The MERA program is a R&D program for manufacturing engineering, driven in cooperation between Swedish automotive industry and public financiers. The program started in September 2005 and finishes at the end of 2008. The program consists of more than 50 research and development projects with a total turn over of more than 800 MSEK. More than 20 research groups and more than 60 companies participate in the projects in larger consortiums.
In this project catalogue you will find descriptions of finished or ongoing projects within the MERA program (Manufacturing Engineering Research Area). The catalogue is published prior to the final program conference held in October 2008. In the texts, written by the project managers, you will find information on objectives, expected and achieved results, realization and contact information for each project. In the catalogue you will also find a short program description, including a brief history and realization.
