Event details:

This workshop will provide a brilliant opportunity to explore and discuss the digital opportunities, especially the development and application of 3D printing technology and its potential contribution to local/national economy.

A panel of external contributors include national and global influential researchers from various research areas, representatives from international renowned 3D printing distributors, 3D printing service providers and people from various industries (such as, people from Maritime and shipping industry) in which 3D printing skills are expected to refresh or innovate the industry’s development.

The aim is to drive lateral thinking and radical approaches to address research and 3D printing innovation challenges and to develop research and innovation projects which will contribute regional economy development, especially firstly in the Solent Area and then to the UK scope.

It will definitely be a valuable opportunity to explore, extend and strengthen the network. Do come along if you have your passion in contributing their intelligence into the 3D printing development and application in 21st century!
