This initiative at EU level, which brings together 16 partner organisations, will tackle the current European need to develop an effective system of identifying and anticipating the right skills for AM.
The SAM project intends to:

  • Build a sector skills strategy in AM;
  • Assess and anticipate skills (gaps and shortages) in AM;
  • Support the AM European Qualification System with data and foster the wideness of its scope;
  • (Re-)design professional profiles according to industry requirements;
  • Develop specific and relevant qualifications to be delivered for the AM Sector;
  • Increase the attractiveness of the sector to young people, whilst promoting gender balance;
  • Strengthen education-research-industry partnerships and encourage creativity “in companies and relevant educational and scientific institutions”;
  • Track students, trainees and job seekers and promote match making between job offer and search.
