 Multiscale modelling methods and the software for the analysis of the Micro-FAST process Result title Multiscale modelling methods and the software for the analysis of the Micro-FAST process
 Micro-FAST prototype machine Result description One of the key challenges is still, however, manufacture of multi-materials products, especially the products/parts used in extreme conditions.
 Manufacturing the products of the future Taxon title Manufacturing the products of the future
 Advanced manufacturing processes Taxon description The efficiency and sustainability of both the manufacturing of actual and future products is still very much determined by the processes that shape and assemble the components of these products.
