What is the AM-platform?

The AM-platform is a free of charge virtual central European area for all subject related to Additive Manufacturing (hereafter named AM)

The objective of the AM-platform is to contribute to a coherent strategy, understanding, development, dissemination and exploitation of AM.

AM is fragmented. Lots of organizations are working or doing research in this area but there is no coherent strategy and several interpret the subject differently. There is no central organization or place for peoples to for instance ask questions, to start a discussion, to find expertise, or to up- or download an interesting paper or article.

This platform helps to achieve the Lisbon & Gothenburg objectives as defined by the EC (to become the most dynamic and most competitive knowledge-based economy by 2010 and achieving sustainability by 2030).

The AM-platform is active since 2007 (formerly as the RM-platform)

CALL FOR ACTION-Projects COVID19

The European Commission-DG RTD has started to create a list of projects that could help in fight against the coronavirus. Especially the projects that can be directly exploited for combatting COVID-19 and its effects (firstly healthcare, and then for example transport, food, tourism, education, other sectors) within 12-24 months. 

 This is a request made in an urgent situation, but something like, for example, projects related to

             mobile 3D printers which could help hospitals with spare parts (e.g. valves for incubation)

             modular production lines which could fill a gap in the interrupted value chain

             modelling or simulation capacities which could find out how the virus spreads

             modular building components that could help build quickly medical facilities (similar to the hospital they built in Wuhan)

             something else that could help

 If you think that your project could somehow contribute, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I will forward your idea to the responsible directorate. Please include the following info:

volunteering ANTI COVID 3D PRINTING TASK FORCE

N95 type respirator is the critical protective equipment to save the lives of medical doctors and other medical professionals. The sufficient number of respirators is not available on the market which causes the situation of emergency.

CIIRC is currently developing own respirator and model for 3D printing. The prototype shall be ready for testing early next week. In case we are successful in tests, we will share the technical specification with all volunteering 3D printing labs for free to start the distributed manufacturing during this emergency.

If you are willing to cooperate, please add your name in this doc
