    A2M2TECH (Doctoral Programme in Advanced Materials&Advanced Manufacturing Technologies) is an excellence doctoral training programme presented by Gazi University (GU) in Turkey as beneficiary and main hosting organisation through the Additive Manufacturing Technology Application and Research Center (EKTAM), the National Center of Excellence for AM. The programme is completed with the participation of other 3 entities as Partner Organisations recruiting fellows: Middle East Technical University, İstanbul Technical University and İzmir Institute of Technology. During the 60 months of duration of A2M2TECH, one single Open Call will be launched for the recruitment of 22 early-stage researchers (ESRs). Excellence in research&education Will be achieved through a complete research&training programme combining cutting-edge multidisciplinary topics in the AM field with a wide range of research&non-research oriented skills, thus impacting on the future career perspectives of the fellows and aligning the programme objectives and results with EU strategies and objectives regarding human resources, research&innovation. A2M2TECH will establish an open, transparent and merit-based procedure for the recruitment with the aim of providing the next-generation of skilled scientists in the bourgeoning fields of Advanced Manufacturing, Advanced Materials&Additive Manufacturing. All the participating organisations in the programme have an outstanding track-record in terms of recruitment and training of doctoral researchers and they all support the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, thus ensuring the best possible conditions to enhance the potential and future career perspectives for the recruited researchers. In addition, recruited fellows will be provided with the opportunity to carry out secondments in several national&international host institutions with a particular focus on the intersectoral University-Industry collaboration.

    Preterm births are the major cause of infant mortality in both developed and developing worldwide countries and one of the main concerns of public health systems. Very low birth weight infants and new-borns who suffer severe acquired diseases, congenital malformations or rare diseases face similar burdens and challenges. Altogether can be referred as “high-risk neonates”. These neonates have to spend long periods at Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) and, even so, they are at risk of developing short- and long-term health problems. This fact provokes suffering (e.g. anxiety, stress or trauma) to high-risk neonates’ parents and stressful situations, including burn-out, to NICU clinical staff. To overcome this, a Family Integrated Care (FICare) model that involves parents as primary caregivers in NICU teams has been recently developed with very promising results. RISEinFAMILY, a 52-months research project, aims to undertake an implementation study of the FICare model to make it suitable to all environments (no matter the country or the NICU) and set it as the new international standard of neonatal and family care. A geographical, social and cultural diverse consortium composed of 12 partners from 4 high- (ES, NL, UK, and CA), 2 middle- (RO and TR) and 1 low-income (ZM) countries will scale-up and adapt the FICare model for the first time in Europe, Africa and Asia. About 2800 infants will be assessed and clinical staff and families from at least 1600 high-risk neonates trained and educated for enrolling in 7 pilots worldwide (5 in non-FICare and 2 in FICare NICUs). Using mixed-methods research, the project will assess the impact of RISEinFAMILY in infants’ health (during NICU admission and after discharge), families and healthcare professionals experience from a psychological perspective and the socio-economic sustainability. Project outcomes will be promoted for stakeholders’ engagement and an appropriate strategy for exploitation of results will be defined.

    DOC-3D-Ceram is an innovative training network that consists of 6 academic, 1 non-profit association and 7 industry (Large companies and SME) participants focused on CERAMICS 3D PRINTING or Ceramics Additive manufacturing applied on medical and aerospace fields. The penetration of 3D-printing processes in the ceramics industry remains low. Technology achievements remain to be done, but research activities remain low. Indeed the additive manufacturing community addresses mostly metallic or polymeric materials, and the ceramics industry lacks skilled researchers likely to exploit academic proofs of concepts to innovations. Thus training is a key challenge to support innovation in the ceramics industry and for the European competitiveness. That is why a European Training Network is the most relevant to the challenge. The training programme created for this project will be sustained after the project by associative networking. Certification and qualification evaluation of early stage researcher on this topic will be created by the consortium with the methodologies developed by NPO partner. The research methodology will be based on multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial collaborations among the project participants. The work packages will solve each VALUE CHAIN needs: (i) Feedstock, (ii) Printer, (iii) Product, (iv) Standardisation. The expected innovations are: (i) Multi-structured and tailored materials feedstocks (ii) Printer specially designed for ceramics (iii) innovative-design ceramics products (iv) standardisation actions. From the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) point of view DOC-3D-Ceram will bridges “the Valley of death” (TRL 3 to 7) from science TRL to commercial TRL. The expected successful outcomes require a joint effort from academic and industry facilitated by the synergetic work plan proposed.
