    Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganization of a workshop, panel, session or tutorial


    This joint event is an example of connecting existing initiatives and efforts to contribute to a rapid market uptake of AM technologies across Europe. In this workshop we will highlight complementary and merge the knowledge and expertise gathered within the context of AM Motion and Vanguard Initiative’s 3DP Pilot.
    The AM-MOTION European project fosters matchmaking and road mapping activity aiming at creating knowledge and connections that will accelerate the deployment of AM throughout Europe. Activities are performed through the interaction between different types of stakeholders with expertise in both technological and non-technological Additive Manufacturing (AM) aspects.
    Likewise, the key objective of the 3DP (3D printing) Pilot of the Vanguard Initiative is to accelerate market uptake of 3DP applications in the EU. This is done through development of industry-led, transregional demonstration platforms.
    This joint AM workshop focuses on AM regional and cross-regional activities, financial aspects as well as foreseen impact of AM-MOTION and Vanguard Initiative’s actions, thus involving financial, industrial and regional experts.
    The objectives of this workshop, organised jointly by the two initiative are:
    • To promote match making activities in the field of Additive Manufacturing
    • Identify key trends and developments in 3DP application groups’ based on AM roadmaps and Vanguard Initiative’s 3DP Pilot’s developments of joint demonstration projects
    • To present draft AM-MOTION identified gaps and actions for future research and innovation and evaluate their economic, social and environmental impacts.
    • To validate and further develop of AM maps of regional capacities with Vanguard Initiative’s regional experts;
    • To revise and validate AM-MOTION identified models for business collaborations;
    • To discuss the status of the demo-cases within the Vanguard Initiative 3DP Pilot.
