The WeldGalaxy consortium launched its first round of Open Innovation Calls in March 2020, which closed last month following an overwhelming response from the arc welding community. These proposals were intended for arc welding equipment and consumable suppliers, technology suppliers and/or system integrators, end users including SMEs and Mid-Caps that use arc welding to join materials in their manufacturing process as well as research/non-industrial legal entities that could provide innovative solutions to improve the WeldGalaxy platform in co-operation with the WeldGalaxy partners. As part of the dissemination programme, three webinars were hosted to provide information about the open calls and innovations in welding and technical support.
34 innovative arc welding solutions from 19 European countries were submitted to the 1st WeldGalaxy Open Call, which are currently being evaluated by external welding experts to identify ten winners who will enter our interesting WeldGalaxy training programme!
