EU Funding of 3 Million Euro to Support Kordsa and Sabancı University Joint Project
The Composite Technologies Center of Excellence, jointly established by Kordsa and Sabancı University, is positioned as a technology hub that brings together R&D, innovation and production under one roof in composite technologies. The Directional Composites Through Manufacturing Innovation (DiCoMi) project, in which the Composite Technologies Center of Excellence is involved, has obtained 3 million Euro in funding from the European Union.
As a reflection of its vision to reinforce life, Kordsa has embarked on a joint venture with Sabancı University. Kordsa and Sabancı University will carry out the project within the Composite Technologies Center of Excellence, which has been officially registered as an R&D Center by the Turkish Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology and is both a pioneer in Turkey and an important example in the world with its academy-industry collaborative business model. The Directional Composites Through Manufacturing Innovation (DiCoMi) project will be run by a joint consortium that includes Kordsa and Sabancı University and is supported by the European Union. Within the scope of this project, which will strengthen Kordsa's global reinforcer position, systems, software and material development will be carried out in order to produce composite materials with 3D printer technology. The DiCoMi project, which will last 2 years, will enable both domestic and foreign qualified personnel to be exchanged between EU member countries and associated non-EU countries. The DiCoMi project will be carried out with the participation of 16 project partners from 11 countries under the Horizon 2020 program.
