Welcome to EMN Meeting on 3D Printing 2019

The program is accessible here.
The next CCAM & 3D Printing 2020 will be held in Sicily on May 18-22.

The EMN Meeting on 3D Printing will take place from August 26 to 30, 2019 in St. Julian’s, Malta!

Malta is a Southern European island country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. It lies south of the island of Sicily, Italy. Malta is a popular tourist destination with its warm climate, numerous recreational areas, and architectural and historical monuments, including three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, Valletta, and seven megalithic temples which are some of the oldest free-standing structures in the world. Malta is a member of the Schengen Agreement and the official languages are Maltese and English.

The meeting aims to be a unique platform for leading scientists, researchers, scholars and engineers from academia, R&D laboratories and industry around the world to exchange, share and learn the most recent advancement on various aspects related to 3D printing. The meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. It will be not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family!

Look forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the 3D printing 2019.
