The project APPOLO, currently active in the Seventh Framework programme, launches an Open Call for assessment experiments with new laser processing equipment for emerging manufacturing technologies based on ultra-short pulse (sub-ns). The about two year running experiments aim at validation of the technologies needed for large and global markets. The equipment should be tested for the selected technological process in close-to industrial environment using the assessment service of laser application laboratories around Europe joined to APPOLO HUB. Validation will be performed in close collaboration between equipment supplier, end-user and an application laboratory connected to the APPOLO HUB. The new laser assessment experiments should provide business relevant technical investigations and demonstrate applicability of the new equipment for industrial applications.

focuses on emerging innovative laser technologies and processes, which need
to be customised, tested and validated :
Customized – service of application labs for trials;
Tested – experiments at variable conditions;
Validated – reliability and process quality assessment in the close-to-manufacturing
exploits the unique combination of distributed knowledge in
academic application labs,
system integrators and
to enable the development of innovative processes, products and machineries for
industrial laser material processing applications.

APPOLO consortium is looking for new assessment experiments with new equipment for laser-based
manufacturing in the technologies going to large markets with global end-users & integrators.
CALL FOR ASSESSMENT EXPERIMENTS IN LASER-BASED MANUFACTURING
1.2 MEur of the EC funding is available for new partners within the APPOLO Open call
The consortium expect to select approximate 6 proposals for new assessment experiments with a
budget limit of 200 000 Euro per proposal for the new partners.
Each proposal must include at least two new partners: equipment supplier (preferable SME) and end-
user for the laser technology, where the equipment of the supplier can be applied.
The proposal consortium must include at least one of the laser application laboratory from existing
APPOLO consortium (member of APPOLO HUB) to provide the equipment/technology assessment
Additional partners – equipment suppliers and end-users - selected by Competitive call will require
assessment service from the existing consortium partners. Therefore, indicatively 20% of the budget in
addition will be distributed to the existing partners that will provide the service depending on the selected
proposals due to their expertise and infrastructure for performing the new assessment projects. Budget
for existing APPOLO partners can be up to 20% of that for the new partners (40 000 Euro per
Evaluation of the proposals will be performed by independent experts.
The selected partners will assess the grant agreement with EC and APPOLO consortium agreement.
Purpose of the Call
