The breakthroughs of AM over time brought new challenges to Industry, including the need for highly qualified professionals to deal with them. In addition, AM knowledge was scattered among companies, Universities and Research & Development institutions. There was an urgent need to establish a strong connection between those sectors […]. Thus, developing and establishing a solid connection between Universities, Research Centers and Companies working in AM was the main purpose of ADMIRE – Alliance for ADditive Manufacturing between Industry and UniveRsitiEs. »
