Knowledge transfer between partners is realized on each topic, led by an internationally recognized researcher. The implementation of the UMA3 is linked to the Regional Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3) for Advanced Vehicle and Machine Engineering Technologies and Intelligent Technologies for Research and Development of Special Materials at county level. The implementation of the project is fitted on Institution Development Plan of the University of Miskolc in the framework of Centre for Excellence of Advanced Materials and Technologies and carried out by Special Materials Scientific Workshop: in Modern materials, Nanotechnology, Aerospace Applications topic.
