    knowledge Alliance for AdDitive Manufacturing

Who We Are

We are a consortium composed by eight partners, from five European countries, which works on filling the gap in the academical education system in the field of additive manufacturing.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is quickly moving into the mainstream production, given its clear advantages in terms of efficiency, flexibility and even from an environmental perspective. Due to its novelty and fast growth and magnitude of application, the AM field has a distinctive set of features: it is still quickly evolving and, as such, job positions are very hard-to-fill because of the insufficiency of manpower with the required expertise; similarly, currently available educational offers are unable to provide students with the needed skills that can meet the expected high levels for such high performance, high value products.

Consequently there are two important hurdles to overcome:

  • Absence of comprehensive and all-encompassing curricula/education (in universities) and
  • The availability of skilled employees for a wide variety of positions, including engineers with AM proficiency.
