Manufacturing as a service: The additive manufacturing promises to the EU economy
5-6 February 2019, Brussels, Belgium
I-Form, the SFI Research Centre for Advanced Manufacturing, is hosting a thought-provoking session on 3D printing in manufacturing at the ‘EU Industry Days’ event at The Egg in Brussels.
The session is titled: “Manufacturing as a service: The additive manufacturing promises to the EU economy”. The EU Commission event will be opened by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission.
The event is shaped around three themes: industry & sustainability; industry & globalisation; innovation & digitalisation.
At the I-Form session, keynote speakers and an expert panel will debate the promises and challenges 3D printing (additive manufacturing) brings to global manufacturing, including:
• Rethinking the current manufacturing model
• Putting the customer at the heart of the manufacturing process (the emergence of the ‘prosumer’)
• Identifying potential regulatory gaps (in areas such as IP and standards) that may emerge through a paradigm shift in manufacturing
• New supply chain models, new markets and new customer needs.
Speakers include experts from Siemens, Materialise, Prodintec, EY and I-Form.
