Survey for AM workers

SAM (Sector Skills Strategy in Additive Manufacturing) consortium, representing both education and industry fields, is undertaking a study to identify the skills demand related to Additive Manufacturing or 3D printing in Europe.

If you are working in Additive Manufacturing / 3D printing, we invite you to take part in this survey on AM Skills for the Workforce until the 15th October 2020. 

The survey aims to identify relevant AM skills and new job profiles, which will be used to develop future education and training requirements. The survey will last for approximately 15 minutes, and is structured in four different sections: 

  • Section 1: General information
  • Section 2: Professional background
  • Section 3: AM skills
  • Section 4: AM Training

Please feel free to disseminate it among your network, colleagues, and workers. Also, we invite you to visit our website, where you can find the latest results and to follow SAM dissemination channels.

Conclusions and end of the meeting

PPP Made In Europe consultation

EFFRA is currently preparing the strategic research and innovation agenda (SRIA) for the Made In Europe Partnership under the next Research and Innovation Framework Programme 'Horizon Europe'.

In order to lay the foundations of the Made In Europe Partnership, a guidance document has been prepared in cooperation with the Eurpean Commission. The documents reflects the need for and the ambition of this new manufacturing partnership. It describes a set of Main Objectives and associated Research & Innovation Objectives, as well as a Key Performance Indicators. This guidance document builds on the vision that was described in the document 'EFFRA vision for a manufacturing partnership in Horizon Europe' that was published in March 2019.

Currently EFFRA carries out a consultation consisting of two main tracks:

-One track aims at collecting the opinion of individual experts who respond on behalf of their organisation (or on behalf of a part of their organisation)

-The other track collects information from the perspective of finished or ongoing European Projects, in particular addressing Factories of the Future PPP projects, but not excluding other relevant projects. You can find more information about this consultation here:
