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.

Survey on AM Training Practices

SAM is a European initiative that aims to address the workforce development for Additive Manufacturing (AM) by developing a shared skills vision and collaborative learning solutions for the sector at European level. Please find more info at:
In this sense, we would like to understand and characterise the educational practices concerning Additive Manufacturing training in Europe.
The survey lasts for 8 to 10 min approx. It is based in three different sections:

·         Section 1: General info and background

·         Section 2: Existing training practices 

·      Section 3: Training needs

If your organisation is involved in education and training at vocational and higher or levels, participate in the survey  and contribute for the mapping of Educational Practices in Additive Manufacturing.



The MANUNET Call 2020 for proposals includes all fields in Manufacturing, structured in the following topics:

  1. Knowledge-based engineering, information and communication technologies for manufacturing, including technologies for Industry 4.0 (for example industrial robotics, computer-aided engineering and design, automated manufacturing, zero defect manufacturing, product lifetime management, cyber-physical systems, IoT, control, big-data, analytics, connectivity and mobility, augmented reality, cyber security for processes, etc.).
  2. Manufacturing technologies for environmental and energy applications including resource efficiency, recycling (reuse, remanufacturing, etc) and circular economy in manufacturing processes.
  3. Adaptive manufacturing technologies including processes for removing, joining, adding, forming, consolidating, assembling and related advanced industrial machinery.
  4. Additive manufacturing (for example technologies, materials, products etc.)
  5. New materials for manufacturing (alloys, lubricants, coatings, textile fibres, construction, composites, insulation, multi-functional multi-materials etc.).
  6. New manufacturing methods, components and systems (development of demonstrators, devices, tooling and equipment, logistic systems, etc.).
  7. Other technologies, products and services related to the manufacturing field (logistic, supply chain, etc.)

Regions/countries participating in the MANUNET 2020 Call are:

Countries: Germany, Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Norway, Romania , Russian Federation, Spain, Turkey
