Machine Manufacturers' Validation on the Metal AM MSc By EWF

On the 23rd of March, ADMIRE's Metal AM MSc's structure was presented at CECIMO General Assembly, in Brussels. CECIMO is the European Association representing the common interests of the Machine Tool Industries of 15 National Associations. These Associations represent over 1300 industrial enterprises in Europe. Overall, relevant inputs were captured from experts for the design of the MSc regarding the necessary processes and materials to be covered and the job functions and activities that the graduates should be able to perform in the manufacturing industry.

ADMIRE Café-World at the "AM Stakeholder Workshop" By EWF

Last March 20th, ADMIRE has been presented at the Joint event AM Stakeholder Workshop,organising a World Café.
The aim of the World Café was to capture some key parameters of the actual state of knowledge to drive future skills development, a strategic vision for AM, which level of education needs to be addressed today to avoid shortages in skilled personnel in the near future; and validate which curricula needs to be developed and which infrastructure is needed to support skills development, employer's needs and scientific education.
This event also served as brokerage event for companies of the supply chain in AM, universities and research centres.
