The ambliFibre Consortium included 11 partners representing a balanced mix of research institutes (Fraunhofer), university (RWTH Aachen, University of Twente) and industrial partners, 1 of which were from industry and 7 were SMEs. These consortium members represent key elements of the supply chain from 6 EC countries (D, UK, NL, IT, ES, DK). All the industrial and in particular the SME partners held fundamental roles within the project work programme in order to develop technologies that can be readily implemented industrially and which bring benefits to the entire European industry and society.
The consortium included complementary knowledge and skills (special purpose machine building, novel laser system technology, process engineering, process & machine simulation, product engineering, environmental science, etc.) that cannot be found in a single EU state. The combined efforts of these partners ensured the realisation of the laid out objectives within ambliFibre.
