GALACTICA project aims to support the creation of new industrial value chains around textile and aerospace sectors based on advanced manufacturing.The vision is to drive cross-sectoral innovation to boost new market opportunities, revenues and improve productivity.
GALACTICA will facilitate the uptake of advanced manufacturing technologies as part of the digital transition of the textile and aerospace industries. The project has a total budget of 5 M€ from which 4M€ are directly targeted to support SMEs to innovate with diverse mechanisms including 3M€ financial support through two open calls for proposals, hackathons and travel grants. The first call for proposals will be launched in March 2021 and the second one in January 2022.
The project will also organize a set of activities prior to each call for proposals to facilitate generation of project ideas such as workshops, matchmakings and online webinars. Due to the current situation, the first round of activities will be held mostly virtually.
