Additive manufacturing european conference (AMEC)

Tuesday December 7, 11:00 – 12:30 CET (ONLINE)

AMEC 2021

In the last years, the AM industry has been evolving at an unprecedented pace, moving beyond rapid prototyping and tooling applications. The main reasons of the success can be found the swift evolution of sustainable cross-sectorial demand, the increasing maturity of technologies, and the growing relevance of efficiency in any manufacturing process (in terms of material use, transport, logistics etc).

Thanks to technological advancements, AM will offer new and more performant products and superior agility and flexibility in production in many sectors.

The EU has the opportunity to lead the way in the industrialization of this sector. The 7th edition of AMEC will look at the latest technological improvement and application of AM in the different crucial industries (transport, medical, aerospace and construction).

The conference will be online on the 7th of December from 11:00 – 12:30. Save the date!

We need a cohesive and decisive European approach to quickly dismantle technological and policy barriers affecting AM growth in the continent.

To foster the interest of the EU community about this technology, CECIMO has been running every year since 2015 the European Additive Manufacturing Conference (AMEC). Organised in the European Parliament, it’s the only conference at EU level where senior industrialists talk directly to Members of the European Parliament and officials of the EU Institutions about AM.
