The project will be implemented by a consortium consisting of clusters and universities from the following countries: Germany (MERGE Cluster of Excellence - Project Leader), the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Belgium.
The aim of the project is to establish a European cluster partnership dealing with issues of lightweight construction. The project consists of two phases. In the first phase (up to 2016) the international cooperation strategy will be prepared and three research topics, which will be implemented in the second phase (2017-2019), will be developed.
Moreover, within the consortium some other research topics will be developed, which will be the basis for the preparation of project proposals to obtain funding from the EU (international projects such as Horizon 2020, CORNET, etc.).
The first visit of the project partners in Bydgoszcz is planned for the turn of April and May 2016.
