The PolyFlip project (Development of a flipped classroom approach for (polymer) engineering study programs with the use of innovative ICT tools) is one of the Erasmus + projects, key action 2 (KA2) - "Project cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices".

Flipped Practical Courses VIA Triple learning Environments which developed by Triple Experts teams who are empowered through Triple Enhance programs 

International cooperation - COST action CA 18220 - European Network of FURan based chemicals and materials FOR Sustainable development (FUR4Sustain). (European Network for Furan-Based Chemicals and Materials, for Sustainable Development).


Project name: Promoting Sustainable Regional Development through Additive Manufacturing: A Cross-Border Initiative for a Resilient and Circular Economy

Project acronym: ADDCIRCLES


Goal: The main objective of ADDCIRCLES is to empower regional companies and networks for AM. The technology is perfectly suited to the region's business landscape, enabling the production of high value-added products through the development of sustainable solutions. As such, ADDCIRCLES will stimulate the region to transition to a resilient and circular economy. ADDCIRCLES aims to drive the implementation of AM in a way that improves resource efficiency in manufacturing and promotes recycling and the use of natural materials. The objective will be achieved by building a cooperation network of different transboundary value chains, as well as through two pilot projects on knowledge transfer at different stakeholder levels.

Based on these challenges, ADDCIRCLES has the following three objectives:

- To develop innovative solutions and methodologies for green AM and to achieve closed material loops with AM.

- Promote the implementation of AM at the industrial level through networking and real business cases.

- To strengthen the knowledge of AM among professionals at different levels.
