for Additive Manufacturing technologies and capabilities

Great success of the Additive Manufacturing European Forum (AMEF 2016)

More than 200 experts from 26 different countries participated in the Additive Manufacturing European Forum (AMEF 2016) that was held on 9th November at the Albert Borschette Congress Center in Brussels.

The AM European Forum 2016 was born from two strategic H2020 Coordinated Support Actions: AM-Motion and FoFAM, and counted with the endorsement of the AM Platform.

All the key stakeholders, policy makers, industry leaders, SMEs, universities, research and technology centres..., were gathered together to find a common vision for a strategy and roadmap to pave the way for Europe to become the leading centre for AM.
