AM-Platform informal meeting November 27th at Euromold 2014 Frankfurt
Dear AM Platform member,
Many meetings and events are planned the last months of the year: Euromold, Brookerages, national events, ...
Based on this we decided that it would be too busy to organize a full day AM-Platform meeting as we are used to. It is shifted to Spring – Jan – Feb 2015 (details to follow).
However, we want to provide an opportunity to meet with you and discuss new H2020 project ideas, recent developments and trends in AM and beyond.
On behalf of the AM-Platform management board, I kindly invite you to attend the informal AM-Platform meeting which will be held at Euromold in Frankfurt.
We will meet for a chat, drink and snack on Thursday November 27th from 15.00 on at the TNO booth in Hall 11 Stand 132 on Euromold 2014 Frankfurt.
We look forward to meeting you there and exchange latest ideas and news & achievements!
With kind regards on behalf of the AM-Platform,
NB: for organizational purposes, we would appreciate a note on your attendance and possibly dietary needs!

Strategic Research Agenda: release 2014
This (updated) Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) has been produced by the AM Sub-Platform, as an update to the previous Additive Manufacturing (AM) SRAs produced and to highlight priority areas for future development.
Manufacturing has been highlighted by the European Union as one of the key enablers to tackling some of the European challenges and their subsequent targets, in particularly for growth and creating high quality value-adding jobs. The Horizon 2020 Framework Programme is taking action to support and promote business research and innovation in enabling technologies. One of the priority actions will cover advanced manufacturing and processes (Domain 1 of the Factories of the Future Multi-annual Roadmap (EFFRA, 27 November 2012)).
- MANUFUTURE launched the European 'Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA) in 2009 with the objective to encourage (pre-competitive) research on production technologies within the European Research Area. This was to be achieved through engagement with the ‘Factories of the Future’ (FoF) Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with the European Union (Bessey, 15 May 2012).
- FoF has developed a roadmap for 'Factories of the Future 2020' (EFFRA, 27 November 2012). This roadmap highlights AM as a ‘key advanced manufacturing process’ and one where a broad range of benefits can be realised, including its potential for supporting environmental sustainability for manufacturing.
Please find the updated document here.
