Thematic in focus 2021

SWII 2021 focuses on Additive Manufacturing & Lightweight Technologies and matches the R&D heaviest Swiss & Swedish MNEs, SMEs & academia with the goal to launch joint market-oriented R&D projects.

Subtopics within Additive Manufacturing & Lightweight Technologies that are of interest for joint innovation projects are:


  • Sustainability (Circular value chains, Sustainable production processes, Life cycle perspective on lightweight design and product development)
  • Multifunctionality (Multiple functions of materials, components and systems, Innovative functions, Improved properties
  • Digitalization of production (Engineering and supply chain, More efficient development methods, Reduction of material and processing costs, High volume production of mixed material design)


  • Geometry and design optimization
  • Structural orientation, surface texture, design methods for additive manufacturing (guidelines, standards, software support), design for x (sustainability, manufacturing, lightweight, robustness…)
  • Digitization and business model development
  • Value chain optimization, competence transfer, process productivity optimization (digitalization, process simulation, geometry simulation, path planning), spare parts and repair
  • Manufacturing and post process development
  • Tooling, tailored microstructures, hybrid processes, process/quality control/ monitoring and verification, automation, post-manufacturing treatment, joining, set-up and process time minimization, support material reduction, safety
  • Metal powder development for additive manufacturing
  • Alloys for powder manufacturing, materials characterization and properties, standardization, amorphous metals
  • Non-Metallic additive manufacturing
  • Ceramics (glass, crystals…), polymers, bio-materials, reinforcements

More sub-thematic are currently added by the partners and are to be included in the call for co-funding
