FoFAM is carrying out several clustering actions around the selected value chains. Initially, the focus is on the analysis of AM-Related projects and the regions expertise to create a database of capabilities and latest developments around the key sectors.
The cluster database appears in the www.AM-platform.com website. The AM-Platform is a direct link and a reference to the AM community. In fact, today it counts with more than 400 members, 64% coming from industry.
To access to the database, it is necessary that the user is registered and logs in as a member of the AM Platform. Registration is very easy and free of charge.
A welcome page is made with some explanations of the purpose, the use and possible reports to be obtained from the database. The menu options make it very clear for the user how to work with the system without any other additional instructions. The structure of the menu options contains the following options:
- AM Sector value chain
- AM Projects
- AM Regions
- AM Actors
The database is already filled with the relevant information available now from the sectoral value chains, the projects, the regions and the actors. It will be continuously disseminated and updated.
