Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing

20 September 2023 - 21 September 2023

Are you interested in how to develop innovative products with Additive Manufacturing? Then sign up for our workshop Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing on September 20 and 21, 2023 in Hannover.

Look forward to a lunch-to-lunch workshop, including an evening event at the Mechanical Engineering Campus of Leibniz University Hannover as a great opportunity for networking.

The workshop is hosted by the LZH together with the Institute for Product Development (IPeG) of the Leibniz University Hannover.

General information

Additive Manufacturing enables innovative products in many areas, such as the automotive industries, machinery and plant engineering, medical technology or even in the consumer sector. The requirements for production are often completely different from those for conventional processes. In the workshop “Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing” we will discuss which factors are important and how scientists and companies can use them for their advantage.
