First European school for additive manufacturing applied to chemical industries

The goal of this summer school is that you get an introduction to what Additive Manufacturing can do for the chemical industries and some hands-on experience on the design, the printing process and to get a flavour of what has already started in different fields. The registration of this first summer school will be free of charge. Attendees will have to cover food expenses, accommodation and trips to Prague.

Free registration

When: 30-31/08/2018
Location: Prague, Czech Republic.

Additive manufacturing is an advanced method of manufacturing novel and complex shapes. The flexibility in design can allow flexible design of unitary processes to unlock the true potential of chemical industries.

Ultimately, the adoption of any novel technology is pushed by the engineers who are designing novel and more efficient processes. The main limitation in the application of AM to chemical industries lies in the fact that the knowledge of such technologies is not part of most programmes of chemists or engineers.

The goal of this summer school is that you get an introduction to what AM can do for the chemical industries and some hands-on experience on the design, the printing process and to get a flavour of what has already started in different fields. We expect Master Students and PhD students related to chemistry and chemical, biological and environmental engineering.
