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.
AMEC took place on 4 December 2019, from 9:00 to 11:00, Room JAN 6Q1, at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. The fifth edition was hosted by Maria Spyraki MEP (EPP), Susana Solís Pérez (RE) and Patrizia Toia (S&D), Members of the European Parliament.
Additive manufacturing shapes the sustainability of value chains, creating new opportunities for industry, society and the environment. Indeed, this AMEC showed the benefits of faster deployment of AM solutions in EU strategical sectors (automotive and healthcare).
