Enabling the Circular Economy with Additive Manufacturing

1 February 2023, 11.00-12.00 (CET)


Additive manufacturing is a powerful enabler of the circular economy, thanks to the contribution to the reduction of waste, the boost in reparations and re-manufacturing activities, as well as its impact on companies’ innovation and business models. The sector has the potential to provide multiple sustainability advantages by proposing a novel paradigm for design, manufacturing, and business models.

This webinar showcased best practice examples, which were part of the latest brochure on Additive Manufacturing.
