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)

Be involved to the “European AM Skills Strategy”- Letter of Support

The European project SAM (Sector Skills Strategy in Additive Manufacturing) project, aims to deliver together with all partners and stakeholders a shared vision and collaborative skill solutions capable to foster and support the growth, innovation and competitiveness in the Additive Manufacturing (AM) sector. AM gap drivers have been identified. They will support the developed strategy for the sector and it’s implementing activities foreseen in the AM Skills Strategy Roadmap 2021 – Overview on challenges and action document (find it below)achieving the following expected results:

3) Facilitate the access of professionals, students and industry to AM training

 4) Wider pool of qualified personnel that can “move” between different countries and industrial sectors

 5) Improved foresight of skills needs for the AM Sector

 6) Increase the number of people/students trained in AM in the short and long term across Europe

7) Greater access to funding to support AM-related skills development and sustainment
