Objectives

Global trends are forcing industry to manufacture lighter, safer, more environmentally friendly, more performant and cheaper products: the manufacturing systems engineering sector is aiming at better performing machine components.

Impact

Due to its excellent thermal and electrical properties, copper is the 3rd most frequently used raw material in the world. JOIN’EM directly aims at decreasing the consumption of this high cost material by partially substituting it with aluminium.

Implementation

JOIN’EM is oriented towards an integrated data exchange, with 6 mainly technical and 3 additional more organisationally-oriented work packages focussing on implementation, dissemination, exploitation, and project management.
