Additive International, formerly known as the International Conference for Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing, and Innovate UK have organised an event entitled ‘Business Innovation in Additive Manufacturing’ (AM).

Taking place on 10 July in Nottingham, UK, the event will bring together around forty teams working on Innovate UK-funded AM projects. The organizers say that it will provide a platform to showcase new business-focused research and innovations in AM and share best practices, ideas and gain support.

Each team will be invited to deliver a two-minute pitch, providing an overview of their project and its results so far. These projects span a variety of AM related developments including new materials, processes and products, improving post-processing techniques, design for AM and introducing AM into business.

A group of candidates will also deliver more in-depth presentations exploring the challenges, business applications and expected benefits of AM technology in line with their project objectives.

The full two-day Additive International program will officially begin on 11 July.
