Additive Manufacturing European Forum 2018 Summary
The Additive Manufacturing Forum - AMEF2018 was held in Brussels on 23 and 24 October 2018, bringing together a range of stakeholders, from industrialists to policy makers, to discuss and learn about the importance of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies and what is needed to accelerate its uptake.
AMEF2018 described the broader picture on the status and the development of AM from not only the European and international perspectives but also at the regional level. The gaps and barriers to the further development and adoption of the technology were highlighted including important matters surrounding policy, business opportunities and options for the integration of AM into the production environment. For these reasons, it is important to continue to support the growth of the technology by improving the European market’s ecosystem conditions at both technological and non-technological levels.
There was 154 participants from across 24 different countries that attended AMEF2018.
