AM-Motion is a European Funded Project of which EPMA is a consortium member. The overall objective of the AM-Motion is to contribute to a rapid market uptake of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies across Europe by connecting and upscaling existing initiatives and efforts, improving the conditions for large-scale, cross-regional demonstration and market deployment, and by involving a large number of key stakeholders, particularly from industry.
One of the outcomes of this European Funded Project was the establishment of the AM-Motion Student Summer School in September 2018, aimed at Post Graduate Students. The Summer School was organised with the support of AM experts and consortium partners in the second summer of the project. The event took place in Gijón, Spain from 4 - 7 July 2018 with the aim to exchange, spread the knowledge and give rise to vocations. Main AM concepts, existing materials and processes were explained, including design and manufacturing paradigms, market relevance and specific best practices examples.
