9 November 2016 | Brussels, Belgiumeuropean_commission

On 9 November 2016, a high-level conference entitled “AM European Forum 2016” will take place in Brussels. The event takes place thanks to the support of the EU-funded projects “AM-Motion: A strategic approach to increasing Europe’s value proposition for Additive Manufacturing technologies and capabilities”, of which CECIMO is partner, and “FoFAM: Industrial and Regional Valorization of FoF AM projects.” Gathering high-level EU policy-makers, industry leaders, SMEs, academia and R&D centres, the conference will offer a forum for debate on the economic, social and technical challenges on Europe’s path to the industrialization of additive manufacturing in the digital age. The implications of this technology on the skillset needed in industry will be one of the central subjects of discussion. Emphasis will be put on education and skills barriers to the uptake of additive manufacturing across relevant value chains.
